 I have been a Pat Boone fan for some 60 years. (oops!  Showing my age.) Pat gained fame in the 1950s with covers of tunes like “Tutti Frutti,” “Long Tall Sally,” and “Ain’t That a Shame.” Now he’s helping the 60 Plus Association, an advocacy group that bills itself as “the conservative alternative” to the AARP, to recycle material.

Boone is the pitchman in an ad that targets the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act, the health reform bill often called Obamacare. I talked with him recently, and he was a lot more interested in making the country more conservative than in talking about his early music.  Take a look below.
