1957 The Techniques – Hey! Little Girl

1957 The Techniques – Hey! Little Girl 

The word “forgotten” seems to fit more than it usually does for this record. The doo-wop song at least got some airplay in the New York area. You should not confuse the single with the 1964 song Hey! Little Girl by Del Shannon or the 1959 song Hey Little Girl by Dee Clark.

Four singers in a glee club at Georgia Tech University in the mid-fifties formed the singing group The Techniques, a name they took from the university newspaper.  Buddy Funk, Jim Moore, Chuck Poston, and Mike Tierney were also all members of the same fraternity.

Buddy wrote the song Hey Little Girl, which became their first single. Roulette Records issued their song in 1957. The single peaked at #29.

Chuck and Mike joined the military, after which two more singers took their places. The revised group recorded a second single, but it didn’t chart.
