Bobby Darin

Well Wishes from His Friends

On August 7, 1959, Bobby Darin opened at the Legendary Cloister nightclub In LA. To wish him luck, his friends from Csida-Grean Associates back in Manhattan made a short recording which was sent to him on opening night. It was recorded in Joe Csidas office.

The friends heard on the recording included: Harriet ("Not yet Harriet!") Wasser, who organized the get-together; Joe Csida, Bobby's former manager; Ed Burton, Bobby's former manager and "bowling instructor;" Frank Barone, Bobby's attorney; Bob (Hutch) Davie, a composer and arranger for the agency; Judy Tannen, a friend and associate of Steve and Eydie; Jerry Weintrab, who went on to produce numerous movies in Hollywood; Lois, a secretary for the agency; Bob Steinberg, an accountant at the agency; fellow teen idol and friend Jimmie Rodgers and close friend and classmate Don Kirshner and his wife Sheila.
