Remembering the Musical Side of Soupy Sales
This morning I was saddened by of the passing of Soupy Sales at age 83. He was best known as a host of a children's show on WNEW-TV in the mid 1960s, but he also had a radio gig on WNBC in the 1980s. Soupy appeared at the WABC Rewound Cruise in June 2007, but it was obvious that he was in failing health. Soupy had a 45 RPM hit in 1965 called the Mouse. It only peaked at #76 nationally, but was a number 10 hit in New York City. Please see the video below.
