Don’t you mean that Jack Jones was on “Password” to test his Word Skills?
word play? jack jones very first tv appearance forced him to change the lyric from cadillac to chevrolet during the WHOLe LOT OF LIVING’ NUMBER,,,,,,,,i missed that game show WORD FOR WORD—–remember??
Yes, if Jack Jones was going to show off his work skills, Allen Ludden would ask him to sing! Jack is still alive and still performs!
Whoops. It definitely should be “word play” and not “work play.” Thanks for the correction.
