At a time when A-sides ruled local and national charts, Dick and Dee Dee defied all odds of having a hit with a local B-side record.
Once the musical talents of Dick St. John and Dee Dee Phelps united, they were an unstoppable team.
Dee Dee tells InterviewUniverse.com about how major California stations KYA, and later KRLA, played an integral part in “accidentally” launching their stardom. She also talks about traveling via bus with Dick Clark’s Caravan of Stars and performing with the Beach Boys when they were a new band.
This interview is a taste of Dee Dee’s new memoir, Vinyl Highway.
