Over the years, I have continued to receive remarkable letters from my “kids”, those adults who remember spending time with me on Wonderama or  Just for F un in the 1960s, and who just wanted to say hello or share their the memories. Some of these we have archived on our website, and they are, remarkable testimony to the long-lasting impression we left on the lives of these young folks.


Recently I received another note of this kind, that led to an interesting exchange of emails. As I went through this exchange, it occurred to me that maybe more of you would like to engage not just in the communication, but in a conversation.


So, as of now, we are starting this Chatting with Sonny addition the website. If any of you are up to such a conversation and want to approach me with an opening gambit, please do. Ifn the exchange it leads to an interesting conversation we, will post it. I will continue to do this as  long as I have the energy and as long as you are interested.

Dear Mr. Fox,

May I ask that you please indulge me? I have a story I think you may be interested in which both indirectly and directly involves you and my family on several levels.

Hi Sonny - I am a 68 year old rower living in Charlotte, NC. Our boat club has a Vespoli Double named the Irwin "Sonny" Fox, obviously named for you. I do not know from whom we purchased the boat, but I have often wondered about the name. I looked you up and discovered...

Dear Mr. Fox, I am in the middle of your book and words cannot describe the many feelings. Also, I was on the show as a kid in 1965 and Gary Lewis and the Playboys were also on that day.

It was a once in a lifetime experience that I shall always cherish. Much love from...
