It was amazing to work with Bob Rosenberg, a very talented artist who also had a great sense of what played well on the radio. His "mixes" for Hot 105 were always at the top of every research list, and continued to be for years later at Power 96. With his "Will to Power" music, but before that, with his song mixes, Bob left a major, indelible stamp on South Florida's radio and music scene. BTW, "Dreamin'" would have been a #1 national hit if CBS hadn't blown the promotion of it. Huge, memorable record. Bill Tanner
On the same forum, Jeff Lemlich of Limestone Records states:
Dreamin'" may have been the biggest local record of all-time -- and that includes all the great 1965-70 local hits such as "Girl I Got News For You" (1 week at #1) and "Stoned Cowboy" (3 weeks at #1). Certainly it's the only one that was designated as the #1 song of the year on a year-end survey. Bob, I know the record was dedicated to Robin. . . but did her tragedy also inspire the writing of the song? Jeff Lemlich http://www.limestonerecords.com
