JFK Birthday Salute
May 19, 1962

Steve Blauner was there!
"Bobby sang a few songs, but the
only one I remember is Mack.
His intro went like this. He said his
birthday was coming up and he
hadn't gotten a gift from the President
-the crowd roared.

Even Jack Benny grabbed me in the
wings and wanted to know what he
had said that would get such a big laugh.
Bobby then said to the President, 'But
this is my gift to you.' and sang Mack."

Thanks "Boom Boom!"
