Today’s Tidbit | King of the Wild Frontier

Fess Parker passed away today. And sadly, with his passing, a little piece of my personal history passed away, too. The first record I ever had was the “Ballad of Davy Crockett”. It was sung by Fess Parker and was the version from the Disneyland TV Production of “Davy Crockett”, in which he starred. I always enjoyed playing it on our old flip-up record player and singing along.

With my name being David, my dad would sometimes call me “Crockett”. I still have that record. It’s a “78″ and I no longer have a way of playing it. I’m glad I found a digital version of it several years ago.
