A terrific episode all around, very easy on the eyes and the ears too!
Plus the fact that Sandi and Sally wore mini skirts and go-go boots helped as well.
Sitting in the audience for tonight's show was Ralna's parents, you can tell that they were mighty proud of their daughter. Especially when she sang "You'll Never Know" in the solo spot with passion, gusto and heart.
And Harry Warren himself was also in the audience, he also had to be very proud of the Music Makers saluting his work.
So until next time, keep a song in your heart and if you shuffle off to Buffalo, avoid the rush hour traffic on the New York Thruway.
