The Magic of Bobby Darin

A 30 episode radio special hosted by Jimmy Scalia
with special guests Steve Blauner and Harriet Wasser.

Bobby Darin archivist Jimmy Scalia has created a 30 episode radio special tribute to Bobby, complete with interviews, history and songs. The program was broadcast on The MARK & KYLE SHOW on WDPN 1310 AM in Alliance, Ohio every Friday morning between 6 AM & 10 AM. We have been given permission by Jimmy to share sound file samples of the interview. These are a few samples of the show.

For more information on how to purchase the entire set of these interviews email Jimmy at and visit Jimmy Scalia's Official Website

Technical Note: Please keep in mind that due to time and space contraint on the internet, and legal worries of sharing too much, the music portions have been edited and the quality is subpar. The important part is the sample interviews which Jimmy has given us. This is not how the program sounds on the radio, these are only samples. If you have a slow connection you might have better success saving the files (clicking on links, selecting "save target," and downloading to your hard drive) for listening off line.
