๐Ÿ’œMy BBC Interview for Donny’s 50th Year in Show Business Friday 10th Oct 2014 Season 6 ‘FernBrittonMeets…….’ ๐ŸŽผ including a message from Fern Britton๐Ÿ’œ

It all started with facebook & a ‘friend request’ came through, I accepted & then a message came through from the BBC. They were researching for a programme for Donny’s 50th Year in the Business and he was to be interviewed by Fern Britton for BBC ‘FernBrittonMeets’ to be aired Sun 30th November 10am,

they had seen that I was ‘Fan of the Month’ back in 1976 in Osmonds’ World magazine, I had blogged it ! Click here to read all about it, Wow, a long time ago but still great memories.

image

They asked if we could speak together which was great as anything about Donny was fine with me ! We spoke next day, I was asked a few questions & then asked if I would want to speak on camera, of course, to be on Donny’s special programme, I’m thrilled to be involved. I was so excited, jumped for joy when told the girls at work, I was going to be interviewed & (hopefully) be on Donny’s programme ! I must admit I had visions of being in the room with Donny when Fern interviewed him, I can dream eh !! but the BBC came to me, which was still exciting !
I had a great time with the interview, very nervous & was lost for words (literally) on a few questions, also read some of my Diary from ‘1977 Fan Club Wondertour to USA’ which has great detail of each day especially meeting Donny for the first time at KTLA Studios watching ‘Donny & Marie Show’ (Day 5 Blog, when writing this blog I had to shorten the days’ experience as it goes into pages & pages ! ) Please see my other ‘Diary’ Blog pages and other Osmond experiences after reading this xx

Loved talking about all the memories & so glad I wrote that diary as I wouldn’t remember such detail today !

Fern kindly gave me these words about her interview with Donny ” he was very funny, enjoyed the biscuits that were on offer, was totally focused and generous with his time ! A great interview ”
Thanks Fern x

๐Ÿ’œHAPPY 50th YEAR in the Business Donny๐Ÿ’œxx

Enjoy the programme everyone, hopefully I’m included ! Read my next blog to see ! ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ‘xxx

Goodnight Everybody xx

๐Ÿ’•Donny and Marie Osmond UK Tour at the BIC January 25th 2013๐Ÿ‘ 

Where do I start ! The day’s Friday 25th Jan 2013 and I’m going with my friend Jackie to BIC Bournemouth to see Donny and Marie on their UK Tour. Lots of tweets were being sent by both Donny and Marie keeping us informed of their activities which is always fun, but the added bonus with Marie was that she was running a competition via twitter for later in the show to tweet through your seat no., row and block you were seated in and screen on stage to say ‘tweet now’, she randomly would choose a winner to have 2 front row seats and backstage passes to meet both of them after – wow had to give that a go ! I prepared ahead of time, put all details into a tweet ‘draft’, after taking our seats I sent the tweet through, so did many others I’m sure!
The show began, brilliant to see them both, Marie finished her song, she started to explain about the twitter comp and announced here’s the winner ‘tina louise mckenzie’ ! Jackie and I looked at each other-jackie said she was gonna kill me!! yes we had won 2 seats in Row A ! This was the start of something truly FANTASTIC XX

image

We were taken down the front, Marie asked if we had made it down ok, so I thanked her and shook her hand ! It was a brilliant brilliant concert, we have never been in Row A before !

They are incredible, so wonderful, could watch them all day every day!
During the interval we were shown around backstage, had photos taken on stage, introduced to everyone ( not D and M), and led back to our seats, all the team were so nice.

The brilliant show finished, we were led to wait backstage, how was I feeling, I’m not sure, already on cloud nine from beginning of day and a few clouds higher during the concert and now even higher at this stage! Donny was in his dressing room, Marie joined us. They were wonderful, had a lovely chat and photos taken, then it was time to dash!
What can I say about the experience, words fail me. It was the best evening ever thanks to Donny and Marie & all the Crew, thank you sooo much XX Will that ever happen again, Iet’s hope so ! (now 2017 UK TOUR booked!)

What can I say about this pic !

๐Ÿ’—Audio Tape Recording on Coach of Marie, Jay & Donny ๐Ÿ‘ซ Day 5 “THE OSMONDS FAN CLUB WONDERTOUR TO USA 1977 “

I was recently having a loft clear-out weekend & I came across something VERY EXCITING ! Who remembers cassette tapes ?!! I have found original recording of Donny, Marie & Jay talking on our coach back in 1977 on Wondertour after watching D&M Show ! It’s sooo exciting ! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ†’

image

Have borrowed a tape machine to play the cassette, hope it plays OK, let’s see! Brilliant, sounds good !

And here we are 44 years later, oh dear! and many hours of transferring cassette recording to computer, editing it & putting onto SoundCloud & finally onto blog! Anyway mentioned it to Donny on Reddit Q&A last week & this was his reply:-

Haha Donny ! Some fans will be wondering what’s a tape cassette & an 8-track !! Hehe ! xx Marie ‘favorited’ on twitter too, thanks Marie xx

Have a listen, it’s a fun recording ! X https://soundcloud.com/tina-louise-mckenzie/wondertour-recording/s-rJGI0

๐ŸŽคDonny at HMV London 2004

Donny was in London 2004, he was making an appearance at HMV Oxford St. singing & signing autographs.
Going back to evening before, I had planned for all of the family to visit London as a day out as the kids on ‘Inset Day’ (school closed for day) & it wasn’t until after the plans did I know that Donny was to be at HMV, to this day my kids still do not believe me & say I planned the trip well ! I promise this was not the case, but no regrets as I met Donny !
We arrived in London early, walked into HMV & no one about, where were the fans ? I asked someone & told they were queued around the building tucked away and they were just coming in & I should join the Section A queue which was coming in now, WOW that was lucky ! My girls joined me but Andy & James watched from afar & the big screen !
Donny performed, amazing as always, then it was time to go on the stage and meet him, Abbie had my photo with Donny from 1977 Tour with her to get signed for me, ‘is that your mom’ he asked & I had DVD ‘Live from Edinburgh Castle’ signed.

image

Donny was not to stop for photos so unfortunately didn’t get one of those ! A fab time, all happened in less than an hour but what a great experience๐ŸŽค Thanks Donny xx
