Mercy mercy me! This
here's Wolfman Jack, baby, sittin' in for my good friend Shady Del Knight here at the greatest little station
in the nation, SDMM.
I'm your doctor of love and I got the cure you're looking for, the best oldies you ever heard plus the best oldies
you never heard!
attention to these songs,
baby, or the Wolfman's
These girls played the Peppermint Lounge, were the first all female rock band signed to a major record label and had an international following.
You got the Wolfman
on SDMM, baby, and
I'm gonna teach you
a lesson. In 1961 the Students had a top 30 R&B hit with this next classic doo-wop ballad.
In 1965 soul thrush Naomi Wilson had a swing and a miss with a cool cover. Yes, gracious... "I'm So Young."
All you Dell Vikings and Dellettes put your ears to the radio and listen to the Wolfman. In the early 70s, Los Angeles soul sister Carolyn Willis was a member of The Honey Cone, the girl group that gave us "Want Ads." A few years earlier she sang lead with the Sweethearts who sounded a lot like the Supremes on this next number. Stop in the name of love and think it over. It's a no more tears formula for your baby from Wolfman Jack and the Sweethearts!
(March 1966, uncharted)
I'm sure you remember the Angels and their hit "My Boyfriend's Back. When the Angels left Smash Records they temporarily lost the legal right to record under that name.
Peggy Santiglia took a leave of absence, Toni Mason replaced her as lead singer and the girls changed their name to The Halos. Angels... Halos... whatever their name they still sounded heavenly and that's a fact
or my name ain't Wolfman Jack!
This one reminds me of "Lovers Who Wander" by Dion. Lo and behold it's Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys and three of his friends who made a 45 as the Survivors.
Brian's bunch used the melody of the Beach Boys ditty "Car Crazy Cutie," changed the lyrics and sang about a teen queen named Pamela Jean!
