This photo is taken at Trump Plaza in Atlantic City when both Bill Cosby and Don Rickles were performing, and I’ll tell you right here I don’t remember if they were at the same Trump venue. The point is they showed up for the live radio show as did 60 Minutes. The latter was doing a documentary about Larrry which is why you see the cameras. Larry opened the show saying “Welcome to the program. For our friends in the audience here in Atlantic City. 60 Minutes is filming this so if you owe back taxes or aren’t where you told your spouse you’d be this evening, you’ve got five minutes to leave before they start filming.”
At least ten people hurried out of the room. I will tell you the audience was really polite that night.

 

I've never been one to get into photos but when we took the Larry King Show to the New Orleans Hilton for a series of live programs, I was able to book the always creative Stan Freeberg (Green Christmas is one bit you should listen to if you haven't done so. It's more relevant today than when he first recorded it in 1958). I grew up listening to this guy and it was a real treat to meet him.

Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. Sailing, like writing, has been a lifelong passion. The two have often been interwoven in stories and books.
