Spanky And Our Gang were a folk-pop group from Chicago that took their name from the Little Rascals series of movies, serials and TV shows. Elaine "Spanky" McFarlane was the lead singer with the other members made up of Malcolm Hale, Lefty Baker, Nigel Pickering, Kenny Hodges and John Seiter. Sadly Malcolm Hale and Lefty Baker both died of liver failure in 1968 and 1971 respectively.
In two short years they charted nine singles and achieved one Top Ten hit.
This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice spotlights Spanky And Our Gang with two of their most loved hit songs: Sunday Will Never Be The Same and Lazy Day.
