July, 1968.
Outside the Hallmark store on Main Street, U.S.A. In November and December of 1968, these Dapper Dans appeared on national television two times as contestants on Your All American College Show, a college talent show featuring celebrity judges and hosted by Dennis James. They were recommended for this show by Richard Carpenter. On both the semifinals (which they won) and the finals they sang "Mame," arranged by Mahlon and orchestrated by Ivan Ditmars and His Orchestra. Sometime after this they were singing at La Costa Country Club (near Oceanside, California) when a guest at the club yelled out, "Do Mame!" It was Dennis James.
