Tonight on "If music Could Talk" (wrir 97.3 FM), Bob Campbell (aka Dean McNew), will make his second appearance on Richmond Independent Radio featuring live recordings (1976!) of his band- Dean McNew and Country Gold-- Live at the Silver Saddle in Des Moines, Iowa.. These performances were recorded on a second hand reel to reel machine and sat in a drawer, untouched, for 30 years. The fact that they can now be heard again after all these years is a true miracle. This is REAL country music with lots of soul and a little Rock n Roll. Dean's band, Country Gold, was popular not only among young couples who wanted to dance but also truck drivers for miles around who would pack the house every night at Silver Saddle just to hear Dean and the boys play. Bob's CD, "Bob Campbell LIVE" was released this past year and ALL of the proceeds have gone to fight Breast Cancer and provide free mamograms to people who cant afford the tests-- Breast Cancer claimed the life of his dear Aunt, Malinda Lou Campbell. And right now, nothing means more to Bob than to be able to dedicate these recordings to his Aunt & donate the proceeds to help fight Breast Cancer.
You can find his CD here
