Jimmy Kennedy was a lonely Chicago kid from a difficult family background who rose, nevertheless, to be his high school quarterback. But when he had to move to Florida, due to his father's health, he swapped his quarterback jersey for a tall hat to lead the high school band---obtaining a full music scholarship was the only way he would be able to afford to go to college. Then, to help pay his way through college, he ran a water-ski boat, played in a band, and trained as a dance instructor. Dancing, however, became his passion and he left college to pursue his dream of managing his own dance instruction business. Jim became a national dance champion at age 22 and was earning a small fortune---about $300,000 a year in today's money. However, his future was not in music and dance, but in the arms of a young lady called Anne, who suggested he really ought to go to church . . .
