    Thunderbird Records was formed in the early 1960s by Len and Ben Weisman. Like its allied label Sahara Records it was named after a Las Vegas gambling casino frequented by an affiliate who later became a partner. Len Weisman is better known locally as Buffalo’s biggest player in the record business, Lenny Silver. "Baby Doll" became a hit locally on WDUZ Green Bay, Wisconsin. After this the girls and band went back to Test Records and got a release as Candy & The Corals and again failing to hit, theydisappeared from our world of records and radio.
