Subject: RE: Bobby Darin tribute and Buddy Deane
It is great to hear from you. Bobby was one of a kind. I never met him...but because of my association with Buddy Deane for the better part of a decade, he and I discussed over that period, many anecdotes from his personal friendship with Mr. Darin which I found very interesting.
In 2004, I was privileged to narrate Mr. Deane's life story in a TV special produced by Maryland Public Television. In that production is a fascinating story about Bobby's early appearance on the Buddy Deane TV program in 1958 as told by one of the original cameramen...PLUS...about 35-40 seconds of 8 mm COLOR footage shot of Mr. Darin on the set while performing live on TV. Let me know if you would like more information about these tidbits.
All of us in the Ultimate Oldies Family will be glad to assist in whatever way we can to honor one of the all-time multi-talented performers of music, stage, and screen.
