Wonderful song. The lyrics are somewhat less up-beat than the music, as is so often the case with Buffett.

"A two-tone Ricky Ricardo jacket,
and an autographed picture of Andy Devine.
I remember being buck-toothed and skinny,
writing fan letters to Sky's niece Penny..."

How many people even remember SKY KING?

Bill Crider said...

I do!

Don Coffin said...

I actually wrote a letter to Penny...have exactly zero memory of what it said. I must have written it in the late-1950s, though...

I listened to the radio show in the afternoon after school.

I remember Sky King although I didn't watch it much. Marx made a SK playset with character figures of Sky and Penny. Maybe the other guy, too. Alas, I was too young to appreciate Penny's tremendous charms.
