This week on Ric on the Radio: Rockabilly. Thursday June 22nd at 9pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91!

One of the key styles of early rock n roll, Rockabilly combined rock and blues with country, or "hillbilly", music. Rockabilly artists tended to cultivate a wild, "bad boy" image. Some people consider Rockabilly artists to be rock's first punks. Although there have been many revivals throughout the years, we will focus on the original Rockabilly movement, which only lasted from about 1956 to 1960. Johnny Burnette, Jack Scott, Ray Smith, Sonny Fisher, Roy Orbison, Wanda Jackson, Gene Vincent, Barbara Pittman, Ersel Hickey, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Eddie Cochran, Vince Taylor, Charlie Feathers, Sonny Burgess, Ricky Nelson, Brenda Lee, and more! Thurs. June 22, 9-11pm.
