This installment of The Five Count featured an exclusive interview with Little Anthony. As the leader of Little Anthony & The Imperials, Little Anthony is the voice behind such classics as Shimmy, Shimmy, Ko-Ko-Bop, Goin’ Out of My Head, and Tears on My Pillow. He’s also a member of the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. During the show he discussed his early days in the music business, dealing with racism while on the road in the ‘50s and ‘60s, and why he hates the term “doo wop” when referring to The Imperials. We hate it, too!
During the rest of the show we announced Ton’s appearance in the upcoming production of the Nutcracker, discussed our various food phobias, listed all the reasons we love the band Jackyl, and practiced our sexy voices. It was difficult to sound sexier than we already do.
