Puts you there where things are hollow



For a change, the fact that it's Monday again is of no great significance to me, being off work with the broken foot and all.

However the start of any week must still be celebrated with glitz'n'glitter, as is traditional here at Dolores Delargo Towers...

What more glittering - and tacky - could you want this Tacky Music Monday than a double bill [I spoil you, dear reader!] of the pearly-white-teeth-led eye-popping "entertainment" that was provided by The Donny & Marie Show?

First up in this cringeworthy mélange is my childhood crush [I know, I know!] Donny, dressed in an illuminated cape to die for, and his own "tribute" to the most influential musician of all time Mr David Bowie! [To his credit, he doesn't completely massacre it...] Here's Fame:



And what would a Donny & Marie Show be without a suitably overstuffed-with-guests finale? [Made even more bewildering by the fact that I have no idea who Roy Clark or George Gobel actually are/were.] Worth watching from 3.11 alone for a fab appearance by none other than Charo!



Space. The final frontier. Indeed.

Have a good week, peeps!

PS in case the profusion of members of "Utah's First Family" causes any confusion, help is at hand: Behind the Teeth: Know Your Osmond.

    1. This begs the question: were you "a little bit Country" or "a little bit Rock'n'Roll"? Jx

    1. I have to ask: Norma, do you live on "the Morningside of the Mountain" or "the Twilightside of the Hill"? Jx

      PS To be fair, I could have chosen their Xmas Special montage starring Cheryl Ladd, Erik Estrada and Dorothy Hamill. You'd have loved that...
