    Hey PJ , by the way ,, I almost forgot ,,,, Back when Sam the Sham first started out , of course , everyone knew his real name was Sam Zamudio , but his VERY FIRST record he released , he called himself by some bounced off the wall name .. I'm trying to find out what that first "STAGE NAME" was . Do you by any chance know what it is ???? My brother and I are chompng at the bit to find out .. THANKS MUCH !!! CHEERS !!!!!

    Thanks PJ for the fast reply . Well , I guess I was ALMOST right on the Belmonts . Who'd a thought that it went the other way around ?? Neat tidbit of trivia !!! Ok , I have a 45 rpm here in my collection that just by accidently playing it and another record at the same time , I found out who the duo was . The record was on the DINGO label and the duo called themselves "MEEP MEEP & THE ROADRUNNER " , can you guess who they not too later ended up calling themselves ??? This is fun trivia .

    In this case it went the other way around. Dion went solo and The Belmonts were recording without him. As a matter of fact the Belmonts owned the Sabina label

    is this by any chance the same BELMONTS that later on got together with DION and became DION & THE BELMONTS ????

    CBS FM was the station that regularly played 50s and 60s. Doo Wop Shop was the one show to listen to on Sunday nights for 4 straight hours, then down to 3 hours, and then off the air . When I go back up NY, I do not even turn the station on for what they did to their loyal listeners. What a shame.

    Yeah, it doesn't reach where I am now in eastern Connecticut, but whenever I get into its range, it's really just a bunch of junk. But, since you weren't yet around, can you imagine how cool it was in, say 1973, when it was playing just stuff from the '50s and '60s all day long? I mean, I just had it on all the time.

    I heard you loud and clear. I grew up in Jersey so CBS FM is, or should I say was a staple here. Now they might as well rebrand themselves as a light rock station. What a shame

    Yeah, I seem to be getting less young all the time. Don't know how that works. By the way, I meant CBS FM.

    Looks like they're imitating Dion's records with the Del Satins/

    I don't recall hearing it on WCBS, but I was born in 1980 so I guess I missed it in the 70's lol

  • PJDooWop

    I never heard it. I'll have to check that out

    Interesting. Australia had their own doo wop groups. I've only been able to get my hands on a record by The Moonlighters but apparently there were a handful of groups from Australia and OZ

    At this time (early 60's) it was all about dancing

    It certainly got play (at least on the metro NYC area) when it was out, and I remember hearing it in the '70s on WCBS, but it has been a while. Good tune.

    The Jeff Rowena Five also did a version of this song!

    It amazes me how many people missed it. They made a lot of these.. This was pressed on five different Sabina label variations. I believe this is the first pressing.
