The first Spanish group to hit the charts: Los Bravos--Black is Black (1966)

     Today is Mike Kogel's 66th birthday!

      Mike (who was born in Berlin)  was the lead vocalist for the group Los Bravos, who in 1966 became the first group of Spanish origin to hit the charts. They had somewhat better success in Europe, but "Black is Black" was the only song to reach any kind of popularity here in the states. Don't forget to check out the best oldies station on the planet.
