1956: Jukebox Rhythm Review1956: Jukebox Rhythm Review, Pt. 2

The “Juke In The Back” puts the ol’ Rockola Jukebox front and center on this week’s program as we present part 2 of a 2 part feature on the biggest jukebox jivers from 1956. It was the first full year of Rock n’ Roll Music crossing over from its Rhythm & Blues roots into mainstream Pop Culture. This was the year that Elvis broke through and scored massive hits on the Pop, R&B and Country Charts. We’ll dig on the future King’s biggest record of the year as well as monster crossover hits by Bill Doggett and Little Willie John. Matt The Cat also spins tunes by B.B. King, Gus Jinkins, Otis Rush and Muddy Waters, that were solely R&B hits. So grab a nickel, grab a dime and let’s make some time with the top jukebox spinners from the first half of 1956 on this week’s Jukebox Rhythm Review.
