40 Year Itch : What's an Hour of the Day

Lynda Carter on the set of Wonder Woman
Tavares : It Only Takes A Minute

  The brothers Tavares would top both the R and B charts and the disco charts with "It Only Takes A Minute", one of the most memorable US hits of the Summer of '75. Fun fact: in an earlier incarnation as Chubby and the Turnpikes, the New Bedford, MA band had future Aerosmith member Joey Kramer playing drums. 

  One of the best things about Tavares was their stage act. That came courtesy of the legendary Motown choreographer Cholly Atkins who also taught The Temptations, The Supremes and The O'Jays their dance steps.
