Video Valentine: Hey Paula (1978?)

From Sha Na Na:

Ginger (Pamela Myers, also the show's announcer) didn't get as many chances to sing as the band members did, but when she did, she proved she was equal to the task.

Case in point is this cover of Paul & Paula's seminal "Hey, Paula", partnered with Johnny Contardo.

Overall, the band's covers of 50's & 60's pop classics were on a par with the original material, especially if it's given to Johnny to sing lead.
