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 (see the list of the main stations 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, Cozy Powell, Duncan Browne, Nashville Teens and Kim Wilde 

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. From the same label comes a Neil Sedaka CD - featuring all the early RCA hits. 

A superb boxed set by the Searchers is on release featuring their hits and their albums for Pye. Really well put together, thius is a must for fans as it is mid-priced.

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 now Chairman of Isles FM and a Board consultant to another. In 2002 we had a world exclusive on Frank Sinatra on Isles FM - see
