Happy New Year!
Thank you, cats n’ kittens for making 2005 a great year for XM and especially for me. The show has grown by leaps and bounds and it’s all because of your listenership, participation and love for some of the greatest music ever made. I’ve got some great things planned in 2006, so keep your radios on and turned up.
All the best to you and your family and here’s to hopes of a great, peaceful New Year.

This week on Harlem…
Elvis was busy being influenced by RHYTHM & BLUES!

This week HARLEM prowls around the back alleys of Memphis searching for the original R&B; versions of songs that ELVIS made immortally popular. January 8th marks what would have been Elvis’ 71st birthday. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to hear three different versions of the classic “Good Rockin’ Tonight” as it progressed from Roy Brown to Wynonie “Mr. Blues” Harris to ELVIS himself. There’s good rockin’ this week on the 50s on 5’s HARLEM with Matt The Cat.

Harlem will groove you on the 50s on 5 all week:
Monday 1/2 @ 1pm EST
Tuesday Night 1/3 @ 9pm over LA & midnight over NYC
Friday Night 1/6 @ 6pm over Portland, ME
