Songwriter who wrote a fifties rock and roll hit in the "Our Song" episode (September 27, 1986) of syndicated television series Throb. Originally sung by Barry Bell and the Belltones, a new Throb Records act, Bleeding Gums wants to cover the old romantic ballad, "Out of Control." Throb records employee Sandy (Diana Canova) has to go negotiate with Porter (played by real singer Billy Vera). Luckily he lives right in town.

The song was really written by Tena Clark.
