Everybody knows Buddy Ebsen. I don't think there's one of our listeners who doesn't like Buddy Ebsen! ”

-Phlash Phelps, Morning Host, Sirius XM 60's on 6

As a  veteran singer-songwriter and accomplished musician who’s toured internationally for 20 years, Kiki was inspired to record and release the CD, “Scarecrow Sessions,” in tribute to her father’s vast career. Its debut was in time for Father’s Day. Songs from this album provide fans new insight into Buddy’s talents as a dramatic actor as well as accomplished dancer. Response to “Scarecrow Sessions” was so strong that she, along with brother Dustin, have created this showcase of personal stories and beautiful photo memories and magical songs in tribute to one of America’s most beloved true pioneers of the entertainment industry.

Actor Buddy Ebsen was perhaps best known for his television roles in the 1960s and 1970s. His fans, however, may not know as much about the first 30 years of his career, as a dancer on Broadway, and in early films. Were it not for fate, American children would have had 75 years to enjoy him in the role of the Scarecrow in “The Wizard of Oz.” It was the role of a lifetime, but it was also the one that got away.

Click on this video to learn how my brother Dustin and I came to create this multimedia show for you to enjoy.
Three videos from our New York City debut of "To Dad with Love". The amazing David Mann arrangements filled the air with magic. His woodwind playing is equally magnificent as his orchestral talents. Henry Hey on piano was spectacular. Laying the grooves was our awesome rhythm section, Clint de Ganon on drums and Conrad Korsch on acoustic bass. 
…a loving valentine from a daughter to her father, a clever, intimate musical and multi-media portrait of the man we thought we knew and the man Kiki knew as “dad.” … delivers the songs exquisitely, poignantly and often playfully live. it’s the personal storytelling (and film clips, including a delightful number with Shirley Temple)…infuse the show with an unforgettable magic that brings Buddy Ebsen alive once again. ”
