Kids Are People Too vs Patti Smith

You have to be "of a certain age" to remember the kid's television show "Kids Are People Too." It ran from 1978 until sometime in the early mid-80's and was essentialy a talk-show format with a live studio audience. They had regular features like the kid's advice segment "Dear Alex and Annie" (they looked like a talking Sheilds & Yarnell), and guests were people like people giving kids advice on shopping, random b-list celebrities, and musicians. Sometimes there were some really cool guests though. I recently came across this clip of Patti Smith singing "You Light Up My Life" on the show! Talk about random! But man, I do love a cover song.



I suppose on some levels this might not seem like a particularly gay thing to post on this blog, but we do get the Detroit connection when Patti answers a question about where she lives. Plus it's a cover of a Debby Boone song accompanied by composer Joe Brooks. And show host Michael Young's package in those tight jeans ...
