OR are they? The Andrews Sisters were an American close harmony singing group of the swing and boogie-woogie eras.
As you might have guessed, this Pic Pick is not of the Andrews Sisters, but is of a tribute group thrown together in 1978 for the first of People photographer David Graves’s famous Man of the People charity concerts.
We carried a feature about the concert in Mirror Pensioner in 2009, so it’s not new, but the picture is worth another outing.
The group sang Chattanooga Choo Choo, and the reviewer of the day, Bill Hagerty, agreed they had “a certain elan”.
From the left: Mirror Pensioner and website editor Caro Cluskey; Sue Bullivant, who eventually headed up Readers’ Service; and journalist Sue Montgomery, who later joined The Sporting Life. The not-the-Andrews-Sisters group has refused all blandishments to come out of retirement.
