Because of the job, the two are forced to spend many hours together alone in the wild.

His mother was a gentle, kind woman who often allowed her own needs and desires to give way to those of her husband and children. As Jack's memories come flooding back--of the course of a Texas summer in the 1950s--viewers observe Jack's evolving relationship with his parents, his younger brother, and God, while adult Jack questions the meanings of life, love, and family

Week after week, hangdog host G.K. serves as unflappable emcee to an amiable hodgepodge of radio-friendly acts that include the likes of popular country duo Yolanda and Rhonda Johnson and singing cowboys the Old Trailhands. This is one show where the under-the-line antics are nearly as entertaining as the program itself. The efforts of down-on-his-luck private dick and backstage doorkeeper Guy Noir discovers the true identity of a mysterious blonde and helps aspiring teen singer Lola to find her true voice before a live audience. There is still plenty of fun and mystery to be had at the old Fitzgerald before the final curtain falls

With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself-and so do its two leads: Joan is the band's pure Rock 'n' Roll heart, while Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is cast in the role of sex kitten. But during a tour of Japan at the peak of the band's quaalude-popping success, drugs and personality clashes drive a wedge between the girls that builds to a flash point, leading to an emotional and surprising conclusion.
