The first song in this week's Double Doo Wop selection is from one of the first female Doo Wop groups. These talented girls now have a street named for them in the Bronx.
    Lou's second pick is from a legendary vocal group from Pittsburgh willing to go their "Lonely Way".
   Don't be lonely ... join us here at ISHBAH and reminisce about the days when all we needed was a great song to make our day.

    Thanks for joining us here this Summer for our series Champagne Manhattan with  DJ Arty Simon. Summer's over and we are going back to our roots with a Double Doo Wop we hope you enjoy.
     It's another Double helping of Doo Wop from two of the earliest Doo Wop groups. Both were formed in the mid 50's.  One from San Bernardino California and the other from Harlem in New York.   These groups helped to spread Doo Wop across America from sea to shining sea.

   Their classic 50s vocal harmonies & sound led straight to the coming soul era of music.  Lou covered one of these songs on his Roulette Records album.

    Here's our Double Doo Wop selection for ISHBAH this week. These two great groups set the pace for all the music that followed.

    We "Sincerely" believe that these songs are on the right track to Make You Sing Again.

    Sing some Doo Wop baby when you get the Blues.

    This is the country band that got Lou into country music in the first place. From the hills of Tennessee to the steel mills of Pittsburgh ...  Abby Neil and the Ranch Girls.

    Lou's path led him to the stage of The Grand Ole Opry  where he sang our second tune in his new Podcast.  Listen to it all here on ISBAH.  It's ten minutes well spent.

It SHOULD Have Been a HIT!
