EAST RUTHERFORD – Legendary radio personality Bruce Morrow will be hosting “Cousin Brucie’s First Annual Palisades Park Reunion” at State Fair Meadowlands on Saturday, June 22 at 7 p.m. The evening will include performances broadcast live on SiriusXM’s ‘60s on 6 channel, from artists who entertained audiences at Palisades Amusement Park in the 1960s, including Neil Sedaka, Lesley Gore, The Crests, Bobby Lewis, Vito Picone & The Elegants, Randy & The Rainbows, Ronnie Spector and others.
“Cousin Brucie brought some of the biggest names in rock ‘n’ roll to Palisades Park in the ‘60s. We are honored to be bringing many of the artists together again at State Fair Meadowlands this summer, to remember the well-loved Palisades Park, and also to pay tribute to those artists who defined rock ‘n’ roll at a dynamic time in music history,” said Michele Tartaglione, Managing Director of State Fair Meadowlands.
“I have been waiting for this event to happen for several decades,” said Morrow. “Palisades Park was more than a Cousin Brucie showcase for the great artists of the day; it was literally an emotional experience for the tens of thousands of my listeners who attended these unforgettable shows. Great talent appeared with me at Palisades, many of whom made their debut on stage at these shows. Palisades Park will always be part of our cultural experience. Here we were happy, here we grew. So come on over!”
Cousin Brucie hosts Cruisin’ With Cousin Brucie on Wednesdays at 5:00 pm ET and Cousin Brucie’s Saturday Rock and Roll Party on Saturdays at 8:00 pm ET on ’60 on 6, via satellite on channel 6, and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com.
