Another Story That Won`t Die

Post by Blair N. Cummings »

It still seems to be accepted by the few who care that the singer on "Saturday Sunshine" was Jay North - known to those of us at a certain stage of chronological advancement as Dennis the Menace. I read some years back that it was, in fact, a twelve year old girl. Has anyone - for the sole sake of trivia - ever asked Burt about this? Did the little tyke go on to a professional music career? Who, just for the record, was she?
I`m pretty sure that this was the first song to stick with me that I shortly thereafter learned was a B/D composition and made me an "auteurist".
