    Here the Chad Mitchell Trio performs "Dona, dona, dona" on the Bell Telephone Hour in the mid-1960s.

    As a young teenager I came to know the Chad Mitchell Trio. They remain to this day my favorite singing group of all time! I just found out they have been performing together again. What a kick! After various changes in members (Chad Mitchell's replacement when he went to seek a solo career was John Denver!), the three I knew and loved are back singing at venues too far for me to go and see -- sniff!

    Mike, Chad, and Joe forever !!!
