babyWhen I think of Bruce Frederick's birthday, I am always reminded of what a wonderful, playful tiny baby he was, and how he blew out his candle, with only a little help from his friend, Little Miami Stevie. He wasn't bothered at all when nobody jumped out of the cake! Plenty of time for that. 

people would jump onstage and grab me by the head and scream, ‘tilly! bootlegs!'"
