EARTHWORKS ENTERTAINMENT has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire an interest in JOHN ROOK’s HIT PARADE HALL OF FAME, which recognizes the highly popular recording artist that have been virtually ignored by the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME.
"There are so many stars that have made major contributions from the '50s through the '80s who have never received the recognition they deserve," ROOK said. "Artists such as PAUL ANKA, TONY BENNETT, PAT BOONE, CHUBBY CHECKER, PETULA CLARK, NAT 'KING' COLE, PERRY COMO, TOM JONES, FRANKIE LAINE, BARRY MANILOW, DEAN MARTIN, AL MARTINO, JOHNNY MATHIS, MCGUIRE SISTERS, PATTI PAGE, NEIL DIAMOND, CONNIE FRANCIS, FRANK SINATRA, KAY STARR, BARBRA STREISAND, BOBBY VINTON and ANDY WILLIAMS have been inducted along with more than 100 others into the HIT PARADE HALL OF FAME."
"THE HIT PARADE HALL OF FAME was the idea that sparked the HIT PARADE RADIO format which we partnered with JOHN in last year," EARTHWORKS ENTERTAINMENT CEO STEVEN HUMPHRIES said. "HIT PARADE RADIO will play a major force in the promotion of the Hall Of Fame, and vice versa. We expect to finalize our agreement over the next several days."
JOHN ROOK will remain the operator and serve as President of THE HIT PARADE HALL OF FAME.
