Good Morning Everyone!
Can't believe it's already the 10th of July. I know that because I have only a few firecrackers left. Seriously though, cherry bombs and bottle rockets are now a permanent part of my past! I'm trying to save what little hearing I have left so I'll hear Joan when she tells me where I put the car keys.
This week starts the new format, posting our weekly release on the Turntable for those who aren't keeping their email in order. If we don't like it on the Turntable we can make changes later. Today begins the new "workout series" of 50's music. You may not be able to tell the difference but be assured, EVERY SONG is a jewel.
"The Great Pretender" is a popular song recorded by The Platters, with Tony Williams on lead vocals, and released as a single on November 3, 1955. The words and music were created by Buck Ram, the Platters' manager and producer who was a successful songwriter before moving into producing and management. "The Great Pretender" reached the number one position on both the R&B and pop charts in 1956. It also reached the UK charts peaking at number 5.
Till Next Week
