Happy St Patrick's Day

MacNamara's Band

"A hot dog makes her lose control..."

Here's the theme song from The Patty Duke Show -the early 60's TV classic starring Patty Duke in two roles as Patty Lane (All-American teenage girl), and her identical twin British cousin Cathy Lane (that's right - her identical twin cousin; anything was possible in the wacky world of 60's sticoms).
