John Farnham appeared on The Don Lane Show in 1980 and performed the ballad 'Sometimes When We Touch' before sitting down with Don Lane and his special guest, entertainer Sammy Davis Jr.

Davis Jr is impressed with John's talent and questions him about his plans for his career.

Not one to be overawed on any occasion, even when performing in front of 'entertainment royalty', John is his usual affable self and slips easily into an almost intimate conversation with Davis Jr.

John's self-deprecating humour, on display in this clip, is a personality trait that has endeared him to Australians for decades.
