Rockabilly Radio

Blue Suede Shoes

So BBC Radio 2’s Rockabilly Disc Jockey, Richard Hawley, just reminded all us keen listeners that poor Carl Perkins in fact wrote and recorded the infamous “Blue Suede Shoes” first. A car accident was to be the barrier that allowed Elvis to go on and win acclaim for the record whilst Perkins lay in hospital.

A little tribute for the weekend if you will….
