Bobby's on NPR "This Is America". Join host Dennis Wholey for a personal conversation with legendary singer, songwriter, and musician Bobby Hebb who discusses his performing career.

Someone wrote an essay on "Sunny" on Wikipedia:

The 45 RPM "Dreamy" b/w "You Want To Change Me" just sold on eBay again, check out
our story on it.

We're looking for the Caravan Of Stars program. Bobby Hebb was on this Dick Clark "Caravan Of Stars" 1965 tour with Gary Lewis and The Playboys, Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs, The Yardbirds, Bobby Hebb, Brian Hyland, Jimmy Clanton, The Distant Cousins, Dale Wright & The Wirght Guys and Jimmy Stokely & The Exiles

Some fan on Blogspot put Bobby's photo inside of the Battle single

There are so many new cover versions of "Sunny" it is hard to keep up with them all!

Christian Howes
Jazz Fiddle Revolution (2004) A truly revolutionary album featuring spontaneous duo performances with the brilliant young violinist, Billy Contreras, and guest spots with cellist and trombonist, Dana Leong. This album demonstrates new possibilities in two-violin duets, with the violins accompanying each other in a range of jazz styles, including swing, funk, and blues. Including innocent performances of “What a Wonderful World” and the Rodgers and Hart classic, “It Never Entered My Mind”, as well as bold, fresh takes on other standards such as “The Way You Look Tonight”, “Doxie”, and some originals by Howes and Contreras.
