First Rock And Roll Song ?

 The mid Century was the birth of Rock And Roll,even though it had been evolving and had many roots preceding this time.Its a little subjective as to the first rock &roll song, some would say "Rocket 88" by Ike Turner and his Rhythm Kings was the first  in 1951.Others would give that credit to Fats Domino for his 1949 song "The Fat Man".Part of Rock And Roll roots lie in Rhythm & Blues.In the 1950's Fats Domino had no less than 59 singles in the R&B charts-37 of them reaching the Pop top 40 as well.Domino sold more records than any Fifties-era rocker except Elvis Presley.He was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1986. Click the link below to hear the podcast.
