Listen for the replay to win tickets for two to see the Midtown Men – the orignal cast members from Jersey.  They’ll be at the Pan Am center 2/21/14.

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a guy who once sang with a group called the Gaytones.  But he was a member of another group when he recorded today’s song and that caused a problem. 

His name was Eugene Dixon and the later group to which he belonged was called the Dukays who were signed to Nat Records.  He’d written a song which the label didn’t like but an A & R man from another label heard it and thought it would be a big hit.  He was under contract – as a member of a group but not as an individual.  So he decided to go out on his own and the rejected song became number one on February 17, 1962 for the now renamed: Gene Chandler (Duke of Earl)
