Hi,  Singer Rod Lauren, born Roger Lawrence Strunk, was groomed in 1960 by RCA Victor Records to be the next big teen idol…it never happened.  He did chart one hit single in December of 1959…IF I HAD A GIRL.  The single climbed to #31 on the Billboard Hot 100 and remained on the chart for 10 weeks, it was his only Hot 100 hit.  The single was popular in early 1960 but after dropping off the chart it has become  “Lost Gold”.  Rod died in a fall in 2007 at the age of 67.  Here is Rod Lauren singing his hit record from 1960…IF I HAD A GIRL.

If I Had a Girl – 1960

Till the next time—Joe
