This item was gifted to me by Bobby Curtola back in November of 2003.

Back in the early 60's 2 local brothers who both managed and wrote songs for Bobby Curtoal came up with the song "Things Go Better With Coke", which became a huge nation wide hit and this is a GOLD record of that song/jingle recorded by Bobby Curtola.

Back in Setpember of 2003 I had done a great deal of lobbying our city to name a street after Bobby Curtola, they eventually agreed so I then put together the Bobby Curtola tribute weekend scheduled for September of 2003. It was a fabulous 4 days and so many local groups benefited from the various functions that I had set up in advance for Bobby to attend. A fantastic time was had by all.

A few months later Bobby invited myself to visit him in his hometown and I did spend 4 days with him as well. Upon my leaving to return home, he insisted that he gift me with his GOLD record and he also personally signed it as well.

To me it is a true COKE treasure.

I hope these pictures are now better viewable on this website.

    Hi Gambler, with the flash we can't se anything about the record. Can you re-take the photo. instead of shooting straight on move slightly to the right and then angle the camera so the flash is at an angle and not reflected. Then hit the EDIT button, delete the old picture and this message and put up the new pic. Also you can tell us what it says and why it is special. Thanks

    WOW ! I just googled Bobby Curtola and was I impressed. Great sound...like a Canadian Bobby Rydell. The Coke story is really cool and we have some big Coke fans. Do you have any pictures of you and him that you could post?

    I am adding Bobby's website so folks can hear "Fortunteller" while they check out his bio. Hey, thanks for the introduction!

    Here are 4 links that will show you the various events of the 4 days that I spent with Bobby Curtola here in Thunder Bay during the month of September.

    I did keep him pretty busy during his time back home.
