Happy Father’s Day!

June 1, 2011

My Dad, Francis Kosich in the Navy, 1947

I’m happy another Father’s Day comes with my Dad still around to celebrate it with this year.

In honor of Father’s Day I wanted to post the one song that says thank you Dad better than most, Eddie Fisher’s “Oh My Papa.”

The 1953 single reached #1 on the charts.  This particular version of it was from when I worked in Atlantic City and Eddie was performing at Trump Plaza in March of 1992.

The South Philadelphia born Fisher sold millions of records in his career and was married to Debbie Reynolds, Elizabeth Taylor and Connie Stevens.

He is the father of actresses Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) and Joely Fisher (sitcom Ellen.)  This marks the first Father’s Day since his passing in September, 2010.

Happy Father’s Day!
