There Goes That Song Again

Singing sensation of the early 1950s, Johnnie Ray, has been referred to as the “missing link” between the “easy listening” artists of the 1940s and “rock and roll” of the latter 1950s. Popular in the early 50s, he’d faded by the 1960s.

Coinciding with 89th anniversary of Jonnie’s birth on 10 January in our “Three O’Clock Special” this week we’ll cover Johnnie’s early years in Part 1. We’ll hear some of his well-known hits, but also some of his lesser know songs typical of the period.
