Funky Nassau and Fraternity Brother Harvey Nassau

On tonights 60s 70s show Bob Radil played Funky Nassau by one hit wonder Beginning of the End which charted at 94 in May 1971.  It eventually peaked at #15 on the Billboard chart.  Anyway the song always reminded me of Harvey Nassau who was my Sigma Beta Phi fraternity brother at CCNY.

I remember Harvey lived in Rockaway, was heavy set, and had a girlfriend name Enid whom he eventually married.  He went to medical school in Philadelphia and became a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.  I hadn't seen or heard anything about Harvey in over 40 years.

After I heard the song I Googled Harvey Nassau and found out that he passed away in 2006 at the age of 57.  

This is very similar to my story about Valerie and the Ronnie Dyson hit,

Strange things happen in this world.
