WHO PLAYS JIM REEVES MUSIC?

Don't worry fans. My Fan Forum is not going to be taken over by responses to the attention-seeking Peter Atkinson, who headlines his post "Peter Atkinson Is Back" upon resuming his Amazon carpet bombing campaign to interfere with Jim Reeves's CD releases and malign any fan who dares to challenge his lies. |
But since he is boasting of his return to Amazon (after being banned for 6 months for TOS violations), I think it's only appropriate to greet this spineless "man" with some fact-checking so fans are reminded of how recklessly and ruthlessly he lies habitually.
Atkinson has now combed the web for nasty comments about Daniel O'Donnell, describing him as "soulless," "camp," "non-talent," etc. What elitist bulls--t that is, to describe a true humanitarian who has raised millions for charity, sold 12 million records, sells out his shows, etc.
Also, Daniel honors Jim Reeves every chance he gets, with songs and TV specials. Atkinson asks why Larry would take offense at the mere suggestion that Daniel and his singing partner Mary Duff might accept money to endorse products. But as Larry pointed out, that is NOT all that Mr. Atkinson said. Instead, he claimed Daniel and Mary "endorse anything for money" and that's the only reason they loaned their good names and reputations to helping promote the 8 CD "The Great Jim Reeves" set. That's total rubbish.
In another one of his frantic posts, Mr. Atkinson has posted a very abbreviated list of Jim Reeves songs he claims the BBC played last year. This is obviously nonsense. He also has no way of knowing which version of those tracks was played. Also, many local stations affiliated with BBC have aired Jim's music, as Steve Brink of H&H Music could tell you, as he made extensive appearances on radio and TV shows all last summer in which Larry's overdubs got extensive airplay and attention.
I reminded Larry that he had showed me a survey of radio stations around the world that had been playing the 8 CD set, "The Great Jim Reeves," and reporting enthusiastic listener feedback.
I thought you might enjoy seeing it too. Remember this represents just the tip of the iceberg, and shows you how worldwide the outreach is for the very CDs that Atkinson pans:

There is something truly unhinged about anybody who would make a career out of excessively posting hostile comments about any other human being on the web. Over 81 pages on Amazon filled with Peter Atkinson's rants! What could motivate such a person to become so obsessed? This sort of behavior is repugnant to most Jim Reeves fans. I know, because we receive many messages from fans around the world telling us how much they enjoy the new Jim Reeves music Larry and crew have made available.
You need to show your support and post your comments on Amazon too, so this creep doesn't just take over the dialog. -- JULIE
