Periodic Fun For Baby Boomers - In This Episode:
Dee Dee Sharp: Mashed Potato Time

Dee Dee Sharp is one of the first musical artists that I can recall capturing my attention. Along with people like Mary Wells, I waited with anticipation for her appearances on "Bandstand" and other shows. She was only 17 years old in 1962 when she burst onto the US music scene.

"Mashed Potato Time" clocked in at #3 for that year on the Billboard Charts. Her other hits included "Gravy" and "Ride". Lest we forget, here is Dee Dee from a 1965 performance.

PLEASE NOTE: Videos do go missing on the web, but lots more of Dee Dee can be found here:
