It was probably his "Mother-In-Law."

Anybody remember this?  Gene Bua was a Brooklyn boy who was in my class at St. Ann's/Archbishop Molloy HS along with Ray Kelly (yes, THAT Ray Kelly).  We all thought he was nuts, but he had some success with this song, then went to Hollywood, where he had a relatively successful career in soaps, and ran the acting school that Brad Pitt went to . . .

mmm, I went to elementary school with John Bua who talked about his brother being a singer. However, this was St. Fidelis in College Point, Queens. The 1958 timeline fits in so I wonder if Gene lived in Brooklyn with relatives then or travelled to Molloy daily from CP?

 Back in 1956 a group called The Five Satins, with lead singer Freddie Paris (soon to be 84 years old) first sang this song at St Bernadette's Church in New Haven, Ct.

 About 60 years later they got together at that church again to sing that song for an upcoming PBS Show.

 Here is their famous hit called: "In the Still of the Night".

And in the church basement was where the song was recorded for the master tape. One of the "Satins" was unable to attend the session so the sax was played by a church member Vinnie Mazzetta. Ironically, "In The Still Of The Nite" was to be released as the "B" side with "The Jones Girl" as the plug "A" side.

 Thank you Charlie "memory master" T., for that interesting info.

 It's not considered Doo Wop, but about a week ago I went to a FREE Show at the Mohegan Sun's Wolf Den. It was called "The Motown Revue". One group singing numerous hits like; "My Girl", "Dancing in the street", "Ain't too Proud to Beg", "Stop in the Name of Love", etc. It was a full house with other people watching from outside the Den, along the gate.

 Only proves that Doo Wop and Motown Music STILL "LIVES ON".

Emil Stucchio, formerly of "The Classics", is a retired NYC Transit Police Sgt. and a hell of a nice guy. His group had the 1963 hit redoing "Till Then" which was previously recorded by the Mills Brothers and the "Hilltoppers."

Here is an upcoming event that you folks may be interested in, a countdown of 60's songs at www.popgoldradio.com on Feb. 29th. It will probably be in the afternoon for four hours but as soon as I get an exact time I'll post it.
