  1. Such a great list as per norm. I love Jaye P Morgan’s voice. Is she the one that used to be a judge on the Gong Show? I also love the voice on the last song too.

    1. That’s her, the one who got fired for taking off her blouse while Gene Gene The Dancing Machine was doing his act. I don’t know why they were that upset: there wasn’t much to see…

  2. Love Earth Angel, don’t remember who did popular version. Love Mr. Sandman, one of the first songs I was aware of. I loved the Lennon sisters and Andrews sisters back when I was little. Sincerely is sincerely nice. Happy Tues.

    1. Was it KOKC at 1520 from Oklahoma City? It used to be KOMA. They did Top 40 in the ’60’s and ’70’s and switched to country in 1980. They’re news-talk now…

      1. Yup, it was KOMA. It was a great station, and you could hear it way up in northern Wyoming and deep into Texas and points between in the early 60s.
