The (Original R&B) Diamonds & Songs of Detroit this week on The Juke In The Back

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.
The “Juke In The Back” takes a look at one of New York’s greatest, but almost unheard of R&B vocal groups: The Diamonds.  They only got 3 singles released by Atlantic Records during 1952 and ’53 and would fade into history by 1955, but their harmonies are second to none.  “Sonny” Wright’s lead baritone remains much admired as does Myles Hardy’s tenor.  Hear all six of the Diamond’s known songs this week.  Plus, Matt The Cat also features R&B songs about Detroit with Blind Blake, Tampa Red, John Lee Hooker and Fats Domino weighing in on the Motor City and Hastings Street, the cultural center of African-American life during the 20s to the 60s. A timely theme with the North American release of the movie, "Detroit" yesterday.
Hear Juke in the Back, Saturday afternoon at 03:00 PM Eastern, with an encore presentation Thursday morning at 04:00 AM Eastern, on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys, making four decades of magic mushroom memories!
