Buddy Clark birthday July 26

Buddy Clark (July 26, 1911 - October 1, 1949) was a popular American singer in the 1930s and 1940s. In 1946 he signed with Columbia Records and scored his biggest hit with the song "Linda" recorded in November of that year, but hitting its peak in the following spring. ( Linda was the daughter of a friend, later in life becoming a prominent spokeswoman for vegetarianism and animal rights, and broke a generation of teenage girls' hearts when she married Beatle Paul McCartney.)
On October 1, 1949, just as the 38 year old was reaching new heights of popularity (and was scheduled for his weekly appearance on The Carnation Contented Hour the following evening), Clark and five other friends rented a small plane to attend a Stanford vs. Michigan college football game. On the way back to Los Angeles after the game, the plane ran out of fuel, lost altitude and crashed on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles. Clark didn't survive the crash.
