A cousin from Illinois sent me a link to view Life Magazine online.
This may not be genealogy, but it is a media form of some great history. I just read thru an interesting article about Johnny Carson. You might ask, who is Johnny Carson? Well, he took Jack Paar's place on TV's The Tonight Show. You remember... Johnny Carson with his "side-kick" & announcer Ed McMahon ~ you know... "Heeeeeeeeeer's Johnny!" OK, Carson was the guy who had the show before Jay Leno. What, you ask who is Jay Leno??? Alright, all of these people were the predecessors for The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien!
As you can see, even the 23 Jan 1970 issue of Life Magazine has some interesting history.
