This petite, blue-eyed lovely lady was destined to become a member of what was, for a time, the most famous song-and-dance group in America. In Dean Martin's own words: "In the spring of 1968, Greg Garrison, the producer of my television show, got a notion to put together a group of 12 beautiful young girls who could sing and dance the songs that were popular in the 1920s and 1930s". Susan McIver, with the auburn hair, was one of those girls. The Golddiggers would appear on TV, go on national tours, and they released an LP record album with their theme song, "It Seems Like Yesterday" and 11 other oldies. In 1970, The Golddiggers were in London, and their show gave American audiences their first look at Marty Feldman. The Golddiggers got their own half-hour syndicated series in 1971. Susan McIver (who had now married and changed her name to Susan Lund; they would later break up) was the fan favorite of the 12-member group, and was picked by Dino and Greg Garrison to be one of the top 4 chosen to be a "Ding-a-Ling" Sister. The Golddiggers went on another national tour in America. However, when they went south of the border to Mexico in 1972, things went awry. Susan said their passports were taken, and the girls were not being paid for their performances. They got back to the USA in a hurry. Susan would make several TV and movie appearances through the 1970s, until 1981.
