Lloyd Price

Lloyd Price visits with Matt The Cat

The Matt The Cat Interview

In his new book, Lloyd Price makes a convincing claim to be “The TRUE King Of The ’50s”.  After all, he was the cat who helped integrate the races when both black and white kids were dancing to and buying his 1952 smash, “Lawdy Miss Clawdy”.  He was the first teenager to sell over a million copies of a record.  He was barely in his 20s when he started his own record label.  He was one of the first artists to get a lucrative deal from a record label and he dominated the pop and R&B charts at the end of the decade with “Stagger Lee”, “Personality” and “I’m Gonna Get Married”.  And now for the first time, Lloyd Price tells his OWN story in his OWN words to me, Matt The Cat.

This is the uncut, unadulterated, unabridged Lloyd Price interview, complete with his insight, his stories and his music.  Lloyd talks about his entire career, from helping to invent rock n’ roll with “Lawdy Miss Clawdy” to staging one of the biggest sporting events in history with “The Rumble In The Jungle”.  It’s all here for you to enjoy.

At the end of the program, we’ll have a traditional Friday Night Cat Fight and a chance for YOU to VOTE for the TRUE KING of the ’50s!

    Very good show! Tough cat fight too. I sat for several moments trying to decide. Lloyd’s version should always get extra points for being the original. But this is from the Elvis period when he on top of his game. In The end, Lloyd gets the nod.

    OK NOW this is an interview!!! I finally have had two hours to devote to listening to it without interruption. Those times are so fascinating, I may have been there but it apparently was all over my head. Lloyd’s music is over the top. He gets my vote this week.

    I have now played this Cat fight podcast three times. Absolutely, the BEST Friday Night Cat Fight podcast yet. And just a rivoting interview with Lloyd. thanks so much for such a gem. My bote goes to Lloyd all the way.

    What a great, and fascinating interview mith Lloyd. I remember hearing parts of it on Harlem, and it was so cool to hear the whole thing. After hearing it, I definitely have to check out Lloyd’s book.
    As far as the cat fight, it’s a no brainer. Elvis couldn’t hold a candle to Lloyd.
    I’m gonna miss getting the prowler update for the next few weeks, but I can always replay past podcasts. to get my prowler fix. Have a great time, furry leader & CCK, and We’ll be looking forward to your return. Keep on prowlin. You’re the best.

    With all the great shows that Matt continues to give us here, there is a very interesting forum at You will find it under the decades discussion and it is titled “Matt The Cat”. You’ll all want to read it and when you do, believe me; you’ll all want to participate in our latest efforts to get Matt back on the satellite where he belongs.
