Saturday 9: Johnny Angel

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: Johnny Angel (1962)



On Saturdays I take a break from the heavy stuff and have some fun…
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song, a girl sings that she'd rather spend a quiet evening at home than go out on a date. How about you? Do you enjoy quiet time? Or do you prefer keeping a busy calendar?
I enjoy quiet time but sometimes it does become a little too much.

2) She dreams of how her life with Johnny would be. What did you most recently daydream about?
Winning Powerball.

3) Shelley never considered herself a singer and is more comfortable acting. A costar on The Donna Reed Show, she was pressured to make this record by the show's producer, who wanted extra exposure for the show by having this song on the radio. Tell us about a time you ventured outside your comfort zone.
Every day when I go out, especially in today’s political climate.

4) Elvis said she was his favorite leading lady, and she appeared with him in three films. What qualities do you appreciate in a coworker?
They do their work.

5) She met her close friend and fellow teen star Annette Funicello when they were 12 and attended the same Catechism class. What do you recall from your middle-school years?
Not much. I don’t even remember much about high school. This year it has been fifty years since I graduated from high school

6) After The Donna Reed Show, Shelly went on to a recurring role on One Day at a Time and was twice nominated for an Emmy for her work on Coach. Her husband is Mike Farrell, who played BJ on M*A*S*H. Which of those four sitcoms would you enjoy binge watching?
I have been watching Barney Miller and Johnny Carson on one of the cable channels.

7) In 1962, the year this song was popular, is also the year Jack Nicklaus began his successful pro golf career. Do you enjoy playing golf? Watching it on TV?
Miniature golf, yes. Regular golf, no. And I don’t watch golf on TV

TWO Random Questions (especially for Harriet):

8) A 2013 study said most Americans will have 12 romantic relationships in their lifetime. Does this mean you've had more or less than your share?
Way less.

9) It's closing time at the mall and you find yourself accidentally locked in a toy store. You call the police and they say someone will be there in about half an hour to rescue you. While you wait, will you play with any toys? (If so, which ones?)
Probable not, I don’t even know what toys kids play with now.

I will be away all weekend so I don't know when I will be able to reply to your posts.

I used to love Barney Miller! I would love to watch it again.

Trump has some very hard questions he'll try to weasel out of, but if the rest of the triad (I know, bad choice of words) of our government stands firm and defends our Constitution, he'll be out on his ear in less than a year. Justice has fired the first volley.

I, too, am sorry the political climate makes you feel unsafe. We live in evil times.
