The bartender was almost crushed to death.

As He Accompanies Delores Hope in 1978
"The news of Dolores Hope’s passing away at 102 years a few days ago had me reminiscing about the time I was asked by her husband Bob to accompany her at the Broadmoor hotel in Colorado Springs. I performed for Bob Hope many times while I was an Air Force Musician.
Dolores wasn’t sure of her key for singing “On A Clear Day” so I suggested the key of “C” since her range was about a fourth or fifth lower than the (standard key of “G” for that song). Her range was similar to Sandy’s or similar to those here in Tulsa like Pam Van Dyke Crosby, Cindy Cain and Rebecca Ungerman. Dolores had a beautiful voice and she was a most gracious and beautiful person as well. I’m so fortunate to have worked with such wonderful people in my life. Attached is a photo of Dolores Hope and me! She was 69 years old in the photo. I was, of course, just a kid!"
