The (original R&B) Diamonds & Songs about Detroit 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” takes a look at one of New York’s greatest, but almost unheard of R&B vocal groups: The Diamonds.  They only got 3 singles released by Atlantic Records during 1952 and ’53 and would fade into history by 1955, but their harmonies are second to none.  “Sonny” Wright’s lead baritone remains much admired as does Myles Hardy’s tenor.  Hear all six of the Diamond’s known songs this week.  Plus, Matt The Cat also features R&B songs about Detroit with Blind Blake, Tampa Red, John Lee Hooker and Fats Domino weighing in on the Motor City and Hastings Street, the cultural center of African-American life during the 20s to the 60s.
Join Matt the Cat for Juke in the Back, tomorrow morning at 04:00 AM Eastern, with an encore presentation, Sunday afternoon at 03:00 PM Eastern, after "The Lost Lennon Tapes" with Elliot Mintz and before "Only The 80s" with Anne Cosgrove, on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys, making four decades of magic mushroom memories!
