BELATED R.I.P. FOR SAM BUTERA


I don't know how I missed this, but I didn't even realize until listening to the latest RadiOblivion yesterday that sax maniac Sam Butera had died earlier this month.

He was a driving force in Louis Prima's band. Butera, Prima and Keely Smith made some authentically crazy music. If I could travel back in time one of my first stops would be one of their shows in Vegas.

There's a decent obit HERE .
