Bobby Rydell

Our guest for this episode is entertainer Bobby Rydell.

Rydell made a name for himself in the late 50's through the mid-60's with a long series of hit singles but, even while being a teen idol, he was branching out into singing at the Copacabana, in film and on television variety shows.

In 2012, he narrowly escaped death when a kidney and liver were found for him at the last minute. 

Rydell tells these stories and many more in his new book Teen Idol on the Rocks: A Tale of Two Chances.

 

Please note that, at two points in the interview, the phone line becomes slightly faulty. This clears up within a minute.
