RB Pioneers: Titus Turner and Buddy Lucas 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” spotlights two extremely underrated RB pioneers this week: Titus Turner and saxophonist Buddy Lucas.  Turner recorded some amazing RB sides for Regal, Okeh, Wing, King and many other top labels, but he just couldn’t score a sizable hit on his own.  Today he is mostly remembered as a songwriter and his songs were hits by the likes of Little Willie John (“All Around The World,” “Leave My Kitten Alone”) and Ray Charles (“Sticks And Stones,” “Get On The Right Track”).  Buddy Lucas is mostly remembered today as a great session player, but he scored a few hits under his own name in the early 1950s for the Jubilee Label.  Matt The Cat tells their stories and plays some of their greatest sides.  Hear what you’ve been missing on this week’s “Juke In The Back.”
Join Matt the Cat for Juke in the Back, tomorrow afternoon at 03:00 PM Eastern, after Ringo and before Anne, on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys, making four decades of magic mushroom memories!
