Default Feeling nostalgic? Turn on PBS. Hurry!

Music of the 50's on now. Gogi Grant just sang. Not bad for 90. Can you name that tune? -- The one Gogi just sang.

My mom had the radio on a lot when I was a kid. And then we got a hi-fi, too. So I know all the words to most of those songs. (But what the heck did I do with my car keys when I got home this afternoon?)

At 10:00 we will have Doo-Wop. I am going to watch that, too. Might even have to get up off the couch and do a few moves. . . shoo bop, shoo bop........

Volare Laurie

Gotta love it! And the audience. All on their feet singing "Blue Moon" -- and it looks like they know all the words, too.

Yes, Mrs. Trebek. I'll take one hit wonders by Canadians for 500. Who was Don Ross? (although that one was Lucy Watusi)
Or
Who was Wilson Pickett, land of 1000 dances. Do the Watusi, like my little Lucy.

BUZZZZ! So sorry, Mr. B. But the order of the wording was specific to needing an exact answer.

Lucy Baines Johnson was seen dancing the watusi -- 50 years ago -- and the nickname Watusi Lucy was bantered about a bit.

That's OK. Maybe you will hit big on Final Jeopardy.

Oh well, I better get outa here so I can get up early and see if there are any Sha Na Na tickets left. Forgot all about it til tonight when Bowser showed up on PBS.
