Kathy Young recorded her first record just before her 15th birthday, and soon found herself riding high on radio charts all over the country. A Thousand Stars peaked at number three on Billboard, but in reality, she had the number one record on most radio stations everywhere. It lasted over three months on the national charts. Darn respectable for someone who just a few weeks earlier had been "discovered" at a Wink Martindale show in southern California. She was born in Long Beach, California, and according to the Billboard magazine Music Week, she played guitar and enjoyed surfing, song writing and arranging. She had a trio of songs on the National charts and several others at the local level. Kathy Young had the Innocents as her backup group, who were stars in their own right, and she recorded two duets on the Monogram label with established star Chris Montez of "Let's Dance" fame. Several singles, an EP, an LP and four appearances on the Dick Clark show set her career in motion. She traveled the country appearing with stars that would make up a who's who list of music entertainers from the early 60's. Shown below are many of her records as we travel on a journey through the records and record labels of Kathy Young!
