Are you a Gene Pitney fan? - he's in the show this week 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.

Jasmine Records have issued a Carole King CD (see below). She may have regarded herself as a songwriter in the early years but there were a few hits along the way - including the million-seller 'It Might As Well Rain Until September'. This includes a demo of 'Take Good Care Of My Baby' - a hit for Bobby Vee. Also, from the same label comes a collection of the early hits from Kenny Ball - and there were a lot of them! 'Singles Collection 1960-1962' is out now. See 
http://www.jasmine-records.co.uk/store/ for more information.
Esoteric Records have re-issued the Alan Price album 'Between Today and Yesterday' - on the playlist this week. First issued in 1974 this includes the excellent 'Jarrow Song' and now features some bonus tracks including the single version of 'In Times Like These'.






Warners have issued on CD the Miles Davis set 'Rubberband' recorded in the 1908s but not released until now. Really good album - we featured a track last week.

A new CD comes from Ace Records - '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, Marilyn Powell 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
