Carol Buschmann grew up in Sheboygan, Wisconsin where she joined the all girls singing group the Chordettes just a year after it was formed in 1947. She stayed with the group until they disbanded in the early 1960s after having several top selling albums and two hit records in the 1950s including “Mr. Sandman” and the crossover hit “Lollipop.” While with the group she performed all across the country, on television and radio. She and the other girls decided to return home to raise their families, this after having played an important role in popular music.
