It’s fantastic how fast a ball rolls once it starts moving. The Cowsills, the young singing family who were struggling unknowns 18 months ago, living in an out-size, unheated house in Newport, R.I., and trying not to sell the furniture will have the usual honor of having an entire one-hour segment of the Today Show devoted to them.
On Monday, Hugh Downs and Barbara Walters will interview all the Cowsills – not only the four brothers, Mamma and Susie who form the performing end – but father Bud Cowsill and the other two brothers, all three of whom form the managing end of the act.
The Cowsills made their network TV debut on the Today Show two years ago.
They are now one of MGM Records’ top acts, and their first single, “The Rain, The Park and Other Things” was No. 1 in the country last November.
