Record Comments:  This "Famous American Stars" Series record includes an open-end interview about The Monkey's Uncle with Annette Funicello on side one.  The record opens with a sample of the title song featuring Annette and The Beach Boys.  There are blank sections that proceed Annette's answers, so that radio announcers may insert their questions following a script.  The entire title song plays after a question about the song is asked, followed by a few more questions.

Side two includes a similar program for a non-Disney property.  During the interview, Shirley Burden discusses his book, Behold Thy Mother.

The record was originally offered for free at a local Buena Vista office, as shown in the campaign press book (see page 3 below.)
