Sunland, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/21/2014 -- Sharon Evans and Rick Rogers, known as the King and Queen of Vaudeville, are headed for the world of talk radio with a brand new one hour show. Broadcasting live, coast to coast on the Cable Radio Network from Sunland-Tujunga, California The Evans and Rogers Show will present the story of popular American music and entertainment in a unique variety format. From its roots in the blending of African and European cultures during slavery times through to the popular entertainment of the 1960's, The Evans and Rogers Show will reveal just how America has set a standard and created an industry that has given us the greatest entertainment and entertainers the world has ever known: jazz, blues, ragtime, Tin-Pan-Alley, country/western, rock and roll, minstrel shows, vaudeville, standup comedy, plus the radio, movie and television industries. It all began in America and the stories of the people who created it are fascinating and endless.
Although CRN is talk radio, the musical comedy team of Evans and Rogers will bring to the airwaves the same happy music and laughter they present on stage. Live performances of vintage music and good wholesome comedy will provide a complement to the conversation and interviews with the experts, and with the people who have made their mark on the time line of entertainment history.
Among the guests slated to appear are 60's pop superstar Trini Lopez, comedian Shelley Berman, film star Terry Moore, and virtuoso guitarist Del Casher.
