Is this the show where they sang and spelled the words happening
One of the bright spots of Friday evening for me on a Friday night was watching "It's Happening" also known as A Go GO '66 on the CTV network. Robbie Lane was fun, but I really liked the Motown like girl group, Gigi and the Charmaines. For some reason I thought they were from Toronto, but it appears they were American and from Cincinatti. They usually did a Supremes/Vandellas/Marvelettes cover and an original tune.
Great fun. The show was pretty good for the time and I remember a few guest appearances from Motown Records greats Jimmy Ruffin and Martha Reeves! I see that the Charmaines have a CD released in England. Oh, for the innocence of those days and in B&W as well! R. Mark Desjardins
