SALAD WAFERS

Today’s Version of “Salad Wafers”

(The above 10-inch acetate is a really goofy sets of commercial bits for Nabisco’s “Five Pack Salad Wafers” – recorded in Denver.

“H-U-R-T” from July, 1964 on KIMN Radio by Denny and Jay

Greeley, Colorado’s Denny & Jay were signed to Capitol Records but didn’t manage to chart with this local hit.  Denny Rockwell continued on releasing three singles on the subsidiary label, Tower.  Prior to their 1964 Capitol release they put out one single on the obscure Enith International label (1962).  The two separated – not in contact with one another for years but managed to connect just prior to Denny’s passing away a few years ago.

“All Over Again” from August, 1964 on KIMN Radio by Jill Jackson

Jill Jackson is “Paula” of Paul and Paula fame.  “All Over Again” did not chart nationally.  It was released in August of 1964.  Both Jill and her singing partner, Ray Hildebrand (“Paul”) were born in Texas.  “Hey Paula” was first released on Le Cam Records in November of 1962, and then picked up by Philips where it would soar to number 1 in the nation for three weeks.  Hildebrand departed from the duo and later re-emerged as a member of the Christian group “Land and Hildebrand”.  Jill continued on as a solo act for a time.

“Hugo” from August, 1964 on KIMN Radio by Linda Hall

Yet another non-charting single, the promotional sleeve boasts of the single “breaking out” in the Atlanta-Birmingham markets.  Linda sports a very young “teenish” narrative on this single.  But the important thing is she “loves Hugo”!

And based on the voice – this is most likely our same Linda Hall (who has now apparently dumped poor “Hugo”:

“The Eskimo Song” from November, 1964 on KIMN Radio by Don Rutherford (and the Emotionals)

This is an obscure local single from Morey Bernstein’s Finer Arts record label located first in Los Angeles and then Denver.  The single somehow also made it’s way onto the Australian label W.G.  I wonder what became of The Emotionals?

“The Summer of ‘64” from November, 1964 on KIMN Radio by The Sophomores

This group released songs on several labels including Epic – all without success of any kind.  Not certain if the guys shown below are the “Sound Stage 7” Sophomores or not.  Here is a rather lengthy article about the Sophomores.
