Hello, Folks:

Do any of us remember that song played every Halloween since it came out in 1962? "The Monster Mash" is a silly, campy & catchy tune done in a Boris Karloff-type voice.

Refrain:

He did the mash
He did the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
He did the mash
It caught on in a flash
He did the mash
He did the monster mash

I mention this because the originator of this "one hit wonder," the man who not only wrote it but became infamous for "singing" it, died today of leukemia at the age of 69. Probably not a big deal to most people but when I heard this evening of his passing, it did give me pause.

I interviewed Bobby in 1991 in a tour bus on the banks of the great Mississippi River. It was in a teeny town called Trempeaulau, Wisconsin, & he was a kind, sweet bear of a man. I thought it worth the moment right now to remember him. Anyone who may be interested can visit the following link to read my interview:

Bobby will now do the big Monster Mash in the sky!


Blessings -- Linda
