RARE & SCRATCHY ROCK 'N ROLL _085 – THE COMPLETE HIT SINGLES HISTORY OF PAUL ANKA - PART 2

This is the second of two episodes saluting one of the most successful and enduring singer/songwriters in rock and pop music history. His recordings span more than seven decades. He’s also composed hit records for several other artists, including Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones, and the 5th Dimension. He’s Paul Anka.

During the course of our Paul Anka retrospective, we’ll sample all of his hit singles, plus the original versions by artists who inspired him. Then you’ll hear the charted 45 RPM remakes of his hits by other singers. And we’ll revisit hits he wrote expressly for other performers.

This “Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll” edition spotlights Paul Anka’s special connections with Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, and Michael Jackson. And our rockologist, Ken Deutsch presents more of his personal interview with Paul Anka in which the artist sits next to Ken on his piano bench and sings a 1974 hit right in his hotel room!
