DOOWOPOBIT: Sanders Barber Junior

The death has been announced of Sanders Barber Junior, doo-wop singer.

Barber had founded The Condors straight after graduation. Although never over-worrying the top end of the charts, the band had quite a following in and around Pittsburgh and were still playing the circuit. Barber had supplemented his income working during the day for the local sewage and water company.

Barber had been fighting leukemia for a year; it was related complications which finally claimed him.
