  I would love to find Ron Ellis. I had the pleasure of hanging out with Ron Ellis who sang vocals at the Pines Club with Shirley Kimberly (69-70). Doug Tyrell was the guru for The Pacemakers at the time. Bob Antilla, Big Milt, Derek Newman were memorable band members. I remember Ron would get down on his knees to pray-sing "Stormy Monday'. Ron and I were very close and dated the Burns sisters from Eagel River-Anchorage. Pappy Burns owned the motorcycle-snowmobile dealership. www.harkraderX.com

  Does anyone know how I can contact Denise Johnson who sang with Peter Dana? We were friends when I was stationed in Anchorage from 1971-73.

  Does anyone know where I can find old recordings (if they exist) of the Northwinds broadcasts on KHAR from back in the 1960's or 1970's?

  "My best musician buddy, & close friend, Milton Walton, 86, passed away on August 24, 2013 at his home in Anchorage. He was the "best of the best" saxaphone/singer/frontman/sideman/harmonizer/showman, that anyone could wish for. In his past, He grew up with & worked with Ray Charles & Quincy Jones, amongst his years of playing music. I had the privilege of working with him during my music experience in Anchorage, in the 70s, along with Derek Newman, a super keyboard specialist.
Big Milt was born on January 11, 1927 in Wichita Falls, TX. Walton became an Alaska resident in the year 1964 and stayed a resident for 48 years.
He will be missed by all, I'm sure!
Bryan Roussell"

  Most of the bands on this site are local bands, but sorry, no, I didn't ever record the Versatiles.

  Did you happen to record any local bands? Am looking for music by a band that played at the Green Dragon and then at Ron Don's in the late 60's to mid 70's. The band's name was The Versatiles and the band members were Brian, Bobby, Arley and Billy.
