Chuck Willis, Part 1 – 1951-54 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.
This week, the "Juke" features part 1 of a 2 part special on the great and much underrated Chuck Willis.  Most cats n' chicks know Chuck's 1957 smash "C. C. Rider," but many are unfamiliar with the great records Chuck cut in the early 1950s.  That's a shame, because Willis was a rare talent in that he could sell a ballad as well if not better than his jump sides.  He was also a fantastic songwriter, writing hits for Ruth Brown and The Clovers, just to name a few.
Matt The Cat introduces you to the Okeh and Columbia sides of one of the greatest, this week on the "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 Mushroom FM Rockumentary" and before "The Song Remembers When" with Melissa Ricobono on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys, making four decades of magic mushroom memories!
