Thanks for the Donna Douglas tribute, Rex! I know both Dash Riprock and Sonny Drysdale are inconsolable at this time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm ChrisB.:

Did Donna record any novelty singles a la many young TV stars of the day?

according to wiki:

Douglas frequently performed as a gospel singer and spoke at churches across America. She has recorded several gospel albums, the first released in 1982.[5] During the 1970s and 1980s, she also recorded a few minor country music records.

I remember Donna once playing as Ellie Mae in that horrible Mario Brothers show from the 80's which starred wrestler Lou Albano as Mario.

  1:48pm pottybear:

Donna's role in Whirlybirds as Girl is legendary.
Avatar 1:52pm Sean B.:

Freddie is the best (in my very stubborn) opinion period. One of my fave tracks...eva. Thanx Rex.
