Customer Reviews

Well worth it

This is a well done podcast- I love the show business history that comes out during each interview. It is great for younger people too, both performers and fans, to hear these people talk. This guy does his homework too.

Everything Carson and More

If you have any interest in Johnny Carson and the era of late night when he reigned, you will many enjoyable conversations here. I have listened to them all and even the guests who I had a fleeting interest in had insights to contribute. For the hardcore behind-the-scenes, check out Carson's nephew and exec-in-charge of his estate, Jeff Sotzing, former NBC chief Fred Silverman and "host whisperer" exec producer Peter Lassally. For great entertainment, there are Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Bob Einstein and more. Often, you will get a behind-the-scenes of an established comedian who shares what it was like to do the show and his or her life was changed forever. There is no outlet in media like this today. Mark Malkoff makes every guest feel welcome. He demonstrates extensive knowledge of the Carson legacy, as well as providing a fan's p.o.v. when looking back at this amazing era. Highly recommended.

Amazing Access

I am amazed that the host gets so many of the greats from the Carson era to appear on this podcast. They are quite open and forthcoming with their opinions about not only Johnny, but many others in the entertainment industry. I think Mark's enthusiasm and good heartedness are one of the main reasons they agree to be interviewed in such a unstructured format. I imagine they talk to friends who were interviewed by Mark for the podcast and are told almost without exception that the interview was a fun experience where they get to re-live long ago days when they were either at the start of, or at the peak of their careeers.
