  •  nope - I don't - sure there may (6+ / 0-)

    be some stills somewhere

    there wasn't such easy access to recording things then.

    My dance troop was called Denise and the Dellettes cause we were working first with Brooks O'Dell

    then did dance back up for Sam and Dave
    while simultaneously putting together a singing group

    wound up with Frankie Crocker the DJ as our manager for a while - this video has his album cover with me on it :)

    hard to see though.

      Speaking of dance - This summer we got to see Bill Jones again!  Wonderful to be so close to his dancers, participate in a talk back afterward, and share memories with him about the Affiliate Artist programs, where I first met  him.  (And of course he remembered me - LOL!!!)
