Q: My friend and I sang on the Mr. Peppermint show when we were 14, so sometime in late 1966 early 1967. I read that you still have an extensive file of videos and was wondering how I might go about seeing it? We sang, "Puff the Magic Dragon" and an original song, "I Am Alone." Mr. Hayes was genuinely one of the nicest persons I have ever met. I was so very sad to hear of his death.
A: Good to hear from you. “Peppermint Place” was a staple on WFAA for many years. Jerry Haynes passed away in 2011. His longtime sidekick Vern Daily passed away the following year. We miss them both. As for your request, unfortunately the digital archiving we enjoy today wasn’t around in the 60s, thus putting a hand on the exact episode would be like finding a needle in a haystack. We do have some of the episodes, however they not cataloged such that we could find your performance. Kathie, wish we could be of more assistance.
