Buddy Hackett this week

In tribute to the passing of Buddy Hackett on June 30th, Bubbles in the Think Tank will feature the soundtrack of one of his funniest musicals.

In 1964′s I Had a Ball, he played Garside the Great in the Coney Island-set show about Runyonesque characters and a crystal ball that tells the future. Karen Morrow, Rosetta LeNoire and Richard Kiley were his co-stars in the show that ran six months and spawned a cast album (as many short-lived B-grade shows did in those days). Lloyd Richards directed.

Tune in to WAIF or listen on line live this Sunday night cum Monday Morning, July 6th.
