Rockabilly N Blues Radio Hour 09-03-18

We get a leg up on everyone this week as we crank up King Leg and his cover of Little Richard's "Lucille" on the latest Rockabilly N Blues Radio Hour.  We also spin new tracks from Vince & The Sun Boppers, Cat Lee King & His Cocks, Cherry Divine, Billie & The Kids and Crystal & Runnin' Wild.  Our Heavy Hitter Triple Threat segment honors Joe Clay with covers by Levi Dexter & The Ripchords and The Road Kings.  We also step into the Rockabilly N Blues Time Machine for the week ending May 30, 1953 to hear the top 3 tunes on the Rhythm & Blues chart.  Plus, we hear rockers from Eddie Cochran, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers, Ray Collin's Hot Club, Faye Reis, Big Sandy with Los Straitjackets and Rocky Burnette with Darrel Higham!
