  1. “and now pinch-hitting for the Osmonds is…The DeFranco Family!”

    I had forgotten about the Cat Stevens song. A lot of good songs in here.

    • In all seriousness…Since they are similar I bet the family didn’t want to compete against the Osmonds releases.
      Ahhh…probably the same deal the Beatles and Stones had lol.
