Some of the cast members of Front Page Follies will appear on Live at Five at Four today to sing two of the songs from the show: “Another Brick for the Vols” and “Go Donnie Ball.” I will be at work, but I will be sure to set my DVR or watch online.
Today is the deadline to order tickets at FrontPageFollies.com in order to guarantee a seat and a meal. The event is staged by the East Tennessee Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists as a fundraiser for journalism scholarships at the University of Tennessee and Pellissippi State. My wife and I are in the cast this year.
In the show on Saturday, I will sing a spoof of a country song called “Better Class of Losers.” I thought it would be funny to wear overalls during the number. My wife and I looked in a thrift store over the weekend without luck. Then, I happened to mention it to Sam Metz, who works with me at the radio group. He had overalls that I can borrow for the show. Now all I need is a large picture of the Hee Haw donkey.
