Today is Record Store Day, so I pulled up an appropriate song.
Sandy Selsie was born in 1946 in the Toronto suburb of Richmond Hill, Ontario. She attended Bayview High School there. The family took a trip to Nashville to audition at the Columbia Records studios. She was signed to a five year contract with the label right on the spot! She released her first record on Columbia when she was just 15 years old. She was managed by her father, Fred Selsie. She started out singing in area shows. This led to appearances on local radio and television shows, like Tommy Hunter's radio show and Country Hoedown on television. She appeared on Hi Time on CFTO Channel 9 in Toronto on 25 August 1962 along with other guests Pat Hervey, The Beau-Marks, Gord Lightfoot, and Ronn Metcalfe. She did a personal appearance at the Sayvette City Record Bar on 3 May 1962. I don't know what she's been up to lately. If you do, by all means let me know.
Here's Gonna Get Some Records by Sandy Selsie on Columbia 42594 from 1962:
Now go buy some old vinyl records! While you're driving from one record shop to the next, plug your mobile device into your aux input and let MusicMaster Oldies keep you entertained.
