Ed McMahon has passed away at age 86. Listen to Andrea Shea King’s great interview with McMahon. It is from Nov. 31, 2007 when his last book came out “When Television Was Young, Live, Spontaneous and in Living Black and White”. The interview runs 15-minutes and includes his famous “Heeeeeere’s Johnny!” Andrea is working on a written piece about McMahon. I’ll post the link when available. I grew up watching Johnny Carson. I have always been a night owl so I watched lots of the Tonight show. I have fond memories of my dad and me laughing our heads off at the Carson/McMahon team.
UPDATE: Andrea’s excellent tribute to Ed McMahon is up at Big Hollywood. It includes great pictures and video.
