Misfits - Showboat - Santa Claus -1967

Let's go down to southern Indiana, circa 1967. The Misfits, On Showboat #1517. Tucked away in Santa Claus, Indiana, label owner Ray Scrivener released 45's with Showboat, Skoop, and Kasko imprints. Rock, country, gospel, and pop singles, alas none produced a hit.

Please Don't Go Away
I'll Feel Better (in the morning)

The Misfits are unknown so far. Songwriter credits
Kneeland - DeVillez. So, Indiana sleuths, let's get crackin'. There was a quantity of the 45 found, so prices aren't way out there.

Legend also has an acetate of unreleased songs "Cry, Cry, Cry - If You Believe in Yesterday". I'd love to get my hands on those tunes!

Lovin' Kind - Ft. Wayne

Teenage moppets from Concordia and South Side High Schools, Ft. Wayne, 1967.

The Lovin' Kind :
Brian Kosteck - seated - drums
Jim Papagiannis - far left - lead guitar
Bruce Etzler - far right - bass
Gary Hall - back left - lead singer
Ken Schiebenberger - back right - Rhythm guitar

The Lovin' Kind started in Sept. '66, and added Brian and Gary in early '67. With the "Animals" being the groups favorite band, the Lovin' Kind had big dreams for the future. Bruce had one song " I Like" arranged and ready for recording, but it's unknown if they ever got to the studio.

Thanks for the memories boys! It's time to be heard from. Recordings, records, other bands, funny stories? We will keep a spot here open for you.
