One-hit wonders achieve short-term popularity for only one piece of work and become known solely for that success so long ago.

For example 25 years ago, back In 1996, I was Station Manager in charge of building a broadcast station in Valverde County Texas. KTRG-TV (Television from the Rio Grande) was right smack dab near the US-Mexico border, with the transmitter in Eagle Pass and offices in Del Rio Texas. During that time, a one-hit-wonder duo known as Los Del Río’s recorded their one and only smash hit record that broke the charts and smashed the hit parade.

It has been succinctly said that an antithesis to sibling rivalry in musical terms, is brotherly, sisterly, or Everly Harmony.

The Andrew Sisters had it. So do The Soto Brothers. Last but not least, The Everly Brothers. Their songs shaped many musical ambitions, including mine.

RIP: Don Everly, one-half of the pioneering Everly Brothers whose harmony hits pleased a generation of rock ‘n’ rollers.
