Jerry Keller, co-writer of "Little Waterfront Girl". Jerry had a smash hit in 1959 with "Here Comes Summer" on Kapp Records, a song he wrote and recorded. I first met Jerry in 1959 in Cedar Lake, Indiana at a ballroom on the lake. We were the warm-up band before the main artists came on stage. The only acts I remember on the main bill is Jerry and Dickey Doo and the Don'ts. The next time I saw him was in New York when we got together after I found and wanted to record "Little Waterfront Girl". He is a great guy.
