The Young Rascals have today’s almost forgotten track

Despite the disrespectful “humourous” introduction by Alan King this performance of their debut single by The Young Rascals brings back tons of happy memories for me…one of the first American bands to crack the charts following the British Invasion, the band had a whack of great hits including a couple of Number Ones, but this track remains lodged in my mind as one of their greatest.


Greg Simpson is off this and next week. In the meantime, PSR will feature ‘The Best Of TAFT’


Greg Simpson


Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then.



His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
