This week, the Juke In The Back honors one of the silent architects of Rock n' Roll, Richard Barrett. He's known today to fans of vocal group music as the lead singer and chief songwriter for The Valentines. When you dig a little deeper, you find that Barrett played a pivotal role in getting Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers, The Chantels and Little Anthony & the Imperials signed to Goldner's Gee and End Records. Produced for Pacifica Radio in Salem, MA.
