Remember the Del Vikings? They were noted for being one of the few racially integrated musical groups to attain success in the 1950's. The group was formed in 1955 by Clarence E. Quick, Kripp Johnson, Don Jackson, Samuel Paterson, and Bernard Robertson, who were all enlisted in the USAF and stationed in Pittsburgh PA. Because all of the members were in the service, they constantly ran the risk of being disrupted by members being stationed in other places. This happened soon after the group's forming when Paterson and Robertson were sent to Germany. They were replaced by baritone David Lerchey, the group's first white member, and tenor Norman Wright. Originally signed to Fee Bee Records (1957), their first hit came in 1957, with the Wright-led 'Come Go with Me'. Soon after, Jackson was out, and was replaced by Gus Backus, the group's second white member. The group quickly found itself in greater demand following the release of 'Come Go with Me', which propelled the group into the Top 10 on Billboard's Top 100.
They split up in 1965, but were back in 1970 with a near original lineup, Clarence Quick, Kripp Johnson, Norman Wright, Dave Lerchey, and William Blakely. Although a couple of members died over the years, the Del Vikings were featured on the PBS special KPBS Doo Wop Show in 1999, which is when this performance was filmed.

Actor Ivan Dixon, who brought the problems and promise of contemporary blacks to life in the film "Nothing But a Man" and portrayed the levelheaded POW Kinchloe in TV's "Hogan's Heroes," has died. He was 76.
Dixon died Sunday at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte after a hemorrhage, said his daughter, Doris Nomathande Dixon of Charlotte. He had suffered complications from kidney failure, she said.
Dixon, who also directed scores of television shows, began his acting career in the late 1950s. He appeared on Broadway in William Saroyan's 1957 "The Cave Dwellers" and in playwright Lorraine Hansberry's groundbreaking 1959 drama of black life, "A Raisin in the Sun." In the latter, he played a Nigerian student visiting the United States, a role he repeated in the film version.
While not a hit, the 1964 "Nothing But a Man," in which Dixon co-starred with Abbey Lincoln, also drew praise as a rare, early effort to bring the lives of black Americans to the big screen.
