The Good Old Days of Rock n Roll

The Good Old Days of Rock n Roll

- Presented by BOB MCKINNON -

Iconic TV shows like Johnny O’Keefe’s Six O’Clock Rock and Brian Henderson’s Bandstand saw the birth of a generation of talented performers and recording stars. Now, re-live all the fabulous original hits from the hitmakers themselves with THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF ROCK ’N’ ROLL.

At just 14 years old Little Pattie topped the charts in 1963 with her double-A sided debut He's My Blonde Headed, Stompie Wompie, Real Gone Surfer Boy / Stompin'.  Further hits included We're Gonna Have a Party Tonight (#18 in March 1965), Pushin' a Good Thing Too Far (#28 in March 1965) and Dance Puppet Dance (#9 in October 1965).  

New Zealand born superstar and Queen of the Mods Dinah Lee burst onto the scene with hits such as Don’t You Know Yockomo, Reet Petite and Do the Blue Beat. Dinah is widely acknowledged as New Zealand’s greatest musical import to Australia. 

Dubbed by Johnny O’Keefe as Australia’s King of Country Rock Jade Hurley OAM holds the unique record that every album he has released has achieved Gold, Platinum or Double Platinum status in both Australia and New Zealand.

Australian Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Lucky Starr is a pioneer singer, guitarist and television presenter. His most popular single, I've Been Everywhere, appeared in early 1962 and peaked at number one.

Digger Revell pioneered Rock ’n’ Roll in Australia. He has performed with some of the greats, including Chubby Checker, Bobby Rydell and Johnny O’Keefe.

 THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF ROCK ’N’ ROLL is no tribute concert - this is the real deal!
