Zelda, Oh, Zelda
In 1962, KSO [Des Moines, Iowa] air personality and program director Dick Vance recorded a 45 RPM record entitled "Sharon oh Sharon" (Sor-Va Records). The song was promoted on KSO and charted locally in December 1962
Shortly after, Good Guy Doug MacKinnon from another DesMoines radio, KIOA, recorded a takeoff on "Sharon Oh Sharon" as Leroy Breadsacker. Adam Jones wrote the lyrics. Pressed by King Records in 1963 on the Foodlady label, the record was sold for $1.00 each. The proceeds went to a charity.
A-side is the vocal side (part 2), B-side (same title) is an instrumental (part 3). There is indeed no part 1.
