THE SWEET SOUNDS OF A VIDEO VETERAN - ANDY WILLIAMS PASSES AWAY - CIRCA. SEPTEMBER 25, 2012
Andy Williams passed away, last week.
While most folks under 25 may not know him or his work, he provided some of the softest, sweetest music to the American Soundtrack of the 1960's.
He was a fixture on NBC from his earliest work on THE STEVE ALLEN TONIGHT SHOWto his long-running variety series, THE ANDY WILLIAMS SHOW.
Many of those meticulously produced shows have been re-purposed for airing on PBS Stations ,airing during pledge drives.
Williams hit recording of Henry Mancini's evocative MOON RIVER, from the 1961's BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S.was Williams signature and his theme song.
Andy Williams easy sound didn't always top the charts , but THE ANDY WILLIAMS SHOW entertained millions of people week after week, season after season and to me , that's a great epitaph.
Here from the ANDYWILLIAMS 7864 YOU TUBE site, is a sample of Andy Williams affable and relaxed television show. R.I.P.
