Our Songs The Osmonds Gold Lettering
Mon 28 Jan 2019

The Osmonds were four to begin with — Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay. “Walt Disney discovered us and put us on his shows,” the latter tells me from the Scottish Highlands (he hasn't come across Nessie yet but has a friend in Inverness who tells him the monster is real). He continues, “Then Andy Williams saw us and we were on his show for about nine years.” It was on Williams' programme that Donny joined them, and it was here that the brothers learnt to play instruments. “Every week we were told we had to do something different. So one week we had to learn to play piano, and the next we had to learn to play saxophone.” The show opened up their understanding, he says, not just of playing music but of its production too. “We were blessed to have that as our vehicle.”
