Met the radiant Toni Tennille at Barnes & Noble this weekend. What a wondrous talent. At this moment, I'm watching a DVD set of the Captain and Tennille variety show (very '70s). She's written a fine new autobiography with her niece, Caroline Tennille St. Clair.
One of the people in the group asked what her favorite song was, and she of course said it was like choosing a favorite child. However, she admitted to having several songs within albums that were special to her. I agree -- her versions of "God Only Knows" and "Disney Girls" are superb.
This was her first signing event for her new memoir, which is also an audiobook. She particularly enjoyed making the audio version because of her experience in the recording studio. Next up is an appearance on the Today Show, the Daytime Emmys and more book appearances nationwide.
