Are you a Gene Pitney fan? - he's in the show most weeks but we have a weekly one-hour programme 'Gene Pitney And Friends' on twelve radio stations (ten in the UK - see the list below).  A Facebook page has been set up to support the programme, take requests and for information on the artist you won't find published elsewhere. It's a closed group so you need to apply to join The Gene Pitney Show

From Ace Records comes a CD tribute to Mickie Most who, together with his brother Dave was responsible for so many hit acts in the 60s, 70's and 80's. You will find The Animals, Donovan, Herman's Hermits and Hot Chocolate here - great music!

The Cherry Red group have a new release from Gladys Knight & The Pips showcasing their best recordings for the US Buddah and Columbia labels. Plenty of UK hits here and hard-to-find album tracks, too. 








The early hits from Ken Dodd are featured on a new CD from Jasmine. This contains his Decca releases and some of the early 60's Columbia recordings with Norman Newell - Ken really was a good singer as this CD shows. 

LATIN FOR LOVERS' is the title of a new CD set from Doris Day. This largely showcases her 1964 album and contains some of her best recordings - the album being made around the time of the success of 'Move Over Darling'. This comes from SFE Records. 

Ace Records cover the 60's decade with a number of different CD's from Jon Savage - going year by year between 1965 and 1967 so far.....and all these double CD releases contain interesting tracks, not just the usual chart-toppers; worth checking out.

I have been in the media business now for 50 years starting out with local newspapers in Surrey and then Record Mirror and Music Week, part of the Billboard group. I then joined Pye Records/ATV and Stoll-Moss Theatres at the end of the 60’s. In 1971 I moved to BBC Radios 1 & 2 in the early 70’s and then worked for Radio Luxembourg/Atlantic 252 in a management capacity and then ran local commercial stations in Glasgow, London and the Isles of Man and Lewis. My programme is currently broadcast by a mix of FM and internet stations and I am on the Board of Directors of one FM station and a Board consultant to another. In 2002 we had a world exclusive on Frank Sinatra on Isles FM - see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/1790935.stm or http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/news/sinatras-carousel-song-gets-airplay-after-14-years-671738.html
