K-Chuck Radio Hit of the Day: The Staccatos, "Half Past Midnight"

Today we have some sweet baroque pop from The Staccatos, a five-man band from Ottawa. "Half Past Midnight" was a Top 10 hit in Canada in 1967, and won several awards. In America, the song was released on Capitol's subsidiary label Tower, but the song went nowhere in the States.

Here's the single version of "Half Past Midnight" on K-Chuck Radio:

As an added bonus, here's The Staccatos performing their hit on Montreal's CFCF television station.

The Staccatos eventually morphed into another group, Five Man Electrical Band, and had a monster hit with the song "Signs."
