Julie Budd has experienced the world of entertainment from two perspectives.
A child prodigy, Julie was brought to the attention of Merv Griffin. She would appear more than 100 times on the Griffin show – and appear on every other variety show of the time. Ed Sullivan (pictured), Bob Hope, Carol Burnett, George Burns, Bill Cosby, Johnny Carson and Liberace make-up a short list of co-stars from that era.
Julie was appearing in-concert and in showrooms with the greatest names in the business. Among her mentors, a singer named Sinatra.
The entertainment scene has changed. Those great names have passed-on, taking with them the brand of entertainment that, I believe, you embrace.
And Julie Budd looks forward.
Today, Julie brings her one-woman show to concert halls around the world, The Palladium in London, The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and everywhere in between. She appears with major symphonies and continues to record.
Julie’s latest CD, The New Classics, is acclaimed as her best work to date. And Julie is in the process of writing about her days as a child prodigy; working with the names listed above among many more.
The woman I have come to call my friend is warm, intelligent, funny, optimistic and excited about the possibilities that come with each new day. These many traits will resonate with you next week.
Julie Budd will join us in-studio. We’ll talk about the entertainment world in which she was raised and that landscape as it is today. A student and fan of Frank’s recording legacy, Miss Budd will assess the work and select Sinatra performances that validate her perspective. We will play her wonderful music and reveal the coolest surprise imaginable!
