So I had this great idea last week that, like Arlee, I would feature songs done by child stars, but in my case, the songs would have been done while the actor was busy doing their show. I started with Paul Petersen (Jeff Stone from The Donna Reed Show), Johnny Crawford (Mark McCain from The Rifleman), and Jay North (Dennis from Dennis The Menace). I honestly thought this would be a close match. Boy, was I ever wrong.
Paul Petersen – 1
Johnny Crawford – 11
- Mary B
Jay North – zero
Congratulations to Johnny Crawford, who now directs his own dance orchestra, and Paul and Jay–I don’t know what to tell you. Thanks also to Janet for helping me avoid a shutout.
Intrepidly, I push on. It’s the girls’ turn next Monday, March 1. See you then!
