Posted in 101 #1 Song of The Day

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group that lost its name to Paul Revere and the Raiders so they reverted to something they had used when they were barely in their teens.

They took that name from a song they used to sing but a group of record promoters liked the band but hated the name so eventually they decided to call themselves Rick and the Raiders.  They did proms, sock hops and local clubs and eventually did some back up work for the Stangeloves who recommended them to one of the founders of Bang records who had a song that needed a group.  They got together and released the song which would arrive at number one on October 2, 1965.  But this was the same time that Paul Revere and the Raiders was on the rise so they were told to come up with something new.  Instead they came up with something old – their original name – The McCoys – Hang on Sloopy
