Okay…somebody better pinch me, because I think I’m about to fall out of my seat. Harry Belafonte just walked into the room. Excuse me, “Geechy-Dan” just walked into the room.
This guy was my FAVORITE character, in that old Bill Cosby movie “Uptown Saturday Night”. And the minute his assistant introduced us, I fell out laughing (laughing on the inside, because I didn’t want Mr. Harry to think that I was a kook with a microphone).
So my friend Harry and I (sic) sat there talking for about an hour. You know him from the famous “Banana Boat” tune; DAAAAYO…..DAY AY AY YO…Daylight comes and me wan’go home.
