Episode #740 – Tommy Brown

Air Week: July 8-14, 2024

Tommy Brown

Tommy Brown is one of the unsung blues shouters of the Rhythm & Blues Era. His only two charting records were done with the Griffin Brothers on Dot Records in 1951. He’ll always be remembered for the #1 smash, “Weepin’ & Cryin’,” but Brown had so many tremendous records under his own name that Matt The Cat just had to feature an entire “Juke In The Back” program on Tommy Brown. Raised in a small Georgia town, Brown took to performing at an early age and was soon headlining clubs in Atlanta. In 1950, he got a contract with Savoy Records and recorded his first record, “Atlanta Boogie.” After his 2 hits with the Griffin Brothers in ’51, Brown jumped around, working with all-star bands and recording for United, Pearl, King and Imperial. This week, Matt The Cat shines a light on Brown’s fantastic career, so come along for the ride and bring your your V-8, baby!
