The 101 # 1 Song of the Day was the result of something that happened at Summer Camp. What was that?
Two of the founding members of today’s featured group actually met at summer camp seven years earlier. A few months later they formed a quartet called the Latineers. In April 1963 they appeared on a talent show sponsored by a Philadelphia radio station. A label executive heard the group and signed them to Parkway records, the same label that featured Chubby Checker. They wrote and recorded a song but something was missing. When the sounds of birds chirping and waves rolling in were added to some finger snapping they knew they had a hit record – It was number one on August 5, 1963 for the now renamed, “The Tymes” – So Much in Love.
