Billboard, March 3, 1962 :
« The Egg-Beater, » new release by Dale Wright and the Wright Guys on the Starburst label and an accompanying dance originated by the lads, is taking off in this sector.

Bob Braun, at WLW and Bob Smith and Dick Provost, of WCPO, have also been spinning the new Wright release.
