Neil Wood of Bob Kelly and the Pikes.
From Bob Kelly: This is from the Texas Theatre in Denton on March 8,
1957. I have no idea who the other musicians are so
if any of you recognize anyone, let me know.
There was a newspaper article with it but it wouldn't
scan good enough for you to read it.
The MC for the show was Jim Hampton - F Troop,
Sling Blade, and many other movies and TV shows.
Also, on the show were Wade Moore and Dick Penner
who later recorded at Sun Records and wrote the song
"Ooby Dooby" for Roy Orbison.
Kind of strange that we would all have been on the same
Fraternity Benefit show for Hungarian Relief - that's what
the article said. Jim a Kappa Alpha, Wade and Dick were Lambdi Chi's,
and of course Bill, Neil and I were Pi Kappa Alpha.
I don't even remember the show - but, I do remember the green
shirts that we were wearing. Yes, they were a bright green
made out of really shiney material. My Mother made them and
notice the 3/4 length sleeves. - Bob "Git It" Kelly - firstname.lastname@example.org
Bill Haley, Jr.
