One of the biggest hitmakers of the ’60s, Tommy James, will launch his own weekly radio show, “Getting’ Together With Tommy James,” Feb. 4 from 5 to 8 p.m. on SiriusXM‘s ’60s on 6 channel.
According to a press release, the show will feature “Tommy playing ‘60s hits and some eclectic surprises too, while sharing his personal memories of the stars and the music of the era.”
James, a longtime Cedar Grove resident, was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame last year.
As the frontman of The Shondells and as a solo artist, James had eight Top 10 hits in the ’60s and the early ’70s: “Hanky Panky,” “I Think We’re Alone Now,” “Mirage,” “Mony Mony,” “Crimson and Clover,” “Sweet Cherry Wine,” “Crystal Blue Persuasion” and “Draggin’ the Line.”
