    Paul Anka and Tony Orlando on Juke Box Jury voted Gene Chandler’s Duke Of Earl a miss, but your Alley Cat disagrees.
    Alley Cat, 2 March 1962

    The Shadows went to No. l with ‘Wonderful Land’, written by Jerry Lordan: “I got the first phrase and it took me six months to get to the middle. I knew it had to have a second part and I couldn’t think of anything. The Shadows did it marvellously and Norrie Paramor added strings very sympathetically. I thought it was fantastic but it didn’t get a unanimous vote on Juke Box Jury.”

    Well, I ask you. ‘Juke Box Jury’ voted Eden Kane’s ‘Get Lost’ a miss.
    Alley Cat, 8 September 1961

    Eden Kane: “The record got exposure and that’s what mattered. It didn’t matter whether it was voted a hit or a miss as any publicity was good publicity in those days. The girl in Lady Antebellum was on one of those TV star search programmes and didn’t get through, so what do judges know?”
