This Day in History: ‘Donny & Marie’ TV Variety Show Premiered

On Jan. 23, 1976, the Donny & Marie variety show premiered on ABC-TV. The series starred Pop singing siblings Donny and Marie Osmond.

Donny’s popularity first rose when he sang in a group with his older brothers and released such singles as “One Bad Apple” and “Down By The Lazy River.” He then went on to have a solo career and released hit songs like “Puppy Love” and “Go Away Little Girl.” Marie’s first hit song came at the age of 13 when she released the single “Paper Roses,” which reached #1 on the Billboard Country Music charts.

And the rest is HIStory and HERstory! 😀 🙂
