    "The Johnny"

    Does anyone remember the songs that were written about Johnny Orr? I was going through some old cassette tapes yesterday and ran across one that an Ames radio station made for us. We played it on the way to one of the Big 8 Tournaments. It only has five songs: ISU fight son, "We are Iowa State," "A Man Called Johnny Orr," "The Johnny," and one of my favorites "Marvelous." Those were fun times! Mrs. yCy

    My daughter was going through some old LP's (that means records for you people born after 1985) and i had an old record that some gas station put out with a bunch of ISU/Johnny songs. We don't have a turntable so we couldn't play it but as i remember from back in the day it was quite a stitch
