At a BMI Awards dinner in London, Les and Gordon Mills Jr. were presented with an award celebrating over 4 million performances of “It’s Not Unusual” in the USA alone. This song has been hugely successful worldwide, with covers by Diana Ross and the Supremes, Marvin Gaye and Cher, to name but a few. According to the BMI website, 3 million plays represents 17 years continued plays, meaning that 4 million would represent over 20 years of continued plays… A mind-boggling thought!

Les provided the songs and musical score for the pilot of a new children’s animation series, called “The Pink Professor Rabbit”, written by Hazel A. Speed.
