Channeling Ray Stevens - 04/09/14
I love to sing. I sing to my kiddos and I sing in the car, shower, etcetera.
I don't sing on TV. It's happened only once before today - when a producer in Tucson asked me to try the "Cup Song" with the whole hand trick thing. It was silly. I did it. Okay, cool.
Well today, Deana Martin was in studio and coaxed me to sing. Deana is the daughter of the legendary Dean Martin. She is exquisite, funy, snazzy, perky, talented. I could go on and on. We were talking about the people her dad interviewed on his variety show, Ray Stevens came up. I love those crazy Ray Stevens songs. I was mesmerized by Deana and when I started singing Ray Stevens... well, I don't know what came over me. She sang along and made it fun - even if I looked the fool.
I guess if nothing else, I had a good trip down memory lane. My Gramps used to play Ray Stevens songs when I was little and I loved every minute of it. My favorite song is "Mississippi Squirrel Revival" so I sang part of that today. Maybe Gramps was listening - hopefully the rest of you were watching with the volume turned down. :)
