Teen Scene,  June 1966



Here's one bunch of young men who don't underestimate a woman when it comes to organisation.  They are the Bo Street Runners, co-managed by the girl in pic above; Joan Kimlosy, who handles the boys along with her husband Stephen.

"She's doing a fine job" says lead vocalist Mike Patto

Mike, incidentally, is part of the "new-look" Runners, for there are only two original members remaining from the five that started out in Harrow in 1964.

The group reckon their sound has improved no end and if you want proof, take a listen to their latest, The Bo Street Runners' R n' B slanted version of Lennon and McCartney's "Drive My Car."
