Cousin Brucie To Host Palisade Park Reunion

SiriusXM Radio Monday announced that legendary radio personality Bruce Morrow will present an evening of live performances on Saturday, June 22 during "Cousin Brucie's First Annual Palisades Park Reunion."

Cousin Brucie made the announcement on his SiriusXM show Cousin Brucie's Saturday Rock and Roll Party on '60s on 6 on Saturday, June 1.

"I have been waiting for this event to happen for several decades," said Cousin Brucie.  "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!"

The event, broadcast live on SiriusXM's '60s on 6 channel beginning at 7:00 pm ET, will feature performances by Neil Sedaka, Lesley Gore, The Crests, Bobby Lewis, Vito Picone & The Elegants, Randy & The Rainbows, Ronnie Spector and others.

"Cousin Brucie's First Annual Palisades Park Reunion," held at State Fair Meadowlands in East Rutherford, New Jersey, will celebrate the historic amusement park and the shows that Brucie hosted there throughout the '60s. Wearing his famous leopard-skin suit, Brucie prowled the big stage at Palisades where thousands of Brucie fans enjoyed performances by the biggest names in rock 'n' roll history.

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.

  1. Looking forward to it - but it's not the first. Cousin Brucie hosted a Palisades Park reunion show at the meadowlands in the 80's (?). My wife & I were there as were my (now in their 30's) children. They met and spoke with Brucie that day. The headliner? Who else ... Freddie Cannon of course!
