Sorry I missed seeing the Williams show with Valle, but even sorrier that Valle missed bopping Bongo Boy--might have knocked some sense into him, might have revived Brando the amazing actor in place of that buffoon whose business card read: "Marlon the Amazing--Fat Jester Fool."

Yesterday's comments have prodded me into this guilty-pleasures admission: Andy Williams' Hits album on Cadence is great! (Might be right in the Myers wheelhouse.) Top songs, offering Pop, Folk, Easy Listening, even a Rock tune or two, not to mention excellent vocals from the at-all-times nice guy. (Too good for show biz, maybe, even with all his success; certainly too good for that gun-totin' French girl Claudine he was hitched up with... until ze silly jeune fille made a "Killying" in ze ski beeznez.)
