Saturday night at 7 PM, “The Grooveyard” celebrates recording executive Leonard Chess with an hour of songs released on Chess Records and it’s subsidiaries shortly after what would have been his 101st birthday.
Founded in 1950 and run by Leonard and his brother Phil, the company produced and released many important singles and albums, which are now regarded as central to the rock music canon. Musician and critic Cub Koda described Chess Records as “America’s greatest blues label.” The Grooveyard Top Ten will feature the hits of March 24, 1957, and we’ll play your requests during the Grooveyard Party Hour.
