Description

The Arena Twins with Dave Archard around 1958. Dave Archard became a Top 40 radio deejay at Tampa's WALT-AM 1110 in 1958 and moved to St. Petersburg's WTSP the next year, where he remained until 1963, when he moved to Miami's WFUN.

Sammy and Andrew "Andy" Arena, who performed together as The Arena Twins, were among Tampa's first recording artists in the late 1950s. Born in Tampa, Florida, the brothers entertained audiences since the age of 14, when they first took the stage at the Cuban Club's "Fiesta in Tampa." In 1958, they signed with Kapp Records and released six singles, before signing with Columbia Records in 1960.
