Fats Domino part 2 this week on The Juke In The Back

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.
The Juke In The Back is proud to feature Fats Domino, who passed away on October 24th at the age of 89. He was one of the most influential and popular recording stars of both Rhythm & Blues and Rock n Roll music. Fats streak of hit records was nearly unbroken from 1950-1963 and he did it without changing his core sound. He just kept on playin the New Orleans boogie woogie music that he grew up with.
Antoine Fats Domino Jr. got his first recording contract in early December of 1949 as bandleader Dave Bartholomew introduced him to Lew Chudd, the head of LAs Imperial Records. Within days, they were in Cosimo Matassas famous JM studios cutting Fats first record, The Fat Man, which sold over one million copies and made him a star.
In part two of this two part series, Matt The Cat will spin the A and B sides of EVERY Fats Domino RB charting single from mid-1953 thru his enormous crossover success in 1955 with Aint It A Shame. That record not only spent 11 weeks on top of the RB charts, but it also crossed over and hit #10 on the Pop charts. Pat Boone would take his cover version to #1, thus giving Fats Domino even more Pop exposure.
This show will also feature some great non-charting records and fabulous instrumentals from this time period as well. So cmon and dig the RB roots of the late, great Fats Domino, this week on the Juke In The Back.
