Alpert had already formed his own label, Carnival Records, with partner Jerry Moss, and had released a vocal solo single as Dore Alpert; he used this label, later renamed A&M, to release the new single.It was an instant hit, and both Alpert's career and the label's took off.By the early '60s he'd built his own home studio.Success: Alpert's friend Sol Lake had written an instrumental entitled "Twinkle Star," which the trumpeter began to record in his studio, overdubbing his horn with very slight delay in order to create the illusion of a full brass section.He gained quite a reputation on the horn, performing during his post-graduate Army stint and again with the USC Trojan Marching Band in college.He also worked as a songwriter and movie extra, learning all aspects of the entertainment business.Had to think about both "Dating Game" clues (what a weird, wonderful little clue pairing that was).

Host hands the card to Doleen who immediately tosses it over “her” shoulder Doleen- O. (Cheering from the audience) Doleen- Well, this is a very difficult decision because you each had such wonderful answers (all the while shaking head “NO” to the audience), but after careful thought, I choose bachelor #1!!!!!
