Today In Oldies 7/29/2010

At the Golden Hits Radio news desk......
Where Are They Now? - The Stampeders

The Stampeders were a Canadian act who began as The Rebounds in 1965.  The name change came a year later, but chart success both in the U.S. and their native land eluded them until 1971 when "Sweet City Woman" took North America by storm.  It hit #1 in Canada and #8 the U.S.  It was also named Song of the Year at the Juno Awards, the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys.

Contrary to popular belief, The Stampeders are NOT a one hit wonder in America.  Their cover of "Hit The Road, Jack" featuring Wolfman Jack dented the U.S. Top 40 (as in #40) in 1975.

The Stampeders broke up in 1977, but reformed in 1992 and continue to keep an active touring schedule around Canada.  Find more on the Stampeders website here.  And re-live their heyday @ Everything Oldies below.......
