Australian-EPs-Ep.2 Johnny O’Keefe & The Dee Jays
Play • 33 min

This week we return to the EP series with an episode focussed on Johnny O’Keefe & The Dee Jays’ first five EPs, 1958-60. This is an attempt to look at the career of Johnny O’Keefe from a different perspective. Future episodes will move through the EPs of the 60s and the early-70s; and there’s plenty of them! In researching this, and future, episodes, I’m indebted to the work of Jeff Ellis; “Australian Festival EP Deluxe Edition 2015”, and to Bob Hayden’s and Don Hudson’s work, “Johnny O’Keefe Discography 78s, 45s, EPs, LPs”. Do you know how many of the tracks on those five EPs also appeared on a 45? Listen - you may be surprised by the answer!
