    Next to Dion, this guy is one of my favorite artist of the 50's. Read that he was born Frederick Anthony Picariello Jr. on December 4th 1940. I think his biggest songs were Tallahassee Lassie,Palisades Park, and my personal favorite Transistor Sister. Otherwise I do not know much about him, maybe you guys and gals can help me with that XD. As you can see below I posted his songs. I do not own the videos and did not make them of course. Sorry if the sound is rough XD. Enjoy the Music! :D *1-26-13 Fixed videos.

    The first song I heard from is my favourite version of chattonooga shoe shine boy by Freddy, originally by Red Foley and then Pat Boone of course.

    Me neither. The only song I know by him is Tallahassee Lassie, which was good except for the annoying "WOO!"s.
