"CRASHING THE PARTY blows a hole into any preconceived notions of Doo-Wop - original vocal group music - twice a week, in two hour episodes, on two different stations, available worldwide and beyond via our CTP 24/7 audio archive. Hosts Marc and Miriam trade rarities and obscurities from their respective collections of shellac in unscripted wild rides that are sure to surprise, amuse, and excite the heck out of listeners.
The show pulls from music from the soaring sounds of the 1940's to the wilder sounds of the early 1960s. It's no nostalgia trip, and although uncommon and unknown records are the focus, there is also a celebration of the key records which impacted the rhythm and blues charts and forged a path into radio and the general population. The idea is to show off a largely misrepresented and misunderstood, double decade era that produced countless records on labels large and small, and which was a pivot point to many new sounds for many generations of vocal group fans.
CRASHING THE PARTY also has an immediate focus on the back story - the originators in the world of record collecting who elevated their passion for rock n' roll of the vocal group persuasion into lifelong endeavors. First-time interviews with the the collector gods who were the earliest to find the artists, labels, and records themselves, and who shared their knowledge through the years now tell their own stories - how they got hooked on the sound, and where that love for vocal group sounds has taken them"https://www.crashingtheparty.co/
