RARE & SCRATCHY ROCK 'N ROLL_072 - THE COMPLETE HIT SINGLES HISTORY OF CONNIE FRANCIS, PART 2
This is part two of our two-part salute to the most commercially successful female rock and pop singer of all-time. We’ll complete our chronology of her U.S. singles history, along with the original versions by other artists that inspired her hit renditions. We’ll also track several more of her foreign language hits, too.
This includes additional movie music plus her memorable and moving tribute to President John F. Kennedy in the aftermath of his tragic assassination.
And we’ll report on her tireless efforts on behalf of U.S. armed forces around the world, including a promotional 45 that supported efforts to recruit much needed nurses.
Our resident Rockologist Ken Deutsch continues his conversation with Connie Francis that began on our prior episode – “Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll” show #71. She’ll provide more insights on the stories we’re telling and talk about her latest book. Yes, she’s an accomplished author, too. Here it all here.
