This week, a Philly legend, the great Harvey Holiday joins the Imbalanced Boys as they dig into how vocal groups, singing together, changed in the early decades of Rock n' Roll. As popular music morphed from the '40s into the '50s, there was a change in tone, and approach. Young kids, singing together, unaccompanied, began to gain popularity. A&R guys were on the lookout in subways, bathrooms and ON STREET CORNERS!

Now retired, Harvey offers his views as someone who experienced it as a kid, became a part of it, and, of course, played the hell out of the music on the radio! His long-term radio influence is part of why there's such a strong R&B presence, even today, in the city where we live, Philadelphia!
