[regarding meeting Connie Francis in the late 1960s] At that time the public was allowed to attend the Ed Sullivan Show dress rehearsals on Sunday afternoon. The theatre used in those days was very small and the public sat in the balcony. The main floor was only about 6 or 8 rows deep. I remember it sure looked different from what you saw on TV. Ed Sullivan didn't stand in front of the curtain as it looked on TV. He stood in front of a dummy curtain off to the side. The only other performers I remember on with Connie were Bob and Ray. Their act was quite technical so it was recorded for broadcast for that evening. Was I ever surprised when Ed introduced Connie. It was a great thrill for me to see her in person. I was just a Nebraska kid (21 years old) in the service. It's hard to describe the thrill I went through. Of course like any red blooded American boy, I was in awe of her beauty and talent. WOW, what a thrill.
