Shelley’s Suitors

Shelley Fabares

Here’s a fun musical novelty that I somehow hadn’t noticed until now. James Darren, Paul Peterson, and Shelley Fabares were the “Teenage Triangle.” The title and cover design of the album implied a romantic competition for Shelley’s affection, which is a bit odd considering that Paul had played Shelley’s kid brother on “The Donna Reed Show.”

The first album did well enough to rate a follow-up. A lot of the songs sound as though they were intended to appeal to parents more than their teenage children.

  1. Great for what ails you, whether it be a rotten tooth (you), or a malfunctioning stomach (me). Life was so …. innocent back then!! Yeah, sort of weird, though, the love triangle, with Paul having played Shelley’s kid brother!
