It's a dark night, and I'm reading a facebook page, "Planet Hammond". Suddenly a plea catches my attention:
"The "Kritters" were definitely the most popular. Band leader Ron Jongsma, and Rick Grigsby lived in my neighborhood and we were treated to garage concerts on summer nights. They recorded a record called "Hey Car Hop", but I believe it it was under a previous name, which I can't remember......Help."
The Exports is the band in question, circa 1964.
Ron Jongsma - Guitar
George Felaney - Guitar
Tom Barnhart - Guitar
Howard Friedman - Drums
The Exports left us two 45's
King 5917 - Car Hop / Seat Belts Please
King 5985 - Mustang '65 / Always It's You
I had the Car Hop 45, didn't know it was Indiana related, but it is a great surf\hot rod instrumental. Now I have to find the Mustang '65............
Special thanks to Jim Carley for the inspiration.
