The last thing listeners thought they'd hear on Thursday morning (Feb. 9) when they tuned in to "Sway in the Morning" on SiriusXM's Shade45 were fresh rhymes from Brady Bunch star Maureen McCormick. After all, when host Sway Calloway asked the woman best known for portraying uptight older sister and terrible football handler Marcia Brady on the beloved 1970s sitcom who her favorite rappers are, her first answer was... roots reggae legends Steel Pulse?
Pressed further, though, McCormick -- who came in to promote the Go Red for Women campaign, promoting heart health for women -- came up with one other name. "Vanilla Ice... who I just worked with." Okay, so what did you expect? Sway got it, saying that seemed like the right choice for a Marcia Brady. But pressed to say which contemporary MC McCormick might get down with, Calloway suggested something a bit edgier, say, Gucci Mane.
