From the Land of Band Box Records

A Band Box Birthday!

January 26, 2014

BB 244

My daughter presented me with this Band Box birthday card this year, acknowledging my obsession with the independent Denver label from back in the day.  The reference to label #244 is not to Band Box release 244 an unreleased number by Nick Vitale and The Echoes “Goodnight Again” b/w “Stranger To Love” but instead to KIMN radio station DJ Jay Mack’s assistant on the air back in the 1960’s – Farley who would respond to Mack’s inquiries about a chart position obtained by any song he might spin – with “Two Hundred and Forty-Four!”.
