Eddie Cochran (?-1976) was a comedy magician, assisted by his wife Nadyne, who toured with the USO during World War II.[1][2]


Cochran started in show business at the age of twelve as a saxophonist. He and his blind brother organized a band in St. Louis, playing at local dances.

Cochran was later taught to dance by his sister and they toured the country as a dance team. He also performed as a Master of Ceremonies and remained for almost two years at a leading theater in Oakland, California.[3]

He eventually left a successful magic career, to become a picture and radio agent in Hollywood. He started representing Milo and Roger around 1929.[4][5][6]
