n the 1960s, you couldn't get any cooler than
the Shy Guys. Man, these cats were happen-
ing!
The Shy Guys -- all students at Oak Park High
School — had big hair kept in place with plenty
of product. They wore white shirts underneath
black, V-neck sweaters. Smooth.
In May 1966, the Shy Guys released their one
hit, "We Gotta Go:' on the Panik label. It was a
catchy tune — the kind of song some kid on

American Bandstand would invariably describe
as having "a good beat." It included a guitar
solo (a little wild, just to let you know these
guys were ready for anything!) and one long
"Yeaaaaaahhh!" amid lyrics like "Their lives are
dull / Don't have no fun / no matter what they
do:'
Among those inspired was fellow student Don
Fagenson — today known as Don Was.

Approximately 70 women from
synagogues, sisterhoods and com-
munities throughout Metro Detroit gathered to enjoy an
evening of pre-Purim fun and friendship amid a backdrop
of food, decor and entertainment from ancient Middle
Eastern traditions.
The event was named in honor of Queen Vashti, a char-
acter in the Book of Esther, which is read on Purim (this
year on March 8). The story says that Vashti, the first wife
of Persian King Ahasuerus, was banished after refusing to
leave the women's banquet she was hosting to dance naked
before the king and his royal guests. Young Esther, a Jewish
