Thrilling, exciting, lvoley videos Thank you! I saw one of Frank Loesser's shows, The Most Happy Fella, back in the middle 1950's while spending Labor Day weekend in NYC. A longtime ago. I was also a fan of a very popular group at that time The Four Lads from Canada.Does anyone remember them? Got to meet them in 1953 and went to all of their shows, whenever, they were in the Pittsburgh area over the next few years. Got to be friends with them they recorded some of Frank Loesser's songs including What Are You Doing N Y E, and Standing On The Corner. Met up a few years back with the only original, Bernie Toorish, who nowlives near Cleveland.He still preforms with 3 others, sometimes on PBS 50's show!Thanks for all the info on Frank Loesser.
