(Interview Clip #5) Bobby Rydell On Hearing his First Hit “Kissin’ Time” on the Radio

He was only 17 when he had his first hit with “Kissin’ Time’ in 1959. He would go on to have 19 Top 40 hits including “Wild One” from 1960, Volare, his signature tune from the same year and “Forget Him” from 1963 – all three were million sellers. The thing is all artists remember the that very first hit. Bobby Rydell on where he was when he first heard “Kissin’ Time” on the radio. (Clip 006-B – :29)

Bobby Rydell certainly wasn’t an overnight sensation. He worked it hard as a kid travelling to hundreds of venues with his dad but when fame did hit it happend fast. Rydell was one of the biggest stars in the world in the late 50’s and early 60’s. We ask every artists we talk to about stage fright. So did Rydell have to deal with that?
