Bang & Jangle Radio Hour, Season 3, Episode 12: Rockabilly!

Maddox Brothers and Rose
I love rockabilly. I love that I can hoedown and tug my suspenders to the rhythms of old, and still get the force of rock and roll. Here's the playlist from last night, and not a weak link in it if you ask me:

Delmore Brothers - Freight Train Boogie
Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys - Ida Red Likes the Boogie
Tennessee Ernie Ford - Shotgun Boogie
Maddox Brothers and Rose - Gotta Go Get My Baby
Elvis Presley - Mystery Train
Carl Perkins - Honey Don't
Malcolm Yelvington - Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee
Billy Lee Riley - Baby Please Don't Go
Roy Orbison - The Clown
Eddie Cochran - Nervous Breakdown
Johnny Burnette - Train Kept a-Rollin'
Gene Vincent - Lotta Lovin'
Wanda Jackson - Funnel of Love
Petunia and the Vipers - Gitterbug
Bloodshot Bill - After Dark
The Lohrwoods - Barley and Grape Rag
The Million Dollar Quartet - I Shall Not Be Moved

Apologies to fans of the eighties rockabilly revival - I'm sure there's great stuff to be heard, but with the hour long format I was forced to pass it over. At least we had time for some shitkicking contemporary stuff. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go try and figure out that hybrid picking thing Scotty Moore makes sound so easy...

The Bang & Jangle Radio Hour airs Mondays 9:00-10:00 p.m. on Trent Radio, 92.7 in Peterborough, or online at

Season 3, Episode 12
