Hi, I’m Gene Stevens – here’s what’s coming up on ‘Vintage Favourites’.
The biggest pop star of the second half of the 20th century was Elvis Presley, and the biggest pop star of the first half, was Bing Crosby. Both died within months of each other in 1977.
Next week’s the 40th anniversary of Bing Crosby’s death, and I’ll salute the original crooner with some of his most famous songs; then, tip the fedora to some of Canada’s all-time best crooners too.
Plus a Thanksgiving Day Triple Play of ‘thank you’ songs, and remembering Gordon Lightfoot’s first live album, released this month in 1969. That’ll be a ‘Sunday Concert’ and so much more, this Sunday on Vintage Favourites at 2, from Zoomer Radio.
