Update 6/16/2016: REMEMBERING STEVE BLAUNER . . .


Today we remember Steve Blauner, a successful man in many facets of the entertainment industry.

Above all his accomplishments, his cherished achievement was managing and being a key player in the career of Bobby Darin. It started in the beginning with the early ATCO recordings in 1957 until Darin's death in 1973. Steve would refer to this as "The Comet Ride." Steve went on to oversee anything Bobby Darin until his own passing.

Darin and Blauner were two if a kind, filled with a tenacious zest, character, love, respect and the ability to be profoundly accurate.
