Alan O'Day, songwriter/singer (Undercover Angel, Angie Baby, Rock'n'Roll Heaven etc.), and way before that, Musical Director of Wild Guitar, co-writer & bandmate of Arch,was fortunate to attend this huge autograph event.
Alan &his beautiful wife, made the rounds of stars past & present,but their "home base" was the Arch Hall table where they traded "showbiz" stories & jokes with Richard Kiel (http://www.richardkiel.com/), Burr Middleton (http://movies.nytimes.com/person/146559/Burr-Middleton), & got to meet Johnny Legend (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Legend). Alan, was delighted to see the excitement over Arch's appearance, Alan says, I'll tell you what my modest old friend won't, that according to the show's organizers, his inclusion in the lineup generated the most buzz of any celebrity there!
BTW, among the items for sale was the Arch Hall Jr. & the Archers CD (Norton Records CED 307), which consists largely of tracks from reel-to-reel tapes I had saved in my garage for 45 years, plus a huge gem of detailed liner notes, live tracks of the Archers, & audio clips from Wild Guitar, Eegah, & The Sadist.
Alan also said "For me, this event was a special reunion, & I hope its just the beginning of similar celebrations of Arch & cohorts". "Looks like he's starting to get the recognition he deserves". GO BUD EAGLE!!!
