England’s “Shindig!” magazine features a good informative article by Scott Paton about JAN & DEAN’s transitional period following Jan Berry’s life-changing 1966 car accident, covering the duo’s separate album projects “SAVE FOR A RAINY DAY” (Dean) and “CARNIVAL OF SOUND” (Jan), 1966-1968 — (Issue #62, 2017). Scott knew Jan in the late 1970s and worked for Casey Kasem’s "American Top Forty." Scott contributed to, and is quoted in, “THE JAN & DEAN RECORD,” by Mark A. Moore. Check out Scott’s article, and peruse “Shindig!” further to read Pat Curran’s interview with Moore (2010).

Hi Mark

I just wondered how the biography was going?

All the best as always from the UK.

Thanks Surferbee. It's going very well, but I had to get the date for delivering the manuscript pushed back until 2019. Too much other stuff going on. I'll post updates as things develop.

I think Honolulu Lulu was very deserving of a top 10 hit. The production is really strong. Of course, Sidewalk Surfin was strong as well

Just emailed my local radio station bbc somerset, and asked them to play frosty the snowman. How about we all email your local radio station and ask for frosty the snowman played.

  "Sidewalk Surfin'" is one of the best J&D singles.  The only reason "Honolulu Lulu" did better is because it was the follow up to a Number One smash - the world was waiting for it.
