You're listening to "Johnny Angel" sung by Shelley Fabares. (See Footnote)

 
Though this Johnny is past the puppy-love days of being anyone's "Johnny Angel,"
without doubt, "Johnny" and "John" remain the two most common names in song.

There's Something For Everyone!
 
Whether you're looking for a DJ, event-wise info/planner, or just crusin', there's something in this site for you. I provide lists, planning guides, insights to a great events, photos, and perhaps an opinion or two...
OK, maybe more than two!
 
I also provide my personally constructed entertainment agreement, which I am pleased to report is being adopted in whole or part by others.  Having constructed numerous agreements over the years, I know that this is well considered with proper protection for the host and the entertainer.  In short, this agreement improves the industry.
 
And yes, I post my single event entertainment fees for all to see.  I believe in published fees... actual fees, not "list" fees.  I don't negotiate single event fees.... not due to an arrogance, but out of fairness.  In this way, every host, bride, event planner can determine before contacting me whether my fees fit their budget.  Please note that I wrote "single event," for there are other negotiable considerations in multiple event bookings.   
 
I use the theme of "Social" Security, on the Home Page, because if there is one thing for certain, it's that events evolve... and not so rarely, they require mid-event attention to bring the host's vision to reality. 
 
Unless you're a professional planner, the chances are that the event which you are planning may be the only one for the year. This makes it very special. You have a lot invested in the event. And, I work hard with you to secure your return on that investment.
 
So, I encourage you to enter my site... and take the time to visit the links, or stop back, when you do have time.
 
Also, if you wish, send me an email. Perhaps I can offer casual advice.
This will not obligate you to retain my entertainment services.
 
STAY LOOSE!  Remember it's a life event that you are planning, not a life. And, there's a world of difference between adjectives and nouns.  Ditto for all other events.  At the end of the function, if you have surrounded yourself with family, friends, associates, and patrons who appreciate your effort, YOU WILL HAVE HOSTED A SUCCESSFUL EVENT.

THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT "JOHNNY"
 
Though this Johnny is past the puppy-love days of
being anyone's "Johnny Angel" (tell me about it), 
without doubt, "Johnny" and "John" remain
the two most common names in song.
 
"Oh Johnny," "When Johnny Come Marching Home, Again,"
"Big Bad John," "Johnny One-Note," "Johnny B. Goode, " "Johnny Cakes,"
"Dear John," "Johnny Get Angry," "Johnny Jingo," "Johnny Will,"
and the list continues.
 
Shelley Fabares also had a "thing" for "Johnny."  She had her monster hit "Johnny Angel," which you are hearing, and then a lesser hit,
"Johnny Loves Me," which only reached #21 and remained
on The Charts for 6 weeks, compared to
 
"Johnny Angel"
SHELLEY FABARES
#1 for 2 Weeks - Top 40 for 13 Weeks
First charted 03/17/1962
 
 
And Now, Something About
SHELLEY FABARES
 
I know... for decades you have pronounced her name Fabray... and now that you're seeing her name spelled-out... are having the same linguistic twist that you have with Green Bay Packers'QB, Bret Farvre whose name is commonly pronounced like "nerve," except "farve." Well, it's understandable. Shelley has a well-known aunt named, Nanette Fabray (Ruby Fabares, no surprise here), the energetic commedienne who has had a very successful career in acting; a few highlights being MGM's The Band Wagon in 1953 and 3 Emmy's after replacing Imogen Coca on the the Sid Ceasar's Hour after Coca's death.
 
Had Shelley not been successful with "Johnny Loves Me," (#21 in 6/62), the follow-up tune to "Johnny Angel," she would have joined a long list of the One-Hit-Wonders of the '60s. 
 
Nonetheless, after her singing "career" of 19 weeks on the Top 40 Charts for her combined songs, Shelley went on to have a far more substantial career in acting both in three movies with Elvis and on TV's Donna Reed Show, and more.
