"Juke In The Back" Now on Voice Of America!

Postby Matt The Cat » Sat Sep 17, 2011 10:10 am

On Saturday, September 17, 2011, “Juke In The Back,” America’s weekly showcase for 1940s and ’50s Rhythm & Blues, will debut on Voice Of America’s Music Mix Network. The show will air at various times throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America.

I’m very excited to see “Juke” expand this way, so now the rest of the world can be exposed to this often overlooked piece of America’s musical legacy. I produce “Juke In The Back” every week with no financial gain. The show has been building from the ground up for the past year and a half and I’m thrilled that it will soon be getting more exposure.

Matt The Cat presents the soul that came before rock n’ roll: 1950s rhythm and blues. Each week, this underrated and rollicking music plays on that old Rockola Jukebox in the back.

If you wanted to hear rhythm & blues during the 1950s, you couldn’t get it from the juke box in the front. No, no! In order to hear that glorious, down and dirty R&B, you had to go to the low-lit, spit-shined “Juke In The Back.” These songs are the building blocks of rock n’ roll. These are the records that inspired Elvis and single-handily led to the rock n’ roll explosion of the mid-1950s. Big Joe Turner, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Ruth Brown, Ray Charles, Wynonie Harris, LaVern Baker, Roy Brown, Joe Liggins, Professor Longhair and many more take center stage on The Juke In The Back. Matt The Cat hosted a similar program on XM Satellite Radio called “Harlem” and now he brings this great music and information back to radio.

“Juke In The Back” currently airs on over 20 radio stations in the US and will debut worldwide over Voice Of America’s Music Mix Network on Saturday, September 17, 2011.

Been a long time since I've checked out the page. Good to hear that things appear to be growing and this will be a powerful stage because people have been so influenced by our music in this country. God I wish you were on in St. Louis.....I still miss your nightly show.

this station recently went back to an 'oldies' format. I have that in quotes because they say 'Supertramp' fits......I say no but I hate aging. However.....perhaps a chance for the show to be here in ole' St. Lou.

We are still trying to get The Juke in the Back aired in the Seattle/Tacoma area. Anyone got any ideas?
