Episode #394 – Roy Brown

Air Week: November 20-26, 2017

Roy Brown 

Roy Brown was one of early R&B’s undisputed blues shouters. He burst on the scene in 1947 with the original recording of “Good Rockin’ Tonight,” which would become a rock n’ roll and blues classic when covered by Wynonie Harris, Elvis Presley and countless others. He managed to chart 16 R&B hits from 1947-1957, most of them in the late ’40s and early ’50s. Many of these songs never get played on the radio anymore, but this week’s “Juke In The Back” with Matt The Cat will set the record straight as we spin every charting hit of Roy Brown’s career. We’ll dig on Brown’s jump blues, his ballads and his late career New Orleans comeback. So get down to the sound of Good Rockin’ Roy Brown on this week’s Juke In The Back, the “soul that came BEFORE rock n’ roll!”
