Hi, I’m Gene Stevens with what’s coming up on the final ‘Vintage Favourites’ program of the year – our annual salute to those we’ve lost. It’s been another sad year when our youthful idols and once-mighty music icons passed away … some gently with the inexorable passage of time, others cruelly cut down by disease before their time.
Two legendary fathers of rock’n’roll – Chuck Berry and Fats Domino … a teenage idol, David Cassidy … rockers from Malcolm Young and Tom Petty to Gregg Allman and J. Geils … big band singer Bea Wain and orchestra leader Larry Elgart … The French Elvis Johnny Hallyday, The Rhinestone Cowboy Glen Campbell, and the Courageous Canadian Gord Downie …
Remembering them, and many more … ‘In Memoriam’ – this Sunday at 2, from Zoomer Radio.
