The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group whose main guys grew up together in California and started a band called the Crossfires.  One of
them was little more than a roadie when they started out. 

The boyhood friends were Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman.  That relationship got Mark into the band – in a way – despite the fact he couldn’t really do anything musically related.  He mostly set up equipment and during gigs would play the tambourine.  Eventually he got tired of his lowly status so he bought an alto sax and learned how to play it.  In time they drew the attention of a couple of record distributors who were looking for talent for their new label – White Whale.  They liked the group but rejected the name, Crossfires.  Influenced by many British groups, especially the Zombies, they decided on a new name and where on their way.  Their sixth chart hit was number one in America on March 25, 1967 for the Turtles (Happy Together)
