At the peak of his career Lee, pictured above, had eight Top 100 singles, including three Top 20s with hits such as Starlight Star Bright, I Found a New Love and Aint It So.
Over the years he has appeared on some of the great music shows on Australian TV, including Bandstand and Six O’clock Rock.
In the 1960s Lee toured the UK and the USA, before staying a while writing and recording in America.
In 1961 he was awarded the Golden Mike Award as Australia’s most popular recording star.
Lee has released more than 20 CDs and is still performing and recording.
At 10.15am tomorrow [Wednesday, May 29], the Aussie music legend that is Lonnie Lee will be in Campbelltown to appear live on Radio 100.3FM, the Macarthur community station.
Lee will be a guest of radio presenter Trevar Langlands on his regular Arts and Entertainment show, which sounds like perfect mid morning listening.
Also on tomorrow’s Arts and Entertainment show will be veteran Campbelltown news man Eric Kontos, who these days is behind the online news service you are reading this on, the South West Voice in Macarthur.
He and Trevar will discuss the stories behind the news and indeed the story behind the Voice.
Eric Kontos is scheduled to appear on Radio 100.3FM at around 11.15am, right after Trevar’s chat with the music legend Lonnie Lee.
