Keep Your Ears and Eyes Open

This is the Dj that first played Elvis Presley on the radio (listen out for the mentions). Legend has it, he played the record, 'That's All Right', back to back 14 times that first night because he was so amazed by the exciting fresh sound.

Dewey Phillips was a legend in his own right by having an individual style defying the stations and by being one of very few/first radio Djs around to play R&B, country, blues, jazz and anything in between.

After a bit of Dewey's machine gun style delivery he plays Sister Rosetta Tharpe singing 'Strange Things Happen'. Phenomenal.
