Friday Dance Party 10 – Christmas Retirement

I hope you all had a nice Christmas.

This Day-After-Christmas Friday Dance Party recognizes the retirement of Christmas…and a Christmas retirement.

The wonderful Bobbie Gentry on an episode of The Smothers Brothers Show.

Why play this today?  Apparently on Christmas Night 1978 (30 years ago), Bobbie Gentry performed on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson…and then stopped performing.

She was never a big fan of the spotlight and after 14 years in the biz she had had enough.  Bobbie Gentry went back to being Roberta Lee Streeter and apparently now lives in LA.  She is 64.
