This week in 1958: “The 4th Show Of Stars” features Frankie Lymon, Eddie Cochran, The Coasters, The Royal Drifters and Sterling Mossman, backed by Joe Mullan and His Orchestra. The shows draw near-capacity crowds in three days at the old Civic Auditorium. Ticket prices are $1.80 for reserved seats and $1.20 general admission. Eddie Sherman writes in his Honolulu Advertiser column: “A talented bundle of dynamite burst upon the stage of the Civic Auditorium last night in the person of 15-year-old recording star Frankie Lymon. Handling center stage with the assurance of a veteran performer, Frankie belies his age with a definite command of his audience.” Fun fact: Frankie, Eddie Cochran and The Coasters have since been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Mo’ fun facts: At the urging of his manager, I let Frankie drive my car around the radio station parking lot so he could learn to drive … Learn he did, right into the sales manager’s new Ford Edsel! … And the No. 1 record in Hawaii isYou Are My Destiny by Paul Anka
