PAT BOONE and BOBBY KAYThe two popular performers signed opposite sides of this album leaf for George R. Sanders Autograph Note signed: "George/enjoyed it/Encore! Encore!/Warm wishes/Pat Boone", 6½x6½ card affixed to a 7x9¼ album leaf (along with a 1¼x1¼ color photo). And on verso: "Bobby Kay", 3½x2 card with printed text: "Bobby Kay/a Clown/Advance Promotion: Ringling Brothers - Barnum & Bailey Circus." 3½x3½ newspaper photo of Kaye in a clown suit at a typewriter is attached below the card. The George referred to in the note is none other than George R. Sanders ; originally a disc jockey, he became a prominent radio/TV interview host, first in Los Angeles and later in Portland. Pat Boone (b. 1934)is an immensely popular recording star who was most popular in the late 1950s. Among the biggest of his 38 Top 40 hits were "Don't Forbid Me", "April Love" and "Love Letters in the Sand" (all from 1957). Hehosted a TV show (1957-1960) and appeared in 15 feature films, including Bernadine and April Love(1957). His smooth style and clean cut good looks appealed not only to many teens, but also to parents appalled by Elvis Presley and the rebellious side of rock and roll. Most of his later successes came in Christian music, but his album No More Mr. Nice Guy (1997), a tongue in cheek cover of heavy metal hits, angered many of his religious fans who failed to get the joke. Bobby Kay (1908-1983) began his career as a circus clown in 1923. The versatile Kaye also served as a publicist and advance man. In 1971, he joined the staff of the Ringling Brothers - Barnum & Bailey Clown College, teaching makeup techniques. Fold crease through Boone's signature. Ink numbers (unknown hand) at lower corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
