Wednesday Mellow: Come Fly With Me(James Darren)

James Darren has had an interesting character as both an actor and musician. Many remember him from the Gidget movies or Irwin Allen’s The Time Tunnel. When he was approached about doing the holographic character Vic Fontaine for Star Trek:Deep Space Nine he was not certain about the role. His wife, it is reported, convinced him to do it. The role allowed him to showcase his musical talents (and in one episode Captain Sisko’s as well) earning him new interest in his music. His 1999 album This One’s From The Heart showcases many of the songs performed on the show. Enjoy and have a nice Wednesday.
