Teenaged Wellington pop singer Rochelle Vinsen landed a recording contract with HMV in 1963 after a meeting with a bogus A&R man who claimed to work for the company. The Onslow College sixth former had made the semi-finals of NZBC talent show Have A Shot singing with school band The Silhouettes. The day after the episode, Vinsen wagged school and received a call from someone saying he was an A&R man who had seen her on TV.
