    He looks happy there. Not a care in the world. I saw him on a summer replacement show called Stage Show with the Dorsey brothers. I believe it was his first network appearance. I was about eight years old but remember it vividly. He sang Tutti Frutti. My father said something about his going places. Is my memory playing tricks on me?
