R&SRNR_155 – “THE TOP 40 LOST HITS OF 1966”

This episode spotlights The Top 40 Lost Hits Of 1966. It was a vintage year for music, including some great records you never seem to hear on the radio, or the satellite or on anyone’s live stream anymore.

Featured artists include a British band who named themselves after an American rock and roll icon. We’ll also spotlight a dynamic singer known as “Mr. Excitement” as well as the “Black Elvis.” And we’ll demonstrate how some genuine, original hit 45s by two selected acts are probably not the versions contained on some of the greatest hits collections for these artists that are available on CDs or online downloads.

1966 also was a vintage year for network television – including the debut of the only prime time action-adventure series ever with first run episodes broadcast two nights every week. Our resident Rockologist, Ken Deutsch, will be along to cover that plus some other news worth noting from that memorable year.

And Ken will join Radio Dave as we present more of the greatest rock and roll stories on record. Hear it all here.
