Joining Greg and Tony Tunes in this edition of the Kipper the Cat 78s show is rare record collector Steve Wallace. Steve started collecting 78s in 1975 and his collection includes many rare and unusual Blues, R & B, and Rock and Roll 78s with a particular interest in those early records and performers that were at the beginning of Soul Music.

So, in Part 1 of this kipper the cat show special we take a first look at those artists that were there when Soul began.

In Part 2 which will be on Tuesday April 5th on Cambridge 105 - Legendary Gospel 78s collector and blues performer Big Joe Louis (https://www.facebook.com/bigjoelouisfans/timeline) will be joining the Kipper the Cat team in the Studio to look at how early Gospel music helped shape the Soul and Pop Music scene.

Brilliant! I cant believe the Jo Ann Henderson came out on a 78!
I have a lot of listening to do!
