New Oldies - Why? Marianne by The Falkons


  1. Your names are wrong for the group members. From left to right, they are Keith Waltke, Al Covey, Roger Aldrich, Bob Smith and Ron Shaffer. I'm a Sturgis native and knew three of the band members and their kids.

    1. Thanks for the correction! It's hard to find accurate information about some of the local bands from the 1960's. It's now clear that this song was written by two of the members, Keith and Al. Now I'm left wondering about the names I used! Do you recognize any of the names I found? It would be great to know something about the background of The Falkons from the members themselves. Maybe one of them knows these other guys. Anyway, thanks very much for checking out my blog and adding this important new information!
