pic "Today, the Magic Kingdom—and the nostalgic boomers picwho yearned to make her either their girlfriend or their best friend—are mourning the death of Annette Funicello, the teen dream idol whose sunny, perky screen presence defined the ’50s and ’60s. The quintessence of innocence, mixed with dark good looks and beguiling charm, she was a male ideal and a female role model.

Wholesome in the best sense, Funicello was drive-ins, sock hops, beach parties and malted milks-the personification of a seemingly innocent era." I'll play a handful of her songs from that long gone era. Also on tap, since Annette was Italian, it's fitting to play some Italian Crime Themed lounge music.

Tune in Wed April 17, 2-3PM.
