Tuesday 2nd February
This program was scheduled earlier, but postponed because of recent tribute programs. 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” artists of the latter 1950s. 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 known songs typical of the period.
