Favoriting Little Records with The Big G: Playlist from April 25, 2020 Favoriting

The Big G's avatar View The Big G's profile Favoriting

“Little Records” is a two hour radio show hosted by “The Big G” focusing on the little Records, both literal and figurative. 45’s of high quality but lowly chart stature. Mostly we’ll be covering Blues, Jazz, R&B, Country and Rock & Roll, but the show is freeform so anything that’s appeared on a 45RPM record, starting with RCA’s introduction of the format in 1949 is fair game.

Phantom Of Rock is my new favorite record.
Avatar 8:06pm
Todd-o-phonic Todd:

I love cover versions like Johnny Copeland's that have absolutely no passing resemblance to the original record.

Dungaroos Kipawah:

This Johnny Copeland version is brilliant

@Dungaroos Kipawah: You are a genius because you think like me.

The Big G:

Copeland knew the song always needed a floor Tom solo.
  8:13pm
The Big G:

Todd, wait till you hear Pt. 2 of the rock era.

If I post "that's a great record!" every time you play a great record, it will get boring fast, so I'll just post one blanket "THAT'S A GREAT RECORD!!!!" shout.

Thanks Bob and Gina! Greg, I've already bought 2 of these 45's since the show started!

The Big G:

Todd, I knew it!!!!!! I could see you in my minds eye, check No availability, average price and finally pushing the “birthday button”!
  8:27pm
bigplanetnoise:

Ahhh, Big G - this is so much fun! The only thing that would make it even better is if we were again eating golumpkes and drinking cold, cheap beer together in the backwoods of Pennsylvania.....

This is awesome!
  8:29pm
The Big G:

Hey BPN, refresh me! Who am I speakin’ with?
