Charlie Gillett - Hank Ballard/ Hamid Sagzou
Enjoyable Charlie Gillett radio show from 7-12-86 with guests Hank Ballard and Hamid Sagzou ( apologies if this spelling is wrong as it undoubtedly is!).
Wikipedia says of Hank Ballard-
"Hank Ballard (November 18, 1927 – March 2, 2003), born John Henry Kendricks, was a rhythm and blues singer, the lead vocalist of Hank Ballard and The Midnighters and one of the first proto-rock 'n' roll artists to emerge in the early 1950s. He played an integral part in the development of rock music, releasing the hit singles "Work With Me, Annie" and answer songs "Annie Had a Baby" and "Annie's Aunt Fannie" with his Midnighters. He later wrote and recorded "The Twist" and invented the dance, which was notably covered by Chubby Checker."
