Colleen Lovett, Waxmate of the Month

(from her Laff album, 1979)

Texas-born Colleen Lovett  was known as one of the Lovett Sisters, a singing duo with her sister Charlotte.
When we were very young teenagers, we began singing on the W.F.A.A. Sat. Night Shindig radio and T.V. shows, and later on the W.R.R. Big 'D' Jamboree in Dallas. It was during this time period that we were signed by a major record label, Imperial Records. 
In 1957, Colleen married bandleader Teddy Phillips, 22 years her senior.

In 1984, Colleen, now Dr. Colleen Phillips, Ph.D., Diet Nutritionist, founded Diet Doctors Medical Mgmt, a successful medical weight loss center in Canoga Park, CA.  In 2003, Colleen and Char once again hit the recording studios as the Lovett Sisters and released their double album "Wheels of Time".
