Fat Daddy

“…crazy ’bout that woman ’cause Caldonia is her name”. Tune in for a mix of sounds coming from the free form archives, celebrating a century of America’s music as is the habit each Friday morning at 9 on Sonoma County Community Radio. We’ll be exploring the Cherry Red Blues, Evil Gal Blues, and Louis Jordan’s jump piece Caldonia as part of our show today. Country sounds feature two Georges: Strait and Jones, soul sounds from The Miracles and Arthur Alexander, rhythm & blues from the ladies including Varetta Dillard, Etta James, and Albinia Jones, and an oddball opening set that takes us down into some strange and exotic places “Ahbe Casaba” and “Katanga!”

Dave Bartholomew Tribute

Dave Bartholomew passed away in June at the age of 100. You may not know his name, but he was one of the architects of a sound that would become rock n’ roll. A New Orleans fixture he was a band leader, trumpet player, arranger, producer, and songwriter whose keen ear and direction led him to become A&R man for Imperial Records where he met Fats Domino. His songwriting and arrangements can be heard on “Blueberry Hill”, “Ain’t That a Shame”, “Lawdy Miss Clawdy”, and hundreds more. Early rock has the signature of Dave Bartholomew just as the music of New Orleans would become identified with the expansiveness of jazz and rhythm & blues. We’ll hear early influences and early productions of Dave’s, prior to his collaborations with Fats Domino. And, as always, so much more.
