Rare & Scratchy Rock 'N Roll is rockumentary podcast series with the greatest rock and roll stories on record, plus the untold tales of some great hits that time forgot, but maybe you'll still remember.
On this edition, Radio Dave tells you some facts you might not know about some famous performers he knows you know: Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash. Their unplanned get together at the Sun Records studio in December 1956 became known as "The Million Dollar Quartet. More than 50 years later it inspired a hit Broadway musical of the same name that probably made millions for its creators, and it's still playing at various venues around the country. But the truth is that the story the stage musical tells is mostly untrue -- when it comes to the songs that Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash sang that day during their impromptu jam session.
So, Radio Dave relates the real story of "The Million Dollar Quartet" and details the not-real stuff that's in the stage musical -- and speculate just a bit on why the producers staged that show the way they did.
