We Are Family  YRT Best known for their work with Chic in the late '70s, siblings Debbie, Kim, Joni, and Kathy Sledge -- collectively Sister Sledge -- reached the height of their popularity during the disco era but had been recording since the early '70s and were still active in the late '90s. The group was formed in Philadelphia in 1971, when the sisters' ages ranged from 12 to 16, and they recorded their first single, "TIME WILL TELL," for the Philly-based Money Back label. (For the first few years, the group called itself Sisters Sledge.) In 1972, Sister Sledge signed with Atco and recorded its second single, "WEATHERMAN," which was followed by the Jackson 5-like "MAMA NEVER TOLD ME" in 1973... but i like this one, "WE ARE FAMILY," the best!!!

Gary US Bonds Quarter to Three This clip may have been from Bandstand, the year was 1961 and the music was wild! We were dong the "Mashed Potato", the "Pony", and the "Twist", and we were having a ball! Gary joined record producer Frank Guida's small Legrand record label and Guida changed his name to U.S. Bonds in hope that it would be confused with a public service announcement advertising the sale of government bonds and in that way get more airplay. Bonds' first hit was the song "New Orleans", which was followed by "Not Me", a flop for Bonds, but later a hit for The Orlons, and then by his only Number One hit, "Quarter To Three" in June 1961. Subsequent hits, under the name Gary U.S. Bonds, included "School Is Out", "Dear Lady Twist" and "Twist, Twist, Senora" in the early 1960s. In a 1963 tour of Europe, he headlined above The Beatles. While Gary U.S. Bonds is mostly known for achievements within rhythm and blues and rock and roll, he often transcends these genres, he has been nominated for the Country Music Association's "Songwriter of the Year distinction. He is also an honoree of the Rhythm & Blues Foundation. He was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame on 15 October 2006, and still performs onstage. "Quarter To Three" appears on The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list.

Nat King Cole Sings The Christmas Song This song was written in 1944 by Mel Tormé and Bob Wells. The Nat King Cole Trio first recorded it in 1946. At Cole's request, and over the objections of his label, Capitol Records, a second recording was made the same year using a small string section, this version became a huge hit on both the pop and R&B charts. Cole re-recorded the song in 1953 and again in 1961, using the same arrangement with a full orchestra. Mel Tormé himself eventually recorded his own version in 1965. However, the 1961 recording by Cole is generally regarded as definitive and continues to receive considerable radio airplay each holiday season. Cole's version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1974.

Jingle Bell Rock  Bobby Helms This became a Christmas classic after it was first released in 1957, and has received frequent airplay every Christmas since then. It has gone on to sell 100 million copies. This version was re-recorded by him in 1965 and yet again in 1967 on different labels. Then in 1970 he recorded an entire album titled 'Jingle Bell Rock". In 1983 he was back in the recording studio and released his last recording of this song on the Black Rose label.

RAINY NIGHT IN GEORGIA Brook Benton In 1969, after several years without a major hit, Brook Benton signed to a new record label, Cotillion Records, a subsidiary of Atlantic Records. Brought to the attention of producer Jerry Wexler, Benton recorded this song. Taken from his come-back album, 'Brook Benton Today', the melancholy song became an instant hit. In the spring of 1970, it topped the Billboard Magazine Black Singles chart. It also reached #4 on the Pop Singles and #2 on the Adult Contemporary charts, respectively. It was also #498 on the List of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. This performance was taped live in 1982.

The Birdwatchers from Miami 60s Finally I found a clip from my high school days in Miami from 1966! The Birdwatchers were a garage rock-pop band in the Miami area. They dabbled with an Everly Brothers sound in their early career (1964), even releasing a version of "Wake Up Little Susie" on a local Florida label. In 1966, the band released a clutch of garage-pop 45s, including this one called, 'Girl I Got News for You'. I don't think they ever got much further than this, even though they did have an appearance on Hullabaloo.

Miller Beer Commercial This commercial probably dates from the early 1960s. Note that the Miller label hasn't changed since then. Also note that the actors don't drink the beer. (I've never understood the logic behind that broadcast regulation.)

Look Homeward Angel Does anyone else remember this wonderful song? I loved all these tearjerkers...still do. The Monarchs were a very popular local group that traveled extensively to promote their records. They appeared on the Alan Freed TV show and appeared in concert with national groups such as The Beach Boys, The Four Seasons, Glen Campbell and Del Shannon to name a few. The group members were Leon Middleton, Dusty Miller, Ernie Donnell, Butch Snider, Mike Gibson, Jim Wells, Louie Lange and Bob Lange. "Look Homeward Angel" was released in January 1964 on the Soundstage 7 label.
