...with Mike Beisner and the
"William Austin Goodman is one of my all time
and a super good friend. His long career has been full and varied.
After many long years with the legendary Four Freshmen,
Autie continues to excite me with his wonderful vocals and excellent
saxophone work. You'll surely enjoy him in the 'We Thought About You'
CD..." " ...Mike Beisner not only has been a long time friend,
he is, as Bob Flanigan of the Four Freshmen put it: "...the finest
musician in the world!" He has combined a vast musical knowledge
and greatly uses his own ideas, dazzling technique, and power of
arranging in this exciting CD with Autie. The results are not short
of amazing." - Edd Townsend - Four Freshmen Society Founder

July 6, 2008....
It's with deep regret we learned that Mike Beisner died today in Las Vegas
of an apparent heart attack.
Mike was a key member of the Four Freshmen starting in 1982. He was part of Groups #7,
8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 17 and 18 and sang every part except lead.
We'll miss you, Mike...
This just in from Connie, Mike's first wife..

water and cookies. There will be a baby grand piano, a set of drums and an amp
for anyone who would like to sing or play during this time. Guests are being invited
to bring a favorite picture to LEAVE at the reception table, and write a brief
