From Mark Bliesener: I had the pleasure of meeting Little Richard twice. Attached please find a video clip about that first meeting with illustrations by Greg Carr and video by Mike Schrader.
Also attached is a song “Little Richard Told Me,” which I wrote/recorded about the second. Wonderful/fortunate memories.
I also want to share a photo of my Little Richard autograph! One of my most prized possessions!
All the best,
