Pee Wee and the Prophets - Fat Woman


Pee Wee and the Prophets

Fat Woman

No one seems to remember Pee Wee and the Prophets, except Pete Dakan. who saw them entertaining the crowd at the Billy's Meadowbrook Inn.

The Raven label located in Clarksburg, W.Va. had only few releases.

Panhandle Music, publisher company, was owned by John Bava (of Cozy Records, Davis, West Virginia).

  1. I also remember PeeWee and the Prophets who played around Clarksburg, Fairmont, and surrounding areas. I danced to them a few times, maybe even with Pete Dakan. They were a great band.

  6. I think Raven Records was owned by Clarksburg radio DJ, Lee Rhodes (I hope that's the correct name). In a WBOY-TV interview from back in the day, he announced he was forming the record company and that he chose the name "Raven Records" because it fit into the music scene since there were groups named the Animals,Beatles, etc.
