Believe it or not, this is the first gold record of
Melanie’s career. “Brank New Key.” Presenting the
record is Tony Martell (center) of Famous Music,
to Melanie and her husband, Peter Schekeryk.
Note: Another example that record sales and
quality songs are sometimes mutually exclusive.

Cover: 
WMAK’s dapper John Young and friend on stage
at Auditorium.
My guess: supposed to read (at) Municipal (…)
Anyone recognize John’s friend? I’m serious.
