The Orioles 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.
This week, the “Juke In The Back” spotlights the most influential rhythm & blues vocal group of all-time. The Orioles hailed from Baltimore and featured lead vocals by Sonny Til, one of the most talented, dynamic and recognizable voices in history. Their first record, “It’s Too Soon To Know” from 1948 ignited a new vocal movement that would develop into doo wop in the rock n’ roll era. Til enjoyed tremendous success until he was vocally dethroned in the early 1950s by Clyde McPhatter and the new school of R&B vocal groups. Matt The Cat is joined by Diz Russell, who became an Oriole in the mid-1950s and still leads a group of Orioles today. Russell knew Sonny Til personally and provides some prospective on these historic and influential recordings as the “Juke” focuses on the golden era of Orioles. Their biggest hit, “Crying In The Chapel” would also prove to be the group’s undoing. Fly high with the “high flying Orioles” as we celebrate R&B vocal groups in their purest form on this week’s “Juke In The Back.”
Join Matt the Cat for Juke in the Back, tomorrow morning at 04:00 AM Eastern, with an encore presentation, Saturday afternoon at 03:00 PM Eastern, on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys, making four decades of magic mushroom memories!
