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.

On the playlist this week is the ever-popular Craig Douglas. A new CD from Jasmine features all of the Top Rank, Columbia & Decca hits - great value.  Also, Cherry Red have a new release from Jess Conrad titled 'Jess For You'. Apart from containing all the singles, this set also includes the four tracks from the hard-to-find TV show 'The Human Jungle' which Jess starred in with Herbert Lom. The episode was the 'Flip Side Man'.






Marty Wilde's career is celebrated by a boxed set from RPM that faithfully follows his career from the start until the present day. A couple of tracks are missing for copyright reasons but you have a lot of tracks here not previously available on CD. Plays start soon and this set (on RPM) really is selling well. 

From Ace Records comes a Dion CD with many of the tracks appearing for the first time in many years. The songs are drawn from two Columbia US albums - 'Ruby Baby' and 'Donna The Prima Donna'. Great versions of 'Go Away Little Girl' and 'End of the World' included here. 

Another superb boxed set is by the Searchers featuring their hits and five of their albums for Pye. This 6-CD collection is really well put together, this is a must for fans as it is mid-priced - from Cherry Red Records

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 http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/1790935.stm
