What R&B radio sounded like in 1950!

Listen to this great radio broadcast from November 1950 by the legendary Dewey Phillips, the grandaddy of rock & roll radio.

Broadcast on WHBQ in Memphis, Phillips is in manic form, singing along to the records, joking, reading adverts Рthis is what rock & roll radio was all about.

He plays platters (all 78rpm) by Amos Milburn, Little Willie Litllefiled, Joe Turner, Mel Walker and Little Esther Phillips, Roy Milton, Charles Brown and others. Great stuff!
