Oct. 1, 2022 marks the sixtieth anniversary of the night when Johnny Carson began his thirty-year run as host of The Tonight Show. We will mark that occasion by bringing you an encore presentation of our May 2011 tribute to The King of Late Night featuring Phil Gries of The Sounds of Lost Television. Phil will play highlights from Carson’s first ten years as host of The Tonight Show, including audio from his debut broadcast of Oct. 1, 1962, plus the first appearance of Carnac the Magnificent. Most of the tapes from the first decade of the Johnny Carson Tonight Show were erased by NBC, so this is a rare opportunity to hear Carson in his early days. Phil Gries will join us in our first hour.
Our second hour will include an encore presentation of our January 2022 conversation with Gabriel Jarret, the actor that most of you know best for his lead role as the fourteen-year-old whiz in the 1985 teen comedy Real Genius (also starring Val Kilmer). One of the few child stars who successfully made the transition to acting roles as an adult, Gabe has appeared in such films and TV series as The Karate Kid: Part 3, Apollo 13, Frost/Nixon, Goodnight Beantown, The American President, and the original 21 Jump Street.
Gabe recently played an auto repair shop owner/ambulance dispatcher in the true tornado survival motion picture 13 Minutes. He will soon be seen in the romantic comedy Ask Me to Dance (also starring Tom Malloy, Briana Evigan, Jesse Kove, and Joyce DeWitt), and in the limited series Bring on the Dancing Horses (starring Kate Bosworth). We’ll ask Gabe about all three of these projects, plus we’ll talk about his background in American Sign Language—a skill set that has helped him find work in many venues in between acting roles. We’ll replay our conversation with Gabe Jarret in our second hour.
