Legendary Pittsburgh DJ and dance promoter Bob Mack will be honored at the Harmar House in Cheswick on Saturday, April 25, 2015. Together with Porky Chedwick, Mad Mike Metrovich, and Terry Lee, Mack pioneered the playing of obscure, unknown records which became known as “Pittsburgh Oldies” more than 50 years ago.
If you own an original Roulette pressing of “Hanky Panky” by Tommy James and the Shondells, the biggest record that broke out nationally out of the Pittsburgh dance scene, you’ll see “Bob Mack presents” on the label. Mack is the one who found Tommy several years after “Hanky Panky” was originally issued and gave him his name and helped place the record with a national label.
