Rock and Roll had already made the scene in 1955, but it was Little Richard who took it up several notches to create something that was not quite like any music heard before! Art Rupe of Specialty Records called Little Richard “dynamic, completely uninhibited, unpredictable, and wild!”

Join host Rolando Garcia this Saturday night, May 16, from 6 to 8, as we celebrate the musical life of Richard Wayne Penniman in a special R&B Jukebox tribute. Tune in from anywhere on the planet on KUVO JAZZ! “A-Wop-Bop-A-Loo-Bop-A-Lop-Bam-Boom!”
