Welcome to the website of Singer-Actor-Voice Specialist Scott Walker
Scott chronicles significant anniversaries in the history of popular music with his new radio show, The Musical Milestones.
Based on his popular CBC Radio feature, The Musical Almanac, The Musical Milestones can be heard on Cashbox Radio.
On this edition – October – Part One:
The early days of a musical powerhouse and the artists behind it
A couple of stories of family musical influence
When times were so conservative that even an Everly Brothers record could cause controversy
How Michael Jackson couldn’t avoid controversy; even in death
How an ‘obnoxious jerk’ named Bob Dylan inspired a Canadian folk classic
How Neil Diamond’s first #1 hit was inspired by a visit to Canada
The 60th anniversary of a release that would change history
And two of the most-recorded songs of all time.
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.

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.
