  1. Ron Jones (b: 2/15/43; Davenport, IA) was an oldies DJ in Chicago. He had 2nd Mobie 45 as Ronnie Jones & an earlier on Aurora. Prob not related to any other C-Notes.

    • According to an old note from Ron Jones I had in my files, the ‘C’ Notes were a black group backing him and that the recording was made in Chicago in 1963. This sounded like a one-time association.
