TV show The Sound of Children
23 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

Debbie Reynolds taped this TV show when I was 13 years of age. I remember many children and her letting me be in it that day and not having to go to school. The day I was in the show they were shooting in San Diego , in a location I think called the Cove. It was high on a cliff looking out over the ocean. There was a suffer down there

and then there was a shark spotted. I don't remember if the camera crew filmed the suffer in harms way or not. I will tell you one thing , I never went swimming in the Pacific Ocean after seeing the sharks that day. That was the first time my step-mother let me be in her show. Maybe she just wanted company in the car for the drive down. I'm sure she gave me no mention and I was just one out of many children in it. It was no big deal to her or anyone else but to me as a child I will never forget it. Thank you Ms. Reynolds for giving me one fun day .
