Harold Lloyd Jenkins (September 1, 1933 – June 5, 1993), better known by his stage name Conway Twitty, was an American country music singer and songwriter. He also had success in the rock and roll, R&B, and pop genres. From 1971 to 1976, Twitty received a string of Country Music Association awards. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. When “It’s Only Make Believe” was first released, because of vocal similarities, many listeners assumed that the song was actually recorded by Elvis Presley, using “Conway Twitty” as a pseudonym. Twitty would go on to enjoy rock-and-roll success with songs including “Danny Boy” (Pop number 10) and “Lonely Blue Boy” (Pop number 6). “Lonely Blue Boy”, originally titled “Danny”, was recorded by Presley for the film King Creole but was not used in the soundtrack. Conway had 8 big hits on Australian charts from 1958 to 1973, his biggest hit being Mona Lisa in 1959.

Ron will play some of Conway Twitty’s hits during the show along with more 1950s & 60s JUKEBOX HITS, featuring the big names of the Billboard Hot 100 and our own early Top 40 charts.
