The "In" Sound With Harry Harrison


Tommy James - Mirage (mp3)

In the mid 1960's, Harry Harrison had a weekly radio spot where he asked fans what they thought the next hit would be.  He conducted brief interviews with the band, played the selected song and plugged the army.   I wonder how many of these are out there.

Oh wow... This is an awesome blast from the past! Too bad it doesn't have the "Hah-REE Har-iss-son" jingle, but hearing that voice? Great stuff.
Thanks!

I do know that "Sillouettes" put a LP out of Brother John Rydgren, which is excellent (If you want, lemme know), but Didn't know about this or other DJ's having releases...
Thanx!

Thanks, Timmy. The Sillouettes lp can be found on the FMU blog.
