#14116: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1963-05-20, NBC, min.
Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon, Mort Sahl, Elsa Lancaster

October 1, 1962-May 22, 1992. Johnny Carson, host of NBC's network late-night "Tonight Show" reigned for 30 unprecedented years...five times the combined tenure of Steve Allen, and Jack Paar. Carson was impervious to competition, including efforts to dethrone him by Les Crane, Joey Bishop, Merv Griffin, Dick Cavett, Jack Paar, Pat Sajak, Joan Rivers, and Arsenio Hall. Sadly, very few complete "Tonight Show" broadcasts survive during Johnny Carson's first ten years of broadcasting. Around 1965, through the early 1970's, oldest tapes were first erased systematically by orders from myopic NBC executives, to be recycled for purposes of saving money. Ironically, in many cases, these older master tapes were too brittle, and portended probable drop-outs for re-use after being erased. Subsequently blank after being erased, these older questionable master 2" Quad tapes were either sparingly used or never used again for recording new programming and eventually were discarded. Saving thousands of dollars at the time (wiping master tapes for potential re-use) resulted in losing millions of dollars by NBC in today's marketplace, and more importantly wiping thousands of historic TONIGHT SHOW broadcasts, which contain precious personal anecdotes from political, show business, and sports icons of the past.

We are introduced to the show's opening by announcer Ed McMahon, who also jokes with Johnny Carson during his monologue. Guests are Mort Sahl and Elsa Lancaster. Sahl comments on current events.

Only Ruby Keeler, as advertised, appeared. She reminisces with Jerry and does a song and dance recalling her Hollywood Musicals with Dick Powell in the 1930's.

#14572: BARRY GRAY INTERVIEWS, THE: WMCA RADIO
1964-06-19, WMCA, 14 min.
Mort Sahl, Edward Kennedy, Barry Gray

Barry Gray was an American radio personality, often referred to as "the father of talk radio." His late-night New York City radio talk show was carried by WOR radio and then later by WMCA. 

Barry Gray returned to WMCA in 1950, and stayed there for 39 years, refining the talk show format still utilized today. During the 1960s, he was in the odd position of having an 11 p.m.-1 a.m. late-night talk show on a station otherwise dominated by Top 40 music and the youth-targeted "Good Guys" disc jockey campaign. But for teenagers who kept their radios on into the night, Gray's show was a window into the high-brow New York culture of the 1940s and 1950s.

Barry's guest is comedian Mort Sahl who is interrupted by a news bulletin about a plane crash involving Senator Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts. 



Host: Barry Gray.
