Falsetto, Vibrato, Ukulele… it must be Tiny Tim!
Tiny Tim was a unique musical character who graced the 1960s music scene and made history by marrying Victoria Budinger (“Miss Vicki”) on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1969 while 40 million viewers watched. He found fans, fanatics and some ridicule for his covers of such tunes as ’Tiptoe Through The Tulips’ and ‘Livin’ In The Moonlight’ sung with an extreme falsetto/vibrato voice and accompanied by a ukulele.

You can listen to music from Tiny Tim and other artists of the 60s on Dusty Discs Radio.
