Reach out

Sad news today, as we learn that Olivia Newton-John's sister Rona has lost her battle with brain cancer.

About Rona:
  • She was married to the late Grease star Jeff Conaway ("Kenickie") from 1980 to 1985.
  • She appeared in several TV series including The Benny Hill Show and Gerry Anderson’s UFO, and played "Ty"'s therapist in the movie Sordid Lives.
  • In 1972 Olivia and Rona recorded a duet together Just Us Two.

Here's ONJ singing an appropriate song - the Bacharach & David number Reach Out For Me (sandwiched between some over-acting ladies and what I can only assume is an odd Japanese version of Loose Women):
