Post 660 - Paul Walden - Penny Christmas Card - That's What I See In You

Paul Walden was signed by HMV in 1958, and with his deep, rich, resonant voice and smooth good looks, boyish charm and crowd-pleasing personality soon found himself with a string of radio hits and busy performing schedule. In 1959 he headed to London where he sang with the BBC Light Orchestra, was resident entertainer at the Down Under Club, and acted in several films. In the early Sixties he was home again, and starring in TVNZ’s first entertainment series After Dark. He also did radio shows on the YA network and continued releasing singles and albums and did several legendary tours organised by Joe Brown (crowd-pleasing concerts that also starred Howard Morrison, Peter Posa, John Hore and the Quin Tikis). In December 1965 Paul released a Christmas single called “Penny Christmas Card” b/w “That’s What I See In You” (HR-254) released on HMV Records. Flac
