NEWS IN A MINUTE: Court -- Teacher's trial date set in husband's death

 

July 27, 2004

Singing frank vendor on national show today

Since he can sing only once a game at Detroit's Comerica Park, Charley Marcuse, the singing hot dog vendor, will belt out his signature operatic rendition -- "HoOoOtt DoOoOggs" -- in New York today.

Marcuse will pass out franks and sing on ABC's "Good Morning America." ABC officials say he will most likely be featured between 8:30 and 9 a.m.

Marcuse, a Birmingham resident, became the story behind the Tigers' resurgence when park officials told him in May to stifle his singing. The story became international news.

Fans of Marcuse responded with petitions, a Web site and T-shirts proclaiming "Let Charley Sing."

He now sings only once a game during a Ball Park franks promotion, which is broadcast on the large scoreboard screen.

Marcuse, a Tigers vendor since 1999, said Monday before boarding a New York-bound flight that he was looking forward to the gig.

"Even in a week with the Democratic National Convention, it's crazy that I'm still getting attention. But I'm having fun," he said. By Ben Schmitt
