Ron Dante and Toni Wine of The Archies performing their #1 song from 1969, "Sugar, Sugar," on the New York City segment of the 2006 Labor Day Telethon for Muscular Dystrophy. Ron Dante was the lead vocalist for the fictional group, and Toni Wine provided the female voices on this as well as several other Archies recordings. Ron and Toni are seen here performing live on the 2006 MDA Telethon; this segment aired in the New York area only, with Tony Orlando as master of ceremonies.
Since 1966, the MDA Telethon, hosted by Jerry Lewis, has taken place every year on Labor Day Weekend, with stations around the country carrying the broadcast; approximately 15-20 minutes of each hour consists of segments from the local stations, exclusive to their market areas. (See rg for more details.) The Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon has raised millions and millions of dollars for the fight against muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular diseases.
"Sugar, Sugar" was written by Jeff Barry and Andy Kim, and the single by The Archies, with Ron and Toni's cool vocals, became the Record of the Year for 1969. Visit rondante.com and niwine.com
