Written and originally recorded in 1958 by Terry Noland, There Was A Fungus Among Us was provided a second life in the 1961 Chicago market through the inspiration of WLS's legendary DJ, Dick Biondi, and his fascination with the Noland release.

Constantly using the phrase on the air, Biondi quickly established the line into the teen lexicon of the period, becoming so popular that he worked out a deal with Hugh Barrett and the Victors and the locally-based Madison label to record an updated version of the title.

Following an hours-long recording session, involving 26 takes, the final result was put together from a compilation of takes 1 and 26. Biondi then began a massive promotional blitz, which resulted in a solid hit in the regional market.

The whole album that this song comes from is great! I have a soft spot for "alternative country".
