A Party Of OneParty of One: Border Blastin’

When we think of the early days of Rock & Roll, we think Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, and Elvis, right?  
But back in the 50s and 60s, rock was a very multi-cultural thing.  We all know it absorbed the best of Black- (blues) and White- (country) American styles, but let's not forget our brothers and sisters to the south that have done so much to make this nation and its music what it is.  
Tonight on A Party of One, we're gonna go down into the barrios of the early days and take a listen to some good ol' Chicano Rock.  I'm talkin' Sam The Sham, I'm talkin' The Champs, Thee Midnighters, Richie Valens, Cannibal & the Headhunters, and of course, the first Punk Rock group ever, ? & the Mysterians.  So grab a carnita and an imported Pepsi and and meet me at 97.3 FM, WRIR.
