Hi, I’m Gene Stevens – with the latest in our year-long adventures in various music genres. It’s perhaps our most exciting yet – digging for ‘the roots of rock’n’roll’ – peeling through the layers of rhythm & blues and rockabilly, back to classic blues and country.
How did legends like Jimmie Rodgers, Robert Johnson and Sister Rosetta Tharp, lead to Hank Williams and then to Bill Haley and Elvis ?
Re-discover the forgotten figures and their classic songs in this special first-of-a-two part ‘Rock & Roll’ celebration.
Plus: big birthday spotlights on Michael Buble and David Clayton-Thomas – in a must-hear edition of ‘Vintage Favourites’ this Sunday at 2, from Zoomer Radio.
