A huge local (Washington D.C.) in early '66 for the Hangmen - although
according to _Goldmine_ #140 it was actually recorded by the Reekers, who
would evolve into the Hangmen by the time it was released.  I don't have

  playing 15 minutes at the time and it took half an hour to disperse the
    Shaver said he had had record stars perform at his store before,
  including Johnny Rivers, Johnny Tillotson, Peter and Gordon, and Ramsey
