BRIDGEPORT MAN LANDS RECORDING CONTRACT WITH HIS HICCUPS

A CHRONIC CASE OF HICCUPS MAY PAY DIVIDENDS FOR LOCAL MAN AFTER HIS WIFE RECORDS HIM HICCUPING THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER.......

BRIDGEPORT, MN.

Cal N. Dere gets ready to hiccup a song
Cal N. Dere, 57, of Bridgeport has suffered through the last ten years with chronic hiccups. After years of trying every known remedy and device to rid himself of this curse, he began putting a positive spin on it and trained himself to make musical notes.  One evening last month his wife, Ola, heard him hiccuping in his sleep.  "We were in bed and just as I was about to fall asleep, I heard Cal hiccuping the Star Spangled Banner in his sleep." she told OFF THE WALL NEWS.  "I quickly grabbed my phone and recorded it."
She then woke Dere and played him the recording.  All he could do was smile as he made a list of songs he wanted to hiccup.  He recorded three of his favorites  and sent them into Party Harte Records.  The songs he hiccuped were, "Hotel California", an Eagles hit song,  "Ina Godda Davida", by Iron Butterfly, and "The Twist", a Chubby Checker hit. Party Harte executives were blown away and signed Dere to a recording contract. 

Dere told OFF THE WALL his biggest fear was touring after his album came out.  "Getting up there on the stage in front of thousands of screaming girls will be a turn on, but it  might scare the hiccups out of me and if that happens, I'm done!"  As for Mrs. Dere's take on all that has happened, " At first his hiccups turned me on, but now I just take it one hiccup at a time."
OFF THE WALL NEWS will be at that first concert, when and if it happens.
