Remember Jewel Akens And the Birds And The Bees

We had a garage sale this weekend, and you never know WHO might wander around the corner into a Hollywood yard sale! We noticed a handsome man looking at vintage music magazines and he told us his father was a “one hit wonder” in the 60’s. “WHO?” we squealed, and he said his father is Jewel Akens,who sang “The Birds and the Bees.” (He looked a lot like his dad) We had great memories of that song and the man promptly called up his father and we talked to him. What fun! Other musicians and fans at the sale got a big kick out of chatting with music producer Richard Akens. (Above – a clip of Jewel Akens on Shindig)
