Extra Gold Radio will start broadcasting a weekly Jim Reeves program.
More info on you can re-listen to all Jim Reeves broadcast programs Yesterday, May 17, The Nashville Tennessean published an article about 80 year old bass player Billy Harlan.

Issue # 149 of the fan club magazine has been put on the mail yesterday.
The magazine features articles about the 60th anniversary of the release of the song "Four Walls", the 1958 Cancer Crusade episode of the ABN THE JIM REEVES SHOW, aired after the regular live program had been cancelled, and about the release of a 4 DVD set of "THE JIMMY DEAN SHOW" and the episode in which Jim Reeves performed a few weeks before his death.
Pat realised he had to continue with the formula and his next pick was "You're The Only Good Thing" which rode the charts for 19 weeks and went to number 17 in November 1961.
Due to Pat's selections, Jims records not only frequently entered the charts in Britain, but also in the rest of Europe. One could pick KIMN hit Pade surveys at Downtown Woolworth, Villa Music, Woolco, or anywhere fine 45's were sold.
It will be broadcast on Fridays from - hours European Central Time.

One title is "The missing Link", in his own words: "The early trouble I went through to write "Mexican Joe" and eventually how it got to Jim, not in any books because I lived it..", and a book on "Fabor Robinson and how he made Jim and disrupted the entire city music industry..." Mitchell didnt mention a publication date yet.
In the 1970s John Rex performed quite a few times in Great Britain and even had a fan club, run by Mrs. Unfortunately for his British fans, John Rex has not performed in Great Britain for many years.
The female singer who accompanied him is probably his wife, Mary. The picture quality of this kinescope recording is excellent, much better than of the VHS tape copy which is circulating among fans for many years.
