Post 547 - Geoff Mullins with The Good Guys - Jingle Bell Rock - The Ringing Reindeer

 Geoff Mullins was a popular Good Guy DJ with Brisbane radio station 4IP (all 4IP DJs were known as Good Guys).  He was an influential member that helped forge 4IP’s ratings success through the early 1970s against bitter rival 4BC.  From Christmas 1971, the 4IP team released an annual Christmas song, which became a short-lived tradition over the next few years.  Geoff Mullins was the focus of these songs, and the main vocalist. Here to download is their first Christmas hit from 1971 “Jingle Bell Rock” b/w “The Ringing Reindeer” (101993) for RCA Records. The single was produced by Rocky Thomas and Brian Nicholls. “Jingle Bell Rock”, reached #1 on the 4IP chart.  Hopefully we may be able to track down the other Christmas singles the guys did in time. Thanks to Badger for the notes and record for this post made my job very easy.
