Rockin' Funnies: Boogie Fever (1977)

Frank DeVol is best remembered for composing the themes to Family Affair, My Three Sons, & The Brady Bunch, among others. In 1977, DeVol was put in front of the camera as Happy Kyne, musical director of Fernwood 2-Night (and, later, America 2-Night), and every so often, Kyne and his band, the Mirth Makers, would do a number during the show.

In this case, it's a cover of the Sylvers' #1 hit, "Boogie Fever", which topped the charts a year earlier. As you'll see, Barth Gimble (Martin Mull) isn't too thrilled with Kyne's singing.......

Where was Chuck Barris when you really needed him?
