Musical Interlude: Daisy a Day (1972)

Singer-songwriter-comic Jud Strunk hit the top 20 on the Hot 100 and #4 on the Adult Contemporary chart in 1972 with "Daisy a Day", the title tune from his album. Strunk peaked at #33 on the country chart, but "Daisy" would reach #1---in Australia.

Strunk appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson to perform "Daisy", and would later join the cast of Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In for its final season.

A licensed pilot, Strunk passed away in 1981 from a heart attack while on a plane.
