Richie Knight & The Mid-Knights - Song Of The Week

Richie Knight & The Mid-Knights have the distinction of being the first Canadian group to ever reach the Number One spot on the 1050 CHUM chart in Toronto. This was quite a feat, considering it happened 50 years ago in 1963.

In celebration of this milestone in Canadian music history, the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Charlena by Richie Knight & The Mid-Knights. It's our Song Of The Week.

Congratulations to my good friends Doug Chappell, who played bass, and to George Semkiw, the guitarist, and the rest of the band members.
