Today’s Remember When mystery photo, above left, shows a Tracy garage band. What was the name of the band, who were its members and when was the group together?





Last week’s Remember When mystery photo, below left, shows Allen Wilson moving toward the basket during the 1967-68 basketball season at Tracy High School.

Wilson, considered the best shooting guard in school history, scored 581 points in the season to bring his three-year varsity total to 1,114 points, a school record.

Former Tracy High basketball coach Paul Demsher reported that Wilson now stands in fourth place among Bulldog scorers. Steve Gemelos leads with 1,206 points.

Wilson earned a scholarship to Baylor University in Texas, but a knee injury in his freshman year ended his basketball career.

In addition to Demsher, Tom Tillotson, Ray McCray and Henry Villanueva also identified Wilson in the photo.

How could we forget? That is the A Street boys who make their mark in the late 80s playing fun cover tunes and blessing the neighbors on Acacia St. on endless summer nights with new and old memorable tunes. Also some fun appearances in Tracy venues and local events. Michael Serrato (lead vocals/bass), James Santiago (vocals/lead guitar), Willie Serrato Jr. (rhythm guitar), Eddie Serrato (keyboards), Richard Guiterrez(keyboards), and Mike Clark on Drums.
