Description
Autographed card, "To Pat" from singer-songwriter Johnny Tillotson (b. 1939) The autograph is accompanied by a newspaper clipping (once attached) advertising the performer's appearance at Washington D.C.'s Casino Royale Theatre, where the card was signed.
Tillotson's biggest successes came during the teen-pop era of the early nineteen sixties, where the native Floridian scored hits with songs such as "Poetry in Motion" (1960) and "It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin" (1962.) He also sang the theme song for the popular teen television comedy, "Gidget" (1965.)
