Revolution Rabbit how did someone record everything that happened back then. I lost hearing in my ear I was in row 12 so when I went to the Singer Bowl in August I took cotton wool.

Excellent show, Bill!

"Unlike many street groups of New York, The DESIRES worked with a vocal coach, Eddie Jones, formerly of the Demens on Teenage and the Emersons on Newport. In 1959 the group attracted the attention of BOBBETTES manager James Dailey, and it was he who took the youngsters to Hull Records with several demos of songs they'd written. Their first release was a solid New York-style ballad, "Let It Please Be You," with Bootsie singing his Frankie Lymon-like heart out. Despite its weak national showing, it was a song destined to become an East Coast favorite and a part of almost every '60s doo wop group's repertoire. The uptempo B side, "Hey Lena," also showcased their strong harmonies and a sound reminiscent of The Teenagers. Taking advantage of regional radio reaction to "Let It Please Be You," the Desires played such swank venues as Bellevue Hospital (home of the Bonnie Sisters) in New York and Jocko's Rollerskating Rink in New Jersey while traveling up and down the East Coast performing with The Paragons, The Jesters, and The Kodaks, among others. The Desires' second 45, "Rendezvous with You," was released in 1960 and received somewhat less response than their previous . . . . "

Looking Stuff Up, I heard Bill play a song older than "Tell Me So". It was from the Mills Brothers.
  Sun. 2/26/17 10:25am looking 78s up:

The Mills Brothers' 1944 "Till Then," beautiful song, played 2014 & 2012.

And Louis Jordan's "Caldonia".
  Mon. 2/27/17 5:30am looking 78s up:

Apparently vinyl 45s that warped but were less prone to breaking began displacing shellac 78s around 1950-1952. Think I read the 16 2/3 rpm format with its large center hole didn't work out for Chrysler car players, got some use for speech for the blind, was sent to space on Voyager or such.

Y'all missed "Rock & Roll" by Wild Bill Moore from the late 40's (vocal by Scatman Crothers). It's cool that you compiled the list. Grazie!
  Fri. 3/31/17 11:00am Iamthedj:

I've prolly also spun "When the Levee Breaks" by Memphis Minnie and what's-his-name, circa '29.
  Fri. 3/31/17 11:04am Iamthedj:

"Fat Man" by Fats, "Rocket 88" by Jackie Brenston, yadda yadda
