A Sixties protest song hits the top despite being banned on radio
A singer from Mission, BC, claims the song of the summer
And the oldest artist to have an album debut at #1.
Listen to the stories behind these — and more — seminal musical events on Cashbox Radio.
Read Scott’s article on the origins of the Musical Milestones in Cashbox Magazine.Cass Elliot plays musical matchmaker … the things some writers will do to get a little inspiration … a songwriter is embarrassed to have written a #1 hit … Bryan Adams refuses to sing to lutes and pipes … and three Beatle Milestones, plus one inspired by the Fab Four.
Scott has been singing for most of his life: primarily on stage but also on television. radio, and in concert. He has made two recordings: a self-titled album of melodies from the Great American Songbook featuring a full orchestra; and a single, Someone I Don’t Even Know, a song he wrote about a woman he met and fell in love with during a theatre production.
