Greetings, Snap Crackle Pop fans,
I'm thrilled to announce - the tradition continues. Paul Grant and I will hit the airwaves one more time with a New Years morning edition of Snap Crackle Pop. Tune in to CBC Radio One on Tuesday, January 1, 2008 from six to eight-thirty AM for two and a half hours of tantalizingly entertaining radio. We'll be spinning all three speeds - 33, 45 and 78 rpm.
We'll start the first hour with some John Coltrane, moving along with a few lively morning tunes, a couple 'end of the party' numbers, finishing up with a short feature on songwriter Johnny Mercer.
As always, the second hour will be nothin' but a Shellac Shack Shuffle - all 78s between 7 and 8 AM (7:30 and 8:30 AM in Newfoundland). You'll hear some fine jazz, blues, rock and roll, C&W and more during that rapidly rotating hour.
The last half hour positively rocks as Paul and I re-visit my days as a high-school sock-hop 45 spinner. We're talkin' Paul Revere & The Raiders, Country Joe & The Fish, Moby Grape, Wes Dakus & The Rebels etc - all from original 45s.
All in all, it's gonna be a heckuva lot of fun as Paul Grant and I celebrate the coming of a brand new year.
And, folks- thanks, always, for your excellent and entertaining e-mails, both to me and to the CBC. Your solid support is a big part of why Paul and I have kept on doing this Snap Crackle Poppin' thing since September 1996. Keep the letters comin' and we'll keep on doing the shows. And, please - feel free to forward this note to anyone on your own mailing list who might like to have a listen to SCP.
Cheers and a big loud HAPPY NEW YEAR from Paul Grant and from me,
PS. If you'd like a weekly fix of tunes from my 'slightly cluttered basement' you can tune in every Monday evening (six PM, Mountain Time) to Roy's Record Room on the CKUA radio network - via your AM or FM radio if you're in Alberta, via your computer at www.CKUA.com if you're anywhere else in the world. I've put together some special shows for the Christmas Eve and New Years Eve editions of RRR.
Here's a link to the RRR section of the CKUA website for more info.
And, feel free to let me know if you'd like to be on the RRR e-mail list.
