Louise Murray

Singer Louie Murray of The Hearts and the Jaynetts joins guest host Bobby G when he fills in for Alan Seltzer Thursday night at 9 PM on “The Grooveyard”.  A pioneer member of R&B girl groups from the early 1950s, Louise’s vocals on “Lonely Nights” was a top seller in New York when it was released in 1955.  She had an even bigger hit when “Sally Go ‘Round the Roses” was recorded by the Jaynetts in 1963.  The Top Ten @ 10 will feature the hits of December 4, 1961.
