Aw, wish I could be there! Best wishes to all performers and attendees for a magical time!

JoeNon Papa

I will be there! And maybe even have a Manhattan (or three) at PJ Clarke's, too.

Danne D

Not sure I can make in person but I will surely tune-in. As an aside to Gaylord - I cracked open your premium CD the other day and it is (naturally) fantastic!

what happened to Linda Jansen, the ORIGINAL LEAD SINGER OF THE ANGELS on 'TIL & "CRY BABY CRY" ?. It would be nice to give her recognition. She is out there on the Doo-wop circuit &
singing & looking better than ever ! I caught her at one of the shows, so I know. Give credit where
credit is due.

Linda Jansen is a wonderful talent and she was with The Angels, sisters and founders Barb and Jiggs for 1-2 years and sang lead on 'Til and Cry Baby Cry.She has her own show and we never know if we're booked together or not. We're happy to work together when producers book us that way. We're doing 2 of our other 4 chart hits which I sang lead on including My Boyfriend's Back which we recorded after Linda left the group. We consider Linda a friend and enjoy working with her when ever the situation come up.

Be sure to play some Clairette Clementino.

I wish I could have been there as the Girl Groups and singers were my favorite back then.Music was everything to me and made me happy.I still play many of them at 65 years old and collect 45's.I know you all had a great time and hope you will have another show that I can make it to.God bless each of you ladies and my heart will always be with you.

The show was ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!! It would be great if they could take it on the road but it may not generate the same level of interest that it did in NYC. I'd say that there was close to 5,000 people and it was standing room only. We love our NY ladies of song It was a celebration of the NYC girl group sound and a tribute to Ellie Greenwich. Other cities like L.A., Detroit and Chicago had their own girls and sound so they may not be as interested. It's worth a try though.

Rock"n!!!! Man...that was a great show!! What a treat to hear unsung brill build. girls like Beverly Warren (she blew me away). with her 1965 release of "Let me get close to you" And it goes without mention the stars: Lesley Gore, Ronnie Spector, LaLa....on and on....The Ellie tribute was sublime!!! Loved it...Loved it!!

Will the broadcast of the show be archived here? I did subsequently get to hear portions of it (including the interviews) and really enjoyed it. One major correction is in order. There was a segment featuring Murray the K which included his legendary legendary "Submarine Race Watcher's Theme" from his heyday at 1010-WINS in New York City. The outro by the air personality said "Wow, Meusurry Talk, and ... the Angels ... that was, uh, Peggy and Jiggs." That was incorrect. It was NOT the Angels who sang it (although Peggy [Santiglia] was one of the singers). It was a different group, namely THE DELICATES, who were Murray the K's original "Dancing Girls." The Delicates consisted of Peggy along with Arleen Lanzotti and Denise Ferri. It was the Delicates who not only sang the "Submarine Race Watcher's Theme" and the famous "Meusurry" song but who also wrote them.

I realized later about my error. Thanks!

Gaylord - Thanks for the vintage recordings of Murray the "K" and his Dancing Girls: The Delicates. Wonderful to hear it all again. Murray was a great talent, a real trooper; always "on with the show" now matter what was plaguing him personally (I believe the oxygen tank was necessary because Murray was suffering from a physical ailment at the time - not simply because he was some "crazy" kinda guy.)What can you say about The Delicates: the New Jersey girl group who wrote and sang their own music and much of what defined Murray the 'K' as a disc jockey. They are loved by many. And thanks to the ever amazingly accurate Ronnie Allen (our favorite music detective)for the Delicates/Angels correction. I dig the respect Ronnie demonstrates for every music maker and listener by going the extra mile in investigation and discovery. The music of the 50's - 60'(as well as all of the past) is of infinite global interest now. What an opportunity for many of the talents from those golden years who were not in the forefront of the industry to finally receive the recognition they deserve. Credit needs to be given where it is due not elsewhere. Unfortunately, some of the facts of the past get mixed in with fiction by those who ought to know better. Fortunately for us there are still many around who were there and care enough to clear up the misquotes. The history of music is as important as any history and it needs to be factual. Thanks to all who participated in making the music of that early rock n roll era what it was and is. And thanks to those who work at getting the record straight for the sake of all the talent who took part and their beloved fans! Let's not be sloppy with a golden past so many hold so dear.

Just saw this now,sounds awesome!! Wish I was there. sigh
