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.

A new Joe Brown CD from Jasmine Records really showcases all of his early material right up to the release of IT ONLY TOOK A MINUTE. It also includes the earlier hits and tracks from the movie 'What A Crazy World'. Great value. 






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.  

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. 

A really good CD comes from ACE - 'LIVE IT UP - BAYSWATER BEAT GIRLS 1964-1967'. The Bayswater reference  is there because this was the HQ for the Philips Records Group in the 60s and this CD celebrates with offerings from Dusty Springfield, Kiki Dee, Susan Maughan, the Caravelles, Madeline Bell, Millie and even Diana Dors. Includes some hard-to-find tracks, too.

I have been in the media business now for more than 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
