Jerry Brandow and his band played for Jill Corey on that shoot. Jerry asked me to accompany him to a location shoot to meet Howard Koch. Lee Bowmen and Jill Corey were shooting a scene. After the shoot we all walked back to our cars. I met Howard Koch and Lee Bowman. Jill remembered me from Pittsburgh. We had dated when she was working in small clubs around the area. That night we met at a recording studio and they recorded Jerry and Jill for the shoot the next day. Jill gave Jerry her arrangement and Jerry tried to fake it (Jerry and his band were a popular group at a jazz club, the "Pin Up," on Miami Beach - He also danced on Broadway with Steve and Nick Condos, Martha Raye's ex-husband)), but he did not read music. Jill caught on, but worked it out with Jerry and they did the recording. The next day Jerry and I went to the Club 21 in a hotel on 21st street on Miami Beach, the location for the music shoot.. During the breaks Jill and I chatted and watched the Pittsburgh Pirates win the World series. She married Don Hoak the Pirates pitcher. Kaye Master was also in that show. Rocky Graziano was also on that episode. Jerry and Rocky were friends and the three of us would go out drinking after the shoot. Jerry was in a scene where he falls out of a row boat. Jerry couldn't swim but did the stunt and then almost drowned before they got him out.
