THE FRANTIC ONE! 01 – GREAT GOOGA MOOGA

The late great Ernie Durham is here with the first of five special programs taken from the Vintage Radio Vaults, recorded in the 1990s for WBBC-AM in Flint and WDET-FM in Detroit. When I was growing up outside of Flint, Michigan in the 1950s the Ernie Durham show was at the center of my musical life; I listened every night for several years and gained my appreciation and knowledge of rhythm & blues from the Frantic One. Our first rogram in this series has music by Jackie Wilson, The Quintones, The Miracles, Kenny Martin, Al Smith, The Imperials, The Spaniels, Dale Hawkins, Red Prysock, Jimmy Reed, Chuck Berry, Bill Doggett, Texas Red, Peggy Lee, Thurston Harris, Ivory Joe Hunter, Count Basie & Joe Williams, and Cozy Cole.
