    That falsetto!
    They said 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' sounded 'ridiculous' and asked their label not to release it.
    They apparently overcame their dislike of the song because Medress produced a sound-alike cover by Robert John with the other Tokens as background singers.
    Mitch Margo wrote the scores for two TV movies starring Gary Coleman.
    Medress produced an album by Richard Simmons.
    The Margo brothers and Seigel led rival Tokens on the oldies circuit.
    Neil Sedaka was an early member of the group.
    'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' hit number one for 3 weeks.
    The band produced the Chiffons' chart-topper, 'He's So Fine.'
    They performed the Schoolhouse Rock! song 'A Victim of Gravity.'
    They sang 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at all 30 major league stadiums (1998).
