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). We started this month on a local station in Gene's home-state of Connecticut - see details below and since then two further stations have joined us - West Norfolk Radio and Serenity Sound Radio. 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

Jasmine Records have a great new Jimmy Justice CD. Although he only had a handful of UK hits he made some great singles over a four year period for Pye...most of them collected here together with really good album tracks from the day. Really popular on the programme, we featured one of his tracks this week. 

Really good set from the Monkees issued by Rhino. All nine albums from 'Meet The Monkees' through to 'Changes' in 1970 - plays started this month - all CD's in the original sleeves, too. And there's a bonus CD, too, with later recordings.

And just below an imported release from the Crazy World of Arthur Brown - a set of 3CD's and an LP including, of course, their number one - 'Fire'. Expect to pay around £45 for this set.

Between 1959 and 1964 Nina Simone recorded for Colpix Records in the States and now Stateside Records - part of Warner Music Group - issue a double CD of her singles for the label. My favourite track is the stunning 'Solitaire; recorded in 1959, often on our playlist but this week we feature another track.

The early hits from Ken Dodd are featured on a new CD from Jasmine. This contains his Decca releases and some of the early Columbia recordings with Norman Newell. Plays on this release start soon.

An interesting release from Millie Jackson featuring her Spring Records sides - 'Exposed'. Now these tracks have been re-mixed but they sound pretty good to us, on the playlist pretty regularly. 

I always look forward to the CD compilations from ACE RECORDS as well and they always bring surprises. 'Baby I've Got It - More Motown Girls' contains many tracks being made available for the first time, including Gladys Knight & The Pips, the Marvelettes and Kim Weston.

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 or
