The Chordettes’s Biography


The group is created in 1946 in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, originally formed by Janet Ertel (September 21, 1913 – November 4, 1988), Carol Buschmann, her stepsister, Dorothy Schwartz and Jinny Osborn (or Jinny Lockard) ( April 25, 1928 – May 19, 2003). In 1952 Lynn Evans replaced Schwartz and in 1953, Margie Needham replaced Osborn, when they were to become mothers, although the latter returned later to the group. Nancy Overton (February 6, 1926 – April 5, 2009) also belonged to the group at a later time.

Originally they sang popular music in the style of The Weavers, but over time they changed to a style of harmonization of the type known as barbershop or close harmony.


Arthur Godfrey discovered the group on his radio program Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts, becoming fixed during the 1950s and 1954. In 1953, Godfrey’s musical director and musical director, Archie Bleyer, founded the company Cadence Records that he would record the singers and groups that had been through the program, including The Chordettes.

His first big success was Mister Sandman in 1954, of which more than a million copies were sold, and this success was followed by many others during the 1950s and 1960s, often with versions of songs from Rock music and R & amp; B. “Eddie My Love” (1956) “Lollipop” (1958) “Zorro” (1958) “Never On Sunday” (1961) which is considered his last success. Changes in the group and the loss of success made them disappear, although in the 1990s the group reappears with Lynn Evans, Nancy Overton and sister Jean Swain, plus Doris Alberti, in a series of concerts with Eddy Arnold. From this tour there is a cassette recording of a live concert in Branson, Missouri.
