It was Easter weekend, 1960, and young Linda Ferrino was pouting – big time.
She and her young-at-heart mom had both been smitten by Bobby Rydell when he sang “Kissin’ Time” on American Bandstand. It had even been her mom’s idea to watch.
Now her mom was insisting that they couldn’t attend Bobby’s Steel Pier show, because they were expecting Easter guests at their Jersey shore house.
