The Rat Pack has inspired movies, television shows, songs...you name it. How many of us have thought about that group and wondered what were they REALLY like behind the curtains. We hear LOTS of rumors about these fun-loving party carousing drinkers but how much of that is true. Now, we could sit and debate for hours but there's one thing you cant deny, their comradery was contagious! If you go back and listen to the banter between this group of wise-cracking buddies you feel like you are at a party with them instead of listening to a concert. And I guess that was actually true. Their concerts were just big parties with a guest list of total strangers!!
This video says it all. (Please keep in mind the "times" as Sammy takes a few jokes that wouldn't be proper today.) But these guys had a friendship that made you feel like you were part of the group, one of the guys, if you will. They represented a time when drinking on stage in a tux wasn't an issue...it was all about your talent. And brother they had it.
If you're a big Rat Pack fan or just a fan of Dino then we have a great show that YOU need to hear. This Sunday March 1st we will be interviewing Maria Lauren and her sister Linda Eichberg who were on Dean Martin's show in the late 60's. They were members of the beautiful Golddiggers. The stories these gals can tell of Dean and the backstage antics are ture CLASSICS!!
This clip shows how Dean used to laugh through every sketch...he could never make it through without cracking up. I loved this show as a kid. Dino was a true treasure. He was also a fun guy EVEN when things went wrong. Check this clip out. What a guy!!
Be sure to join Maria and Linda for all their stories of the Rat Pack and Dean. Also, we hear there may be a few suprise guests along the way!!
That's this Sunday March 1 and 7pm EST. Just go to www.talkshoe.com to log into "Wait, I Know This!".
