Friday Flashback: The Angels Performing ‘My Boyfriend’s Back’ on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1963!

July 29th, 2011

On October 6, 1963, The Angels (sisters Phyllis “Jiggs” & Barbara Allbut and Peggy Santiglia) appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show and performed “My Boyfriend’s Back.” The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for three consecutive weeks from August 31-September 20, 1963.


  1. Peggy co-wrote the song “Beggin” for the Seasons. Did the Angles also do back-up singing for Frankie solo hits. Thinking particularly “You’re Ready Now” and the Proud One.” Sue sounds like them.
