This afternoon’s ‘Tickets @ 2’ song is “Into The Night” by Benny Mardones.

With the opening line, “She’s just 16 years old, leave her alone, they said.” we understand if you think this song sounds a little statutory. Benny Mardones explained that the 16-year old he’s singing about was named Heidi, and she lived in his apartment building in Spanish Harlem.

Their relationship was purely platonic, however, Benny looked after Heidi and her family after her father left. Benny would pay her $50 a week to walk his basset hound, Zanky.

When you hear “Into The Night” between two and three we’ll take caller #14 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see Donny & Marie Christmas Los Angeles, coming to the Pantages Theatre.
