Posted: April 9th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Doo Wop, R&B, Rock n' Roll | Tags: , , , , , | 8 Comments »

“I’m A Fool To Care”

This week’s Cat Fight is a 3-way over the Ted Daffan tune, “I’m A Fool To Care.”  Facing off this week are 2 versions from 1954 by Anna Marie & The Stardusters (better known as Abbey Lincoln) and Philly’s own Castelles.  They are up against the biggest hit of the tune in the rock era by Joe Barry from 1961.  And for good measure, I’m also throwing in Les Paul and Mary Ford’s top 10 hit version also from ’54.

The show also focuses on mostly doo wop songs that vocalize the sound of bells ringing.  Sound crazy?  It is, but you’ve got to hear it to believe it!  So listen to the hour long show, vote and dig, baby!  This is the “world famous” Friday Night Cat Fight Show!

2/5/10 – Juniors Vs. Teenagers Cat Fight!

I Promise To Remember

This week, we get to the bottom of a doo wop classic!  This week’s song, “I Promise To Remember” was co-written by and originally recorded by Jimmy Castor with his 1956 group, The Juniors.  It failed to go anywhere, until Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers cut their own version.  The Teenagers hit #57 on the pop charts and #10 on the R&B charts during the summer of 1956 with “I Promise To Remember.  Listen to both of the versions and then decide which one you DIG the MOST and VOTE!

We wish the legendary Porky Chedwick a very happy 92nd birthday with a little tribute at the end of this week’s podcast.

This week’s Friday Night Cat Fight returns to the bread and butter that made my XM programs so successful; Doo wop.  I’m featuring an hour of “ultra” rare doo wop records.  How rare, you ask?  Well, these records are SO RARE that none of them were EVER played on my old radio programs.  I intentionally stayed away from the ol’ Night Prowl Show favorites.  So if you were a big fan of the old show, you’ll be hearing a lot of “new” stuff on this week’s Cat Fight.

You’ll hear The Flamingos, The Five Dollars, The Romancers and an unreleased gem from The Moonglows from their days at Chance Records.

Whether you call this music doo wop or vocal group harmony, you’re sure to dig this extra heapin’ helpin’ of smooth harmony sounds.  You will also get to vote on the doo wop classic, “White Cliffs Of Dover.”  I’m presenting 2 versions that never got airplay on the old show.  So sit back, relax and pretend like it was 2006 and all is well with the world.
