Kenny Vance and Dennis Elsas

In 1975 I received a record at WNEW-FM that I immediately fell in love with. It was "Looking For an Echo" by Kenny Vance—a track off his first solo album, Vance 32, which paid tribute to the doo-wop era but with a contemporary sound. I didn't know much about Kenny's background other than he had been part of a very successful '60s group, Jay & The Americans.
