Met Redd in New York City. A friend, Barbara Lacey, had a club
next to Carnegie Hall and Redd worked there. Then I met him
again in San Francisco at the Circle Star Theatre. I was in
charge of the artist relations, so we were able to hang out
after the show. he was booked for seven days. Some years later,
bumped in to Barbara Lacey in Hollywood, who was promoting
Redd's Birthday Party at the Schubert Theater in Century City.
She hired me to help call the celebrities, inviting them to the
show. I remember Freddy Prinz was one of the many who performed
that night. It was really a gala affair.
