Norma Palm and Linda Robinson had a successful career performing as the Harmony Sweethearts in Takoma, Washington and Southern California before releasing records with Fabor Robison as Norma and Linda on Radio and Fabor Records. Their early-evening television show, "Harmony Sweetheart Time,” appeared on KTVW in Tacoma in the mid-1950s and the duo appeared on Lawrence Welk’s television show in 1958. Both played the guitar and Norma also played the accordion. Promoted by Linda’s father in Southern California, the Harmony Sweethearts joined the Town Hall Party, which was to Southern  California what the Grand Ole Opry was to Nashville. As a result, the Harmony Sweethearts shared the stage with Slim Willet, Slim Whitman, T. Texas Tyler, Ernest Tubb, Hank Snow, Tex Ritter, George Morgan, Rose and Joe Maphis, Ann Jones, Little Jimmy Dickens, the Collins Kids, Gene Autry, Ray Anthony, the Andrews Sisters and Roy Acuff. 

Though the Harmony Sweethearts had established a strong presence in the country market by the time they started working with Fabor Robison, the head of Fabor and Radio Records, Norma and Linda were growing up. So in some ways their Harmony Sweetheart persona became a limitation for more mature material. They continued to record novelty songs on Fabor and Radio, but their future was going to be limited without an adult presence.
