The Afternoon Delights was a Boston-based vocal studio quartet, including Rebecca Hall, Janet Powell, Robalee Barnes, and Suzanne Boucher.[1] In 1981, they released a parody of the ABC soap opera General Hospital called "General Hospi-Tale."[2] This peaked at number 23 on the R&B charts and number 33 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Soon after, they released an EP, but it had very little success and the group quickly disbanded. General Hospital revisited the group's iconic single in an episode that aired on April 28, 2013, as part of the series' 50th anniversary.
