Lucyilove Posted October 29, 2012 Report Share Posted October 29, 2012 Remember that I LOVE LUCY episode in Hollywood where Lucy wants to be discovered and bellboy Bobby suggests a few methods that worked for others: Lana Turner at a soda fountain, Dorothy Lamour in an elevator, and Champ Butler parking cars? We all know Lana and Dorothy but Champ Butler??? I always thought maybe Bobby had fumbled his line and said the wrong name but it turns out there really was a Champ Butler (1926-1992) - he was one of those hitless singers who were all over television in the early 1950's but it appears he disappeared from fame somewhere midway into the decade and left little more of a pop culture memory than his name being dropped on an ILL episode. Well hold on to your bobbysocks, he's back, like nearly everybody else who ever recorded anything, on a cd reissue of vintage tracks: http://www.amazon.com/Yonder-Recordings-ORIGINAL-RECORDINGS-REMASTERED/dp/B009SLANRW/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1351470831&sr=1-1&keywords=Champ+Butler Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
