Frankie Valli and Bob Gaudio Video from TODAY Show Appearance

October 11th, 2007

On the TODAY Show’s blog, producer Tammy Fine reflects on the happy memories of her childhood listening to the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons:

It seems like yesterday that I was sitting in the backseat of the family station wagon, squished between my sisters, listening to the local AM station in Wilmington, Delaware, and hearing my mother singing along to the songs.

There were the Neils (Sedaka and Diamond). There was Barry Manilow. But the king, the one that had us all aiming for our best falsetto, was Frankie Valli. Those were songs that brought a smile to our mom’s face and made us all feel happy.

Upon meeting Frankie Valli and Bob Gaudio today, Fine says:

You couldn’t meet two nicer men. And in this age of dollars and cents, it’s remarkable that they continue to be partners after 50 years together, sharing all their profits without a contract — based on nothing more than a handshake.

  1. So glad to see Frankie and Bob are doing so much promotion for this great CD. Interestingly, Bob says that his favorite composition is “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore” which Frankie recorded in 1965, but it didn’t make Billboard’s Hot 100 with it. (It “bubbled under” at #128.) The Walker Brothers took it to #13 the following year. Go figure!

    Frankie gave the standard answer about his favorite song. “They’re all my children and I love them equally!”
