Fun For Baby Boomers: Wolf Laurel Country Club Avoids Diplomatic Incident


In a recent telephone call, I had occasion to resolve a heated international trivia debate at The Wolf Laurel Country Club. Residents of two continents, in-laws I believe, were in disagreement over the artist who performed "Hey There Little Red Ridin' Hood". The answer of course is Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs. The song peaked at #2 on Billboard in August of 1966.

In 1965 however, the # 1 song of the year belonged to this same group. Much to everyone's surprise, (remember that other big band in '65, The Beatles?), "Wooly Bully" topped the charts. The video below is from "Hullabaloo". I was 12, how about you?
