RED ROBINSON'S RECORD TRACK
Hit Recorder Has
Another on Wax

by Red Robinson
Vancouver Sun Aug. 30, 1957
   Jimmy Morrison, the young lad who was spotlighted recently in this column, has just recorded a new release for London of Canada through Aragon Records.
   It's an old Hank Williams favorite done up with a brand new rock and roll beat.
   The record will be on the air in two days, and in the stores in 12 days.
   Jim is backed up again by another local rock group "The Sensational Stripes."
   These boys have also recorded two new songs.  They are originals written by Gerry Finder, a member of the group.
   The songs are called Boogie Beat and the flip is Hot Rod.  They will be released in conjunction with Jim's record.

PANDA FOR ELVIS
   Saturday, the biggest name in show business, Elvis Presley, will strum his guitar and shake his way into a two-and-a-half hour extravaganza at Empire Stadium.
 As MC of the show, it will be a pleasure to present Mr. Sideburns with the west coast's largest panda bear.  He has one of the world's largest collections of them.
   Saturday at 11:15 p.m. I will be staging an all-Elvis Presley show which will go on until I give up.  Listen in and hear all of Presley's releases.
   There will be record prizes for a lot of people and there will be a dozen open phone lines so that you can phone in for your favorite Presley selection.

MORE CHICKEN
   More chicken-type songs coming out.  The chicken, of course, is that new dance craze created in New York.
   Tuesday I received a long distance call from Frank Lasley of AMP 3 records in New York.  He was on my show for 25 minutes.  He predicted this song to climb to the top:  I'm Sitting on Top of the World, Jerry Mar, AMP 3 (Sparton).
   More predictions:
   Topsy Turvy, Benn Zeppa, Era.
   Zip Zip, Diamonds, Mercury.
