Singer, Entertainer. He began his professional career after serving in World War II, as lead vocalist for Les Brown and his Band of Renown. He had his greatest success when he teamed up with Tony Sandler to form "Sandler and Young" in 1963. For over twenty years they were known as one of the best and most unique vocal duos in popular music. They headlined casino showrooms such as Caesar's Palace, the Las Vegas Hilton, Sahara and Atlantic City's Resorts International. They hosted CBS' "Kraft Music Hall" from London in 1969, also TV shows, Andy Williams, Merv Griffin, Dean Martin, Red Skelton and appeared on the final Ed Sullivan Show in March, 1971. They also released 22 albums before Young retired from the act in the mid-1990s. Young made his last appearance with partner Tony Sandler at the McCallum Theatre in 2001, as part of an all-star lineup in a benefit for victims of 9/11. Together with Sandler, he has a star on the Palm Springs, California, Walk of Stars. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)

Happy St. Patrick's Day Ralph! Even though we know you weren't Irish it sure would be nice to hear you sing some of those wonderful Irish tunes! Maybe you and Mike Douglas are giving those in Heaven one heck of a show! Miss you.
