Tobin Matthews & Fess Parker (Davy Crockett)
This was a real thrill for me!! When Fess Parker starred in the hit TV show "Davy Crockett", I was in 8th grade. Now, about 7 years later, I'm in Detroit, Michigan doing a couple of live shows with Fess Parker on the bill. I was like a kid at Christmas, the same kind of excitement. We were doing a U.S. Marines "Toys For Tots Jamboree", with the cooperation of WXYZ radio and television. We performed for over 22,000 people who attended the outdoor shows at Edgewater Park.
