CD Reviews

Authenic recreation of a 1950's; 1960's radio program
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In 1948 Craig " Porky " Chedwick was hired by a black Pittsburgh, Pa radio station. He finally got his limited air time slot and wanting to play something different than the current r & b , he found old 78 rpm records in the basement of the station. Porky started referring to them as dusty discs and the oldie craze was started. Porky set many attendance records at dances and rock and roll shows in the mid 1960's and was Billboards number one D.J. in 1965 for the entire country. He still lives in Pittsburgh and athough in his mid 70's he continues to D.J. oldies dances. He is called the Living Legend and is what Wolf Man Jack pretented to be, The Originator of the Oldies. This cd is like listening to his show on WAMO. 860AM Pittsburgh. As Porky would say, It's Groovy Baby!!!!"
Cruisin' With Porky Chedwick..The Daddio of the Raddio
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Porky the other reviews here....he's a living legend. The TRUE originator of the oldies from the capital of the R&B and DooWop oldies world...Pittsburgh. Like the Porky promo on WAMO 860 used to say..."often imitated, but never duplicated." All of the others are pretenders to the claim of the originators of the oldies. Porky of the first DJs inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...a legend, a wonderful human being.....The Daddio of the Raddio; The Boss Man, The Platter Pushin' Papa; My Name's Not George Washington,It's Pork Torkington; I've Got More Lines Than Bell Telephone; I've Got More Jams Than Smuckers; Hello, Eddie? Heck No!!..Cheddie!! Pork the Tork; I'm Gonna Fry Your Brain; Pound the Boards; Blow Your Horn; I Got The Goods From Outta the, Cool advice to you is....BUY this friggin CD or's a piece of history. God Bless You, Boss Man.....We Love You Porky."
Great - yes! Historically Accurate - not

"If you can accept the fact that this recording was not made in the 1950s, there is nothing bad that can be said about this CD. Despite his age, Porky tries very hard to sound like his former self, but a careful ear will hear him trying to avoid having his dentures fall out. Kinda like Don Adams still trying to do his Maxwell Smart voice in commercials and cartoons. A little imagination and you are back listening to a composite of Porky's shows in the '50s. And the music is great!"
