Golden Hits Radio's Everything Oldies.....Where Oldies news comes first!

Recording studio janitor - Davy Jones (of The Monkees), Ben E. King, or Harry Wayne Casey (of K.C. and The Sunshine Band)? 

Hospital orderly - Paul Simon, Percy Sledge, or James Brown

Truck driver - Elvis Presley, Fabian, or Dion
