Dennis Diken's avatar View Dennis Diken's profile Favoriting

Step into Denny’s Den to give yourself a little lift as you make your way through the busy day. Or take a break and make the world go away for a while. Dig on platters a-plenty, from The Chantels to Del Shannon, The Small Faces to Jimmy Reed. And so much more. Maybe some Basie and Kenton? Relax. You’ve earned it!

One thing I love about this Hal B. album is how close mic'd his drums are compared to, for example, Spector-esque stuff. You can really hear the detail in his playing!

At that time Wayne's show stated with the 2001 theme - then a huge spaceship landing on stage, then a ramp comes out of the spaceship, and a spaceman walks down the ramp, then there's an explosion - and when the smoke clears guess who is standing where the space man was... (wait for it)... WAYNE NEWTON!

And then he sings Elvis' arrangement of "Promised Land."

At least that's how I remember it.

Interesting playlist. It's from the same era as Rex plays, and they're both popular music, but they're very different types.
