ROCKOLLECTIONS: JOHNNY CARSON LEAVES TONIGHT SHOW PT.2

Please remember that these shows were originally broadcast in 2007.
That was before Conan O'Brien's brief turn as Host of the Tonight Show
Also add 6 years to whatever I say- for example if I say 15 years, it is now 21 years.
As stated, TODAY, May 22nd was the anniversary of the night Johnny Carson left the Tonight Show.
And you may have noticed a certain trend of "Tonight" songs.
We will continue that, double it, and even triple it!
First up, a real pretty one from Sara Evans.
I'll have a little Carson biography for you, leading right into Karnac The Magnificent.
I will confess to one of my own personal quirks about opening envelopes.
And my opinion that Johnny Carson was not a big fan of Rock & Roll, he was a fan of the Big Band Era, and if I am not mistaken a drummer.
Of all the late night hosts, he was the last to come around to our music.
It occurred to me, that for younger listeners or perhaps those from another country not familiar with the show, I am trying to "Teach You Tonight". Ha!
Any Dion fans out there?- Dion from BELMONT AVENUE IN THE BRONX, NEW YORK that is- here is an alert.
We will have much much more fun to come.
Dah dah dah dum dum...!

I didn't notice her face...

Oh baby, that works fine.

Nice rack eh?

Oh and her face is nice too, lol!

Waiting on you to build that house.  As far as Sara Evans goes, I'll save you the trouble.  How does this work for you?

Comment by Mike Pell on May 25, 2013 at 12:05pm

Jon, you let the cats do that?
I wonder what THEY spit up, lol?

The have enjoyably rough sandpapery tongues though...I like it.

RJ,
Yeah, that was one of the high points of the show for me, Karnac The Magnificent.
And when Ed would repeat the answer after Johnny said it, and he would give that glare or sometimes made a crack.
Plus I was mesmorized by the opening of the envelopes...never saw that before, lol!
It was fun to pull that old Magic song out and it seemed to fit right there.
And put it this way, I like the Genesis song well enough to think of it, lol!
So the Golden Pell to Sara Evans, the only relatively new song I played there.
I'll go along with that.
I've never seen her so I'll check her out.
But you and Jon couldn't be more different, lol!
Always strikes me funny!
A good idea, I might just have played the 18 Visions song Tonightless as a show closer.
But I did the shows 6 years ago, and I can't go back in time.
Well I imagine I could somehow edit it in, but I don't have the song, and besides that, I am working on a future Series.
Remember that Building A House suggestion?
Thanks for listening, writing, and NOT making me queasy,
Mike

No, I don't lick myself clean. That would be sick.

I let the cats do that.

Comment by Mike Pell on May 25, 2013 at 11:21am

You manually clean your cats?

That's a funny line, lol!
But I hear, and I can't say where, that you lick YOURSELF clean!

I HOPE that's not true, lol!

Comment by Jon on May 25, 2013 at 11:15am

Could be fur balls, I manually clean my cats.

Comment by Mike Pell on May 25, 2013 at 11:11am
Jon,
No on the Sara Evans, but a yes for Dion.
That's cool for me.
As for Pilot, they must be one-hit-wonders because I can't think of anything else.
It's Dinah Washington, and that is a surprise that you thought it was TREMENDOUS.
As for the class in you, we will get to that, lol!
You were waiting for that Genesis song?
You knew I would play it? You were reading my mind...wow!
Have a beer then...you deserve it!
There was nothing filthy about Karnac, lol!
It was the top, the cap, of the pen- and yes I think I found it.
Just made me laugh that the moment the microphone came on, the cap fell out of my hand and starting bouncing around on the floor- and you realize that you can't even look down to see where it is, lol!
Now getting back to your class...that wasn't phlegm...it was a FUR BALL!!!
YOU ARE COUGHING UP FUR BALLS!!!
AND SWALLOWING THEM BACK DOWN!!!
You PROUDLY scooped it back up and SWALLOWED IT!!!
OH THE HUMANITY...!!!
Damn, I have to go lie down again, LOL!
Thanks for listening, writing, and making me queasy several times- you are one of a kind,
Mike
