RARE & SCRATCHY ROCK 'N ROLL_097 – CANADIAN ROCKERS WITH TOP 40 HIT SINGLES IN THE U.S. - 1955-1994
This edition spotlights “Top 40 U.S. Hit Singles Imported From Canada During The First 40 Years Of Rock & Roll” – 1955 to 1994.
We’ve received many requests from listeners to do an episode on Canadian rock acts, and we’re playin’ what you’re sayin.” One of those “Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll” fans is Canadian Mike Drew, a former music journalist. We asked him to be our special guest for this show. He’ll provide some interesting insights about the Canada’s contributions to U.S. rock and roll.
Along the way, we’ll hear from a 1950s rockabilly act that evolved into Bob Dylan’s backup band and eventually found its own great fame in the 1960s and 1970s. Then there are some American-born performers who moved to Canada and achieved great success when they exported their music back to the U.S.
Our resident Rockologist, Ken Deutsch, will be along with lots of fascinating factoids. And Radio Dave will have more of the greatest rock and roll stories on record.
