A Thursday birthday on Wayback Wednesday this week. October 17th marks Gary Puckett’s 77th birthday! Gary was born in 1942 in Hibbing, MN, but moved to Yakima, WA, not far from the city of Union Gap, which gave his group its name. He also grew up in Twin Falls, ID. Here’s Gary lip-syncing one of the group’s big early hits on Ed Sullivan…Young Girl. Happy Birthday Gary!
