Hollywood Argyles - Alley Oop - Number One Song of the Week

The Hollywood Argyles were a concoction of Gary Paxton. He actually recorded the song as a solo artist. Because he was still under contract with Brent Records, as "Flip" of Skip & Flip, he made up the group name after street signs at Hollywood and Argyle in Los Angeles.

Alley Oop became a Number One record  and this week on the Treasure Island Oldies Top Five Countdown from 1960 we're featuring this song.

Here's the Hollywood Argyles and Alley Oop in a clip from the TV show, Saturday Night Beech Nut Show, with host Dick Clark.

It's our Song of the Week.
