They Rock!

They Roll!!

They Swing!!!

The Treniers

The Treniers were one of the most important links between the big band sound of the 1940s and the jump blues jive of the 1950s. The Trenier brothers, Clifford and Claude are true “architects” of rock n’ roll, but they never get the credit that they rightfully deserve. This week, Harlem’s Matt The Cat is gonna dig through stacks of Treniers’ wax and pull out their greatest sides for you hep cats and crazy kittens. Don’t miss this week’s HARLEM on the 50s on 5.

Harlem Airs on XM5:
Monday 4/30 @ 1pm over NYC
Tuesday 5/1 @ midnight over Boston
Friday 5/4 @ 6pm over DC
Sunday 5/6 @ 11am over High Point, NC (The furniture capitol of the world)

Monday Night: April 23rd, The Night Prowl salutes:


The Big “O”, Roy Orbison had the most beautiful, powerful and versitile voice in all of rock n’ roll and on Monday Night we honor this legend on what would have been his 71st birthday. You’ll hear Roy tell his own story in his own words through incredible archival footage as well as the great music he recorded from the mid 50s to the mid 60s. We’ll pay particular attention to his rockabilly roots.

Don’t miss Roy Orbison on the Night Prowl Show!
