Ray Charles Ft. In Dutch Pop Magazine Rooster (1963)

The Dutch Beeld- & Geluid-Archief keeps a 'fotofilm' (document ID 49249) from the 1963 'pop magazine' Rooster, that aired on 19 April 1963 on AVRO tv, hosted by Lonneke Hoogland and Wilco Meyer.

This newspaper article makes clear that the item in Rooster was a special Ray Charles profile, on the occasion of his concerts on May 11 in Amsterdam and The Hague. The profile was ridiculously short, a TV-critic remarked the following day.

For Dutch readers of this blog: In the same episode of Rooster Elly de Wit performed Wini, Wini, Carla van Someren sang Mr. Casanova, and Johnny Lion & The Jumping Jewels with The Bibbits performed Blame It On The Bossa Nova.
