Sixties Music
The year is 1965 and  an almost unknown rock band from Ohio called The McCoys
        recorded a song called "Hang On Sloopy."  "Hang On Sloopy" was
    inspired by a woman named Dorothy Sloop who was a native of
     Steubenville, Ohio.  Apparently she had a career as a singer in the
          1950's and used the name "Sloopy" as a stage name.  Dorothy Sloop
       passed away in Pass Christian, Mississippi.  Her song will long live
on in the hearts of people for years to come....


The McCoys', "Hang On Sloopy"
