Buddy Clark on There Goes That Song Again

Today, Brian is featuring “Buddy Clark’s duets with female vocalists”. Buddy Clark was a very popular singer in the 1930s and 40s but whose life was tragically cut short in 1949 in a plane crash. Among Buddy’s many recordings are several duets with popular female vocalists: Doris Day, Dinah Shore, Pearl Baily and Hildegarde.   Then at 3pm, Brian is featuring one of the most popular female vocalists of the late 1950s and the 1960s, Connie Francis.   Connie’s career was initially guided by her father, so perhaps it was not surprising that several of her earliest hits were revivals of songs.  Her first hit in 1958, “Who’s sorry now” was originally a hit for Isham Jones in 1923. Other revivals followed. So it was not surprising that in 1968, following the success of the movie “Bonnie and Clyde” about the two infamous bank-robbers in the 1930s, Connie was inspired to produce a whole album of songs from the 1930s which she called “Connie and Clyde”.   This week you’ll hear songs from that album.
