Sale Price $378.00
Singer Tommy Sands signed this document in 1960 to say that he agreed to let Roncom Productions broadcast his appearance on Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall at any time during the 1960-1961 season.
Document signed "Tommy Sands" in black ink and by representatives of Grace Music Company and Roncom Productions, Inc. in blue ink. 1 page, 8½x11. Nov. 18, 1960. Addressed to Roncom Productions, Inc., New York City. Sands signed this document to confirm a previous agreement that he had with Grace Music and Roncom about his appearance that day on Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall. According to this agreement, Roncom could give "original network broadcast" of Sands' appearance at any time during the 1960-1961 season. This appears to be connected to a threatened strike by the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists at that time. Sands, born in Chicago, Illinois in 1937, is an American singer and actor. He learned to play guitar at seven and within a year was performing twice weekly on a Shreveport, Louisiana radio station. Colonel Tom Parker signed him to RCA Records and, in 1957, starred in an episode of Kraft Television Theatre as a singer similar to Elvis Presley. He played Teenage Crush on the show, which was turned into a single and peaked at No. 3 on the charts. He also acted in several movies, including Sing, Boy, Sing (1958), Babes in Toyland (1961), The Longest Day (1962) and Ensign Pulver (1964). Lightly toned and creased. Paper clip impression in top left corner. Otherwise in fine condition.
