It’s night time in the big city

Vandals deface a wall

There are no stars in the sky.

“Here at TTRH, we’ve always aspired to be the Cadillac of radio shows. So it’s only apropos that we take one of those baby’s out on the road!”

Singers and Songs

  • A Pretty Girl (A Cadillac and Some Money)

    “That’s from 19 and 64, and you can tell by the way that saxophone roars in that rock and roll was just around the corner.”

  • Brand New Cadillac

    “Perhaps the best rockabilly record to come out of England.”

  • Paul and Dud Bascomb
    Pink Cadillac

    “You can tell those guys got their start in a swing band. You hear a little bit of Count Basie’s ‘Sent For You Yesterday and Here You Come Today’ in that song.”

  • Cadillac And Model A

    “One of them mid-fifties recordings. Features Bob’s brother, Billy Jack Wills. I like this song because it uses Cadillac as a verb.”

  • Bo Diddley
  • Howie Strange
    Real Gone Daddy
  • Mildred Jones
    Mr. Thrill

    “A song that’s kinda like a single entendre”

  • Andre Williams
    Cadillac Jack
  • Jeannie With The Light Brown Cadillac
  • Jerry McCain
    Courtin’ in a Cadillac

    “A record like this isn’t even about the song, it’s about the whole thing: the singer, the musicians, the lyrics and the sound – especially the sound. You couldn’t make a record that sounds like this today.”

  • The Blasters
    Long White Cadillac
  • Speedo

    “One of the premier rhythm and blues vocal groups…In front and center was Earl Carroll, with a straw hat and a cane. He would always bring down the house when he sang the song that gave him his nickname. In 1961, Earl got an offer to join The Coasters, and for the next 20 years he toured and recorded with them. That was a time when there was more than one Coasters group out there on the road. I can’t speak about the other ones, but if you saw the Coasters with Earl Carroll you were in for one hell of a show.”

  • Geronimo’s Cadillac

    “The veracity of this song is not total; however, it is quite catchy.”

  • Dizzy Gillespie
    Swing Low, Sweet Cadillac
  • Be Thankful For What You Got
