As long as I have been in radio I still get request for songs I’m not familiar with. Last week I got a request from a young lady for a song titled “Rockin Charlie”! She said it in a way that made me think she was kidding around. (My name is Charles)

Today a couple of weeks later she calls again to remind me that she had requested “Rockin Charlie” by the Bobby Peterson Quintet. When she called before she didn’t mention the artist. Again I thought she was joking.

I had to see if the song really existed. I couldn’t believe it! “Rockin Charlie” by the Bobby Peterson Quintet really does exist. She stated that “Rockin Charlie” was the greatest skating song ever released. You decide.
