Ricky Nelson -I’m Walkin’, 1957 (Remix)

Written by on April 10, 2018

So how far would you go to impress a potential date?

On April 10th, 1957, Ricky Nelson, then all of sixteen, performed his recently-recorded version of Fats Domino’s “I’m Walkin'” on his family’s TV sitcom, ABC’s The Adventures Of Ozzie And Harriet.

It made Ricky an overnight sensation. His Dad was one of the Executive Producers of the family TV show and decided to let Ricky do the song. The reason Ricky wanted to do it… to impress a girl he wanted to date.

Millions of records later.

The world first heard Ricky Nelson sing 61 years ago today. What is your best memory of Rick?
