Rumour has it that it was Mary's naked backside we watched walking into a body of water, on that TV show opening footage 'Here Come The Seventies', music care of John-Mills Cockell/Synergy 'Tilicum'!! She's been all over radio. My original radio 'big sister' in my thoughts and feelings. I didn't have a sister in my family so I adopted certain female radio voices for that comfort factor; and Mary Ellen is the grande dame of them all!! Really enjoyed listening to her yucking it up with Pete 'n' Geets too.
