Listen NOW to the Rick Coleman Special (Part 1 of 2)
This episode is a tribute to a man who was once a guest on this program. He was one of the first inductees into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame and is also a member of the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. Along with Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry he is one of the founding fathers of Rock 'n Roll. He is the legendary Fats Domino.
Who is Rick Coleman? Rick Coleman is the foremost authority on Fats Domino and the author of the critically acclaimed book "BLUE MONDAY: Fats Domino and the Lost Dawn of Rock 'n Roll." He also contributed articles for Rolling Stone, Billboard and Offbeat magaziine. His book BLUE MONDAY is the first ever biography of Fats Domino. Fats Domino is a somewhat reclusive rock 'n roll star--interviews are rare, but Rick Coleman's friendship with Fats allowed him the opportunity to interview Fats Domino on several occasions. The interview we present here and the music from Fats Domino may inspire you to Walk to New Orleans, find your Thrill on Blueberry Hill, or to be a Wheel Someday, Walk Someone Home or maybe just Let the Big Beat Keep You Rockin' In Your Seat...
