Billy “The Kid” Emerson 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” with Matt The Cat features Billy “The Kid” Emerson, a talented R&B singer and songwriter who never had a hit record, but his songs were covered by the likes of Elvis Presley and Billy Riley.
Originally from Tarpon Springs, FL, Billy Emerson burst on the scene in 1954, with the help of friend Ike Turner.  He released a string of stellar R&B records for Sun, before moving on to Vee-Jay, Chess and many others.
Elvis recorded Emerson’s very soulful, “When It Rains It Pours” and Billy Riley made Emerson’s “Red Hot” a rockabilly standard.
Billy “The Kid” Emerson’s story and music is the feature of this week’s “Juke In The Back.”
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!
