Chuck Willis, Part 2 – 1954-58 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.
"Juke In The Back" completes its 2 part special on the great Chuck Willis.  This week, in part 2, we focus on Chuck's amazing crossover success in the late 1950s with huge pop hits like "C. C. Rider," "Betty And Dupree," "What Am I Livin' For" and "Hang Up My Rock n' Roll Shoes."  Willis' career ended with him on top after his tragic death in 1958 at the age of 30.
Chuck Willis is one of the many underrated 1950s R&B performers.  Pop audiences only remember him for a handful of tunes, yet he was extremely popular on the R&B-side of the 1950s.
Each week, the "Juke In The Back" with Matt The Cat brings the music and stories of this oft forgotten part of American Music.
