Puppy Love

Yes, I admit, I stayed till 11pm just to catch a glimpsed of the "Donny And Marie Show" Then, 30 odd years ago, the once a week squeaky clean variety program was shown on a weekday 10pm. Their easy to sing songs, catch tunes, "goody two-shoes" look, Perfect idols for any teenager. As the show ended, others replaced them, Baycity Rollers, Leif Garret, The Cassidys, BeeGees, Beatles, soon...the Osmonds were lost and forgotten till Joseph And the Amazing technicolour dreamcoat And Mulan. Donny Osmond is back into the scene!!
Quite taken aback when I heard The Osmonds. The brothers and sister, 50th Anniversary performance tonight. I will give this a miss. I want to remember them as part of my growing up memories, young and suave.

Thanks for the link to the Twelfth of Never! and this post too! This formed part of my growing up memories - the Black & White TV, the Donny and Marie Show could never be missed!

I was a little country and a little rock and roll too! Yes, I skipped their concert too - too much to be paying for the tickets, I felt!
