      Hi!

      Thanks for the link, it is appreciated:)

      I just figured since we have so many downloaded sides on the site that maybe we could download some of his, along with adding him to the band list?

      Take care!

      Robbi

      Oswald George "Ozzie" Nelson (March 20,1906 - June 3,1975) was an American
      entertainer who originated and starred in The Adventures of Ozzie and
      Harriet radio and television series with his wife and two sons.

      Ozzie started his entertainment career as a band leader. He formed and led
      the Ozzie Nelson Band, and had some initial limited success. He made his own
      'big break' in 1930. The New York Daily Mirror ran a poll of its readers to
      determine their favorite band. He knew that news vendors got credit from the
      newspaper for unsold copies by returning the front page and discarding the
      rest of the issue. Gathering hundreds of discarded newspapers, the band
      filled out ballots in their favor. They edged out Paul Whiteman and were
      pronounced the winners. From 1930 through the 1940s Nelson's band recorded
      prolifically´┐Żfirst on Brunswick, then Vocalion and finally Bluebird. In 1934
      Nelson enjoyed success with his hit song, "Over Somebody Else's Shoulder"
      which he introduced. Nelson was their primary vocalist (and from August,
      1932) duets with Harriet Hilliard. Nelson's calm, easy vocal style was
      popular on records and radio and quite similar to son Rick's voice.

      In October 1935 he married the band's vocalist Harriet Hilliard. The couple
      had two children. David, born in 1936, became an actor and director. Eric
      ("Ricky"), born in 1940, became an actor and singer.
