Yes! It’s Trivia Tuesday for July 23rd. And this week, like every week it’s brought to us by the very groovey people over at Omnivore Recordings! Your number one location for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know!

And before we get to this week’s question, we’d like to recognize the brilliant readers who correctly answered last week’s question, which was an Anagram “Severely Slip” unscrambles to become… Elvis Presley! “Yeah, Unh hunh Hunh” The King!            Last week, many of you nailed our Anagram, including: Fast Freddie Vogel who was the very first in! Followed closely by Julie! who also correctly pointed out that Elvis didn’t write any of his hits! The original “Rock Doc. John Zambetti came by, correctly answered our question PLUS gave us another Anagram “Silvery Sleep” Which also unscrambles to YEP, Elvis Presley… Thanx Mr. Z. Lastly  our good buddy from “White House Tenn. Curtis Stone dropped by, correctly answered the question and shared a great story about his dad Cliffie Stone, a true Country Music legend. Thanx and congrats one and all!

But now, it’s time for this week’s “Little” Trivia Question: In The 60’s there were several artists who added the word “Little” to their stage name! A current example of what we’re looking for would be “Little Steven” ( Steven Van Zandt from Springsteen’s E Street band)  Sooooo, Here is what we need:  Give us the names of at least Four recording artist’s from the 60’s who added the word “Little” to their stage name in their early years! Additionally, Give us at least one title of one hit from each of the four artists

In Summary: We need the names of 4 artists from the 60’s who included the word “Little” in their stage name, and the titles of at least one hit from each of the four!
