Presenting ... The Kim Sisters
Presenting ... The Kim Sisters

Listen
AIR DATE: March 27, 2014

They called themselves "The Kim Sisters" - three lovely ladies from Korea with matching dresses, slick up-dos, and big smiles.  They sang and danced in the spirit of the Andrews Sisters, and America loved it. Ed Sullivan had them on his show 21 times, and they performed at the Stardust and Thunderbird Hotels. One of the surviving sisters, Sook-Ja "Sue" Kim Bonifazio, joins us to talk about showbiz in the 1960s, how they were successful in an era of all-white groups, and how three little Korean girls who used to sing for U.S. troops made it big in America.
