Rumble host Doug Lauderdale was born to love rockabilly. Pregnant with little Doug, Ma Lauderdale burned up the piano playing rockabilly tunes such as “Blue Suede Shoes” for his dad. Music was so much in his blood that Doug became a radio announcer in cities that included Knoxville, Nashville, and Denver, and at one time worked as a professional karaoke singer.

These days, Doug is a stagehand setting up shows at local and regional theatres and festivals. It’s one of his favorite gigs in a long line of professions that include the Marine Corps, coal miner, prison guard, pawn shop clerk, and working cowboy.

While “One for the money…” and hooks like it are what excite Doug to spin rockabilly and all its cousins, he might just throw in a line about his colorful past to spice up the show.

    We love your show here at work!

    I was wondering if you had heard Hot Rod Lincoln Live! by Bill Kirchen? He plays a tribute to a lot of musicians in the middle of the Hot Rod Lincoln song. I knew I had heard that “Rumble” riff before. It was in Hot Rod Lincoln. He also does a tribute to B. B King, THE King, Carole King, Billy Jean King, Don King……etc. :)

    If you haven’t heard it, it’s definately worth a listen. I think you should play it at least once a month! :)

    I also apprecaite you playing FZ. I’ve never heard Zappa played on the radio any where else before (well, I think I heard Dancing Fool once upon a time, but that was a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away, and not one of his better songs).

    We appreciate your taste and preserving the old, classic, real music.
