My cousin Georgene Neuzil, the top girl on the right side. She played bass and sang in the group. She did the talking solo in the song "Ask Anyone Who Knows." They toured with the USO back than. I used to hear their song played on the (Captain Kangaroo Show) - 1970's, when I was kid (The Music, Goes, Round, & Round). Flashback Thursday.
