Popular oldies groups coming to Hagerstown [ group profiles ] It's the songs, not the singers. "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," by The Platters, "Yakety Yak," by The Coasters, The Drifters' "Up on the Roof" and "Please Mr. Postman" by The Marvelettes evoke youthful memories for countless baby boomers. The groups have been around since the 1950s and '60s. There won't be any original members on stage at The Maryland Theatre Saturday, Nov. 21, at 8 p.m., but that hasn't stopped area fans from nearly selling out the house.

katec@herald-mail.com Nothing brings back a memory like a song, says Ron Dante, who will be part of "'60s Under the Stars" Friday, Aug. 23, in downtown Hagerstown.

Dante was lead vocalist for The Archies, the "bubblegum" pop group created for "The Archie Show," the animated Saturday morning program that featured its cartoon characters in song and dance.

The 50th reunion for the North Hagerstown High School Class of 1961 was recently celebrated. Eighty-four class members and their guests attended the weekend event. On Friday evening, classmates gathered at Morris Frock Post 42 American Legion on Northern Avenue for a meet and greet. Fortunately, name tags were worn, as many members had not seen each other in 50 years. There was a joyous feeling of camaraderie in the air. As “oldies” played in the background and cries of recognition could be heard, the years melted away and it was as if they had all come to a sock hop after the game.

I hadn't realized until I started putting recipes together for this column in November and December how many recipes I have from various family members that span several generations and many decades. This applesauce cake recipe came from my grandmother on my father's side, and I would put a lot of money on this recipe being at least 100 years old. This was my father's favorite cake, and my mother made it for his birthday every year that I can remember. Given that he lived to be 84, he enjoyed quite a few applesauce cakes in his day. - Joyce Summers Applesauce cake 2 cups applesauce 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 cups sugar 3/4 cup shortening 3 cups flour 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon allspice 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1 cup raisins Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

FAIRPLAY - Carolyn Seburn has been a member of the Oldies But Goodies group at her church for about five years. "We stress the Goodies part rather than the Oldies," she said. Most of the members are 60-ish and older, but no one checks IDs. One Sunday a month, the group of 20 to 25 members and friends of the Manor Church of the Brethren stay after services to share a carry-in meal, fellowship and whatever else they can get into. The activities that follow depend entirely on preferences of the members, said Pastor Joy Zepp, who often attends the get-together with her husband, Bill.

BLUE RIDGE SUMMIT, Pa. - The third and final day of Mountain Top Heritage Days split activities between the main corner of Blue Ridge Summit and the former Fort Ritchie U.S. Army base in Cascade, Md. Visitors were encouraged to board shuttle buses that took them from the modern-day craft and food vendors in Blue Ridge Summit to the 1940s-style events at the base. Under the theme "Swinging into Summer," dance demonstrations and oldies music begged picnickers to tap their feet by one of the former base's lakes.

I'm a huge fan of the music genre known as "Oldies," and I say that not because I mean it, but because I understand that there are many people out there who have Very Strong Feelings about the subject and since my bulletproof vest is at the cleaners, offending this demo is a chance I just can't take. But I can't help wondering what they thought when they switched on the radiotrola to discover that one of Washington County's flagship stations, 106.9, had switched from Oldies to Classic Rock and named itself "The Eagle.

andrear@herald-mail.com Paul Foltz might be a security guard by day, but every night he picks up a microphone to belt out oldies tunes at karaoke clubs throughout the Tri-State area. He's one of many amateur vocalists who've kept karaoke - a form of entertainment for which a novice singer accompanies recorded music - on the nightclub charts since the pastime started about 20 years ago in Japan. Foltz, 24, of Hagerstown, said he sings along to music by The Drifters, The Temptations and other oldies bands at karaoke gatherings seven nights a week.
