You asked me specifically
about Bob and writing a song, "Wind", while on a trip up the Oregon coast.
That would be my sister, Christine. They had a kind of a thing going for
quite some time before he remarried.. I know she would be the one who would
have been with him because they had quite a little interest in each other
for quite awhile.
We worked with them and
were great admirerers of the Pioneers. They were really, I think, quite
wonderful. And, of course, Bob Nolan was a complete maverick and a wonderful
talent. We loved working together and we loved singing with them and they
loved singing with us.
I don't know why the Open
Spaces pilot never jelled because it was quite well accepted by just about
everybody. We were sort of soul mates musically and so, you know, I think we
appreciated each other a great deal and loved singing together and it
I had a terrible crush on
Roy, of course, which did me no good at all! But we were very good friends
with them and knew all of them - the original group with Tim Spencer and Roy
and Bob and the Farr Brothers. We were good friends. (excerpts from a
