the encore show - best of the 60s & 70s

interviews with icons from the greatest musical era

​​EPISODE 28 - Who remembers the song “I Met Him on a Sunday? Well, we’re going to meet her today. “Her” is Beverly Lee who’s been with the Shirelles from the very beginning. Beverly and the Shirelles have performed on five continents and appeared before many heads of state and U.S. Presidents, but first up, we tend to think of Dawn Wells in the role of Mary Ann on Gilligan’s Island, although she also appeared in various TV episodes from the early ‘60s like Hawaiian Eye, 77 Sunset Strip, Maverick, and Bonanza. Today, she runs a business called Wishing Wells Collections, making clothing for people with limited mobility, and she’s the founder of the Idaho Film and Television Institute. We talk with both Dawn and Beverly, our Episode Twenty-Eight guests, on this week’s show.
