The CKWX Top Tens listed weekly in the Vancouver Province through most of 1957 and 1958 usually co-incided with the listings in CKWX's series of "unpublished" and "published" charts.  It is hoped that the missing published chart for this week will eventually be found.  For the time being the above top ten has been substituted. This particular top ten may have been from one of the very earliest surveys in the "Sensational Sixty" series.







Young Robin Luke
Will Sing in B.C.
New 'Dot' Records Discovery
Has White Rock Engagement

By RED ROBINSON
(Vancouver Sun Aug, 29, 1958)
   Today stars are born every day in the record capitals of the world, which includes Los Angeles, New York, Seattle and even Toronto.
   These areas have brought forth some of today's top entertainers.
   Toronto has produced Moe Koffman and the Four Lads.  Seattle has produced such greats as Bonnie Guitar, Pat Suzuki, and Jimmie Rodgers.  Los Angeles is responsible for a book full of big names.  One that I would like to bring out in this column is young Robin Luke, 16 years old, a youngster who was born in Los Angeles, thereby becoming a direct product of that city.
   He is currently living in Hawaii, where Susie Darling first took off like a sky rocket.  He was signed to Dot Records when two distributors from Dot heard him while vacationing in Hawaii.
   Robin wrote the song for his three-year-old sister, Susie.    Robin will fly from Hawaii to Los Angeles and then directly to Vancouver to appear with the Centennial Bandstand show for two engagements in White Rock and Bellingham.

FIRST TIME
   This is the first time a top star has ever visited the Pacific Northwest when his song was number one on all the national charts.
   He likes Rick Nelson and Elvis Presley and has a tendency to sing some of their top songs.  His writing ability is original and this in itself could spell continuous success for the future.
   It's not enough in this day and age to be able to sing but you must also have other talents.  Robin's big extra bonus feature is his writing ability.  He's a clean-cut youngster, and this will be his first visit north of Los Angeles.

THREE AT FAIR
This week a lot of things happened in the music world.  When I refer to the world of music that's how it's getting; for instance, Sarah Vaughn and Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman are currently at the Brussels Worlds Fair.  This is the first time Sarah and Ella have appeared together.
   Joni James leaves this week for a tour of U.S. Army bases in Manila, Honolulu.  Tokyo and other points in the Far East.
   And sad news from Minneapolis:  the great composer-director of world-famous voices, Walter Schuman, 44, died after a heart operation.  He was famous for his chorus and many Broadway scores and television theme such as "Dragnet," which, by the way, sold a million copies on Capitol with Ray Anthony's Orchestra doing the honors in 1954.

NEW RECORD
   In Memphis, Tenn., this week, the top country singer of the year, Johnny Cash, releases a new LP on Sun records called "Johnny Cash Sings "Hank Williams."  Johnny is riding high now with his recording of "Guess Things Happen That Way" and "The Way of a Woman in Love."
   In New York this week, the record switches continue as Don Cornell switches from Coral Records to Dot.  And at the same time in New York Chris Connor renewed her contract with Atlantic records.
   The top song on the world hit parade still is " Volare," with Domenico Modugno, and he is visiting deejays and appearing on TV shows.
   His son is already over the 2,000,000 mark in sales.
