BUSTER ODLE: For Retha


To Buster Odle's daughter Retha, who contacted me this morning in regards to her father: Unfortunately no, I don't have any more information on your Dad.

Bill Strong does have this promotional flyer for sale at his eBay store, which might have some information.

Any info that you already have on your Dad that you'd be willing to share would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
~P

Thanks so much for the message. I actually have a copy of that Show post but would love to get the original. I will check out ebay and see what I can come up with. I have several pictures of him plus some media interviews and his death notice. If you would like any of that I can try and get it to you. Eddie Dullum was a close friend of the family and was always over at the house for supper. He also took us trick-or-treating....and then only let us have one piece of candy each day. Do you have any onfo on him? My mom would like to know what happened after we left Chicago.

Thanks

Retha

Dear Retha,
I worked as a clown with Buster doing state fairs in New York and the north-east during 1973 and 1974. We also worked on a fair show in the south in 1974 as well as selling dancing clowns on the street in New Orleans.
He was a funny man.
If I can help you please contact me through our website.
Sincerely,
Terry Johnson
