Well, the day arrived at last, Sunday 30th November 2014 ! Such excitement as I thought ‘Am I going to be on ?’ Wow to be on a programme with Donny, felt like a dream. But yes it was all real ! The programme started, I was so excited but thoughts of anticipation running through me, will they, won’t they! Lots of great footage was shown from the early days of the Osmonds, visiting the UK & Heathrow incident with the wall collapsing due to so many fans waiting for their arrival ! Donny spoke about his life, his faith, it was a honest, loving interview (had a little cry !) also appearing was Marie, Roger Holt – Record Producer, David Hughes – Press Officer, Tony Prince – DJ and of course Maureen – Fan Club Manager/Secretary, all giving great stories from way back, all so interesting to listen to. Then around 29 mins+ I was on, so hard to see yourself on TV ! Do I really sound like that, hehe! I appeared a few more times, the funniest clip was about ‘7UP’ cans & how I used to collect them & put them on my bedroom window sill after drinking them of course, oh dear !! Had to do it way back then, the Osmonds drank it !!! It was a fantastic experience, would I do it again, a BIG YES as any opportunity to talk about Donny & my experiences is always the best time ever, ‘as he makes me go all funny !!‘ xx Watch Donny’s Interview with Fern and ENJOY!

A magazine every Osmond fan bought back in 1973 (Nov ’73 Issue 1) to 1977 & maybe longer, I had mine delivered to home, could not imagine missing an edition ! One month, to be precise the August 1976 Issue, Maureen, Fan Club Secretary, wrote about a new fun thing happening in future editions, ‘Fan of the Month’. You had to write in, ( yes write & post details, remember doing that ! ) with details of yourself & include a photo, of course I had to do that ! As usual my issue dropped through the letterbox & reading through I reached Maureen’s page & there I was printed in Osmonds’ World No. 36 October 1976 Issue !!
Oh the excitement was overwhelming, sandwiched next to Donny ! What a surprise, sooo glad I wrote to Maureen ! I have of course always kept a copy, well TWO copies actually! ( must get them signed one day, eh Donny ! ) in my ‘Wondertour 1977’ scrapbook, & here I am 45 YEARS LATER blogging about it ! Then in June 2017 this happened….on Instagram 🆒😉…..YES !! (Makes my day, soooo pleased x) Thanks Donny & Nathan x
Memories to keep forever xx
