They moved to Downey, California in 1963 and were a very musical brother-sister duo. Richard played piano and Karen played drums with bass player Wes Jacobs in 1965. They recorded for RCA Records in 1966 without success. The year following their signing with A&M Records in 1969 as a duo, they won the 1970 Best New Artist Grammy Award.
During their twelve year run on the charts, they had 4 Number Ones, 13 Top Ten Hits, and received 10 Gold Records. Quite a run!
This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents The Carpenters. Vote now at the Voice Your Choice Page for either Goodbye To Love or We've Only Just Begun, both Top Five smash hits. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour on next week's show.
