Bob Oakley

Bob offers a performance packed with nostalgia based on memories of songs played on the radio during the 50's and 60's. Popular music back in the day included a lot of classi country music. Burl Ives, Jim Reeves, Hank Williams, Charley Pride and many others were performing on programmes that include Cliff and Elvis.  

Bob will also where appropriate deliver his own life story during which he recalls his boyhood years right through to today and his rediscovered Christian faith.
Now living in Long Buckby, Northamptonshire having retired from life as a publican Bob is returning to his first love, singing Classic Country Music with a smattering of 50's & 60's plus some Irish and Folk songs.
