"Here's Johnny!" Today I'm offering three pieces of memorabilia from the world's most recognized Late-Night Show Host, the one and only Johnny Carson. From the first day on October 1st, 1962, when Johnny Carson took over as the new host of the late-night talk show from Jack Paar, no one could have imagined that for the next 30 years Johnny would be known as "The King of Late Night" talk shows. The three items are listed below along with their condition:
1."Life Magazine" dated January 23, 1970, featuring Johnny Carson on the front cover. The story on Johnny is titled "Johnny Carson The Lonesome Hero of Middle America", and is featured on 9 pages. The story is about Johnny going to Lubback, Texas, to perform a live show and spending his free time with the folks who live in town and then getting ready for his show. **Condition: The covers are in good condition, clean and bright, and the inside pages are in very good condition, clean and bright. *Covers: There is wear along the spine, minor chipping and a ½” tear along the top edge, minor chipping along the right front edge, and tiny crease marks at the corners. There is also some light wear on the front cover. *Inside pages: There is a tiny tear along the top and right edges of the first inside pages, small water mark at the top right corner of the inside of the front cover and the first two pages, and a few of the pages have a very tiny tear along the right edge.
2.A vintage "TV Guide" featuring Johnny Carson on the front cover. The TV Guide is dated July 30, 1966, Issue Number 696, Volume 14, Number 31, and is a Philadelphia Edition. A story titled "They Remember Johnny" as his home town recalls a young Johnny growing up in Norfolk, Nebraska. Also in this issue are short stories about Bette Davis, John Davidson and the Beatles. **Condition. The covers are in good condition, clean and bright, and the inside pages are in very good condition, clean and bright. *Covers: There is minor wear and four tiny tears along the spine, minor wear along the edges, tiny crease marks at all the corners, a ¼” tear at the bottom front edge, and chipping along the top back edge.
3.A "TV Time Program Guide" with shows from August 12th thru August 18th, 1979. This TV Time was found in the Philadelphia Bulletin Newspaper. There is a one page story about Johnny titled "Was Johnny taking lessons from Henry"(Kissinger).” A fantastic cover shows a young lady in bed who falls asleep watching Johnny and then dreaming all about the show. The cover shows true to life drawings of Johnny, Ed McMahon, Doc Severinsen, and four of the characters he played on his show. A great item to frame. **Condition: The covers are in good+ condition, clean and bright, and the inside pages are in very good condition, clean and bright. *Covers: There is a tiny tear at the top front edge and the right front edge, a tiny piece is missing from the bottom front right corner, minor chipping along the left back edge, and a very tiny piece is missing from the bottom left back corner.
“I know for 30 years Johnny went to bed with your mom, grandmother, your sweetheart, and your wife and they never cheated on you.” On December 17th, 1969, over 58 million people turned in to the Johnny Carson show to watch something very special. Do you remember what that was?
If you grew up viewing Johnny Carson from his first show on October 1, 1962, through his very last show on May 22, 1992, you will enjoy these wonderful pieces of Johnny Carson memorabilia.
