“Do You Remember – This Great KIMN Classic?”
(The above 10-inch acetate is a really goofy sets of commercial bits for Nabisco’s “Five Pack Salad Wafers” – recorded in Denver.
“H-U-R-T” from July, 1964 on KIMN Radio by Denny and Jay
Greeley, Colorado’s Denny & Jay were signed to Capitol Records but didn’t manage to chart with this local hit. Denny Rockwell continued on releasing three singles on the subsidiary label, Tower.

“All Over Again” from August, 1964 on KIMN Radio by Jill Jackson
Jill Jackson is “Paula” of Paul and Paula fame. “All Over Again” did not chart nationally. It was released in August of 1964.

“The Eskimo Song” from November, 1964 on KIMN Radio by Don Rutherford (and the Emotionals)
This is an obscure local single from Morey Bernstein’s Finer Arts record label located first in Los Angeles and then Denver. The single somehow also made it’s way onto the Australian label W.G. I wonder what became of The Emotionals?
“The Summer of ‘64” from November, 1964 on KIMN Radio by The Sophomores
This group released songs on several labels including Epic – all without success of any kind. Not certain if the guys shown below are the “Sound Stage 7” Sophomores or not. Here is a rather lengthy article about the Sophomores.
