971 Winter 2020 Return of the One-Hit Wonders
Monday, 2:15–3:40, Feb. 17
Instructor: Jim Dunphy

Now that OLLI has heard of Zager and Evans, The New Vaudeville Band, CW McCall, Toni Basil, and Aha, we have plumbed the well of one-hit wonders, but have not come close to the bottom. This presentation will cover the Honeycombs, Norman Greenbaum, Thomas Dolby, and the Starland Vocal Band, among others. We will look at the acts, view videos of their hits, and then contemplate their second act. Let’s take another walk down the musical road and again bask in the glow of one-hit wonders.
Jim Dunphy grew up in Brooklyn, New York, listening to the Good Guys on WMCA spin the platters, including some of these one-hit wonders. He has taught a variety of OLLI classes on history, sports, music, literature, and movies.
