I got to talk with a friend recently who had memories of going to the Aku Aku. She wanted to specifically see Earl Bostic perform there in 1965. Earl Bostic had come into the restaurant that she and her husband owned and mentioned to her husband that he did not see any of his records in their juke box. He later told his wife of the meeting and was upset that he did not call her out to meet him. When he was back in Toledo for the 1965 appearance her husband was in the hospital so they couldn't go. He promised to take her the next time he came to Toledo. They never did get to see him perform...Earl Bostic died about a month later while performing at the Midtown Plaza in Rochester, NY. Incidently my friend has no memorabilia from the Aku. Struck out again!
