Carson Classic

For a little levity, listen to this classic from the old Tonight show. A classic piece of comedy featering Jack Webb and Johny Carson in 1968. It stands the test of time well.

As a child i appeared on Candid Camera,they came to my school in New Jersey,and filmed myself and a few classmates talking about road signs,this was about 1967 ,it was shown on The Tonight show sometimein 68 or 69 during an Allen Funt Visit to the the show.
Ihave tried to get a clip or trancript from both the Tonight show archives and Candid Camera but they were erased and are part of the lost episodes of both shows.
I guess thay was my fiften minutes of fame.
So much for my music career :)
I miss the Carson Show and the intro theme
most of all.
Funny and true story
