Fellow Time Travelers

posted by on September 4 at 14:51 PM

I posted this on Line-Out over the weekend, but I feel like I should have posted it on Slog. A) Line-Out was Bumbershoot crazy this weekend, and so, my 1955 time travel didn’t exactly fit in the mix. B) I think most of my fellow 1955 time travelers are on Slog anyway.

There’s an amazing splice of rock DNA floating around online: An actual Alan Freed radio broadcast from early 1955 on WINS in NYC.

The show heats up about 30 minutes in when Freed plays some Mickey “Guitar” Baker, Ray Charles, and B.B. King.

I could not get 30 seconds in, let alone 30 minutes? Does the Ritalin allow you to hang on?

So, there's this thing on computers, StrangerDanger, that lets you scroll ahead.
