Truly Judy’s Uncommon Oldies – The Liverpool Set – “Oh Gee Girl”
This week’s edition of “Uncommon Oldies” takes us to radio station WOKY 920 AM, March 1966, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The Liverpool Set’s name showed that they were obviously influenced by the Great Britain Merseybeat sound. One of the members was from Newark, England, but the others were from Toronto, Canada. Their first single took them into the Canadian Top 20.
One of the members of The Liverpool Set was previously in The Mynah Birds. Another member would go on to be in the Townsmen after leaving this band.
“Oh Gee Girl” hit #35 on the WOKY survey in March of 1966.
Truly Judy is a lover of 50’s, 6o’s and early 70’s music and is currently a DJ at www.topshelfoldies.org where they play the best in uncommon oldies and songs that weren’t over-played on the radio. Join us for live shows every night of the week, and our Auto DJ, Otto, plays music the rest of the day. Hope to see you there.
