Heeeeer's Johnny!

Back in the early 70's, when I was trying to get into the TV Biz, one of my first jobs was working as a page for NBC in Burbank. One of the greatest experiences of my life!
We worked on all the big shows...Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Jack Benny, George Burns, Perry Como, Elvis Presley, and the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and many more.....
Ed gave us advice, was always congenial, and I will never forget the night when he was pitching"Alpo" dog food, the dog refused eat out of the doggie bowl...Carson crawled back stage on all fours, barked and subbed for the uncooperative dog....It was a legendary moment!
God Bless!
