Another fan contributes
. . .
Friendly Junction fan, Matt (from Kentucky),
shared a photo of his “Have a Nice Day” 45 rpm record, along with the
following memories . . .
“I looked up Friendly Junction on Yahoo and came across
your piece about that show. I lived in Columbus in the
early 70s and I ended up with a 45 rpm of that show. I still have it to this day . . . One side has "Have a Nice Day"
and the flip-side is "The Numbers Song". From 1972-73. Music was by Window Pane. Sung by Leslie Podkin.
. . . Actually I don't remember
much of the show at all. I don't remember even how long it lasted or any of the details of it . . . when I watched the show, I was 4 years old. I am 39 now. I do remember my mom taking me to
some kind of autograph session for Friendly Junction at either a mall or department store somewhere in Columbus. I think it was an autographed picture or something like that.
. . . I do remember the lyrics . . . if that will help . . .here are the lyrics to "Have A Nice
"Today's a nice day to something
nice for somebody,
It makes you feel good from your head down to your toes,
Happiness you know, is something
you can share,
So give a grin to someone near
and show him that you care,
Today's a nice day to lend a
helping hand to somebody,
To start the right way put a
smile upon your face,
To make your day worthwhile,
just start each morning with a great big smile,
have a nice day. Have a nice
day . . .

Haaaave a smile at everybody
'cause it doesn't cost a dime,
We'd sing another chorus but
we haven't got the TIME,
Have a nice day!"
