This week, we celebrate the life and music of Carl Lee Perkins! Carl was born on April 9th, 1932. Even though he passed away in 1998, his musical legacy is still strong! Joining me in the studio is writer and fellow rockabilly enthusiast, Randy Fox. You may recognize his name from publications such as Vintage Rock, Goldmine, Nashville Scene, Record Collector and others. We'll bring you some of Carl's classics, obscure gems and select covers from Dion, Robert Gordon with Link Wray and Sid King & The Five Strings. This is one you don't want to miss!
