Lord Buckley appeared on the TV show “You Bet Your Life” hosted by Groucho Marx. This episode was telecast near Spring 1955.
At the 6:28 mark of this show Lord Buckley utters the word ‘Groovy’ years before it became part of the popular lexicon.
A wonderful example of TV and the shows that use to light up the tube.
Oliver Trager is the author of the definitive Lord Buckley biography “Dig Infinity – The Life and Art of Lord Buckley”.
On April 7th, 2007 the Official ‘Lord Buckley Birthday Bash’ was held at The Bowery Poetry Club. Produced by Oliver Trager and featuring David Amram and his band along with Tom Calagna performing Lord Buckley.
Great fun honoring one of the world’s most original performers.
