Hi, I’m Gene Stevens – with our year-long exploration of music genres, taking us ‘across the pond’ and back 6 decades – to the birth of British Rock’n’Roll. It was 60 years ago Cliff Richard scored his first UK hit. ‘England’s Elvis’, they called him – Cliff wasn’t the first or perhaps even the best of the early British rockers – but he was the biggest by far.
I’ll remember ‘Sir Cliff’ and the British artists of the early years – before the Beatles changed everything. It’s ‘The British Rock’n’Roll Roots Edition‘ of Vintage Favourites this Sunday at 2, from Zoomer Radio.
