More information

Carter's father, Colby Carter, is a former antiques dealer of Irish American descent. Her mother, Juana Córdova, is a Mexican immigrant who previously worked in the telephone industry. Although Carter does not speak Spanish, she understands it well and is proud of her Mexican heritage. Carter grew up an avid reader of the Wonder Woman comic books. She went to Globe High School in Globe, Arizona and Arcadia High School in Phoenix.

Carter performed in a band during high school called "Just Us", which consisted of a marimba, a Congo drum, an acoustic guitar, and a stand-up bass played by another girl. When she was 17 Lynda joined two of her cousins in another band called "The Relatives". Actor Gary Burghoff was the band's drummer. The group opened at the Sahara Hotel and Casino lounge in Las Vegas, Nevada for three months. Because Lynda was under 21 she had to enter the casino through the kitchen. She attended Arizona State University but after being voted the "most talented" student she dropped out in order to pursue a career in music. In 1970 Lynda sang with "The Garfin Gathering with Lynda Carter". Their first performance was in a brand new San Francisco hotel that had no sidewalk entrance yet built. Because of this they played to mostly the janitors and whatever hotel guests parked their cars in the underground garage. She eventually returned to Arizona in 1972.
