Not that Cliff Robertson. You know, the one who was flying directly over the World Trade Center on 9/11, and was also incidentally a famous actor.
Ted Weems was a popular bandleader; quite a big thing for him to show up in SoDak. Right? Wikipedia says that "the hits dried up in 1947," one of those inexplicable things that just happens to an act for no good reason anyone can name. Except, perhaps, the lack of good songs. Ted eventually became a DJ in Memphis - then moved into management at Holiday Inn. Really.
