As I said last year on his birthday, Phil Phillips is one of the greats. A one-hit wonder, maybe, but what a hit it was. His recording (with the Twilights) of "Sea of Love" never gets old. You can hear about 45 seconds of it here, and there are some other interesting records to look at while you're scrolling down.
It's also the birthday of Max Shulman, one of my favorite writers, author of the Dobie Gillis books, the source of the TV series. If you haven't read the books, you're missing a real treat.
