I was one of the original "Champagnes" the back-up singers for Nancy Claire and the Viceroys. I finally found some pictures of those old, fun days. The three girls, from left to right are Linda McGarah (me), Alana Campbell and Carolyn Berner. We all attended Kent-Meridian High School, as did Nancy. We started singing with the Viceroys in late 1963. Alana Campbell had just graduated from high school in June 1963. I was a senior and Carolyn a junior.
I left the group in the summer of '64 to go to college that fall. I don't remember if they kept going or not. It was quite a ride... a great memory. I was lucky to have that experience.
