30: Ted Kowalski

In the old nabe - Bathurst and Dupont - the Diamonds made us proud in the 1950s.

Among the originals was Ted Kowalski, a tenor who made a difference with their early hits.

Ted died Aug. 8 in Whitby from heart disease. He was 79. Toronto papers, including the Globe and Mail, have been catching up to his passing and giving him deserved recognition.

Nothing in the Sun to date, but Mike Filey is from the same nabe, so he might have some words for the Toronto music legend who recorded with the quartet for five years.

The Diamonds got together for a TV special a few years ago and a YouTuber put this 50-year tribute together for fans.
