the google brings up a talking poodle with a pretty good resemblance in 1964. I hope you took a lot of treats to the interview. Is listomania going to be animals on record?
Alas no, but it's still gonna be fun....
Those neckties look like 1964.
Yeah, I can totally imagine seeing a talking poodle on Ed Sullivan and thinking 'I gotta get his record.'
Ken Colman and the talking poodle. Smack dab in the middle of Beatlemania - February 1964. Perfect act for Broadway Danny Rose. What they needed was a gimmick. They coulda been as big as The Beatle Barkers.VR
There's a mention of Ken Coleman and his Talking poodle in an April 1964 issue of Billboard (see https://books.google.com/books?id=80QEAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA36&lpg=PA36&dq=epic+signs+talking+dog&source=bl&ots=i2f8qcWhQn&sig=lCwS1N5SHcwXormdZFoYxQn8VtQ&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjjtoLp7PrLAhXGuhQKHa9OAngQ6AEIMTAF#v=onepage&q=epic%20signs%20talking%20dog&f=false) on page 36, column 4, under CHICAGO, and close to the bottom of the page.Steve, did you have the commercial release or a promo copy? The promo copy's worth big bucks, especially is signed!
