    Not for me. I don't stream. If I can't record it, I ain't interested in it.

    Very cool! I miss Carson. I’ve never really paid attention to that channel, but I see it on PlutoTV as I scroll around. Have to look a bit more closely now.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Answer: "Dirty socks, wet sawdust, and oat bran," which Ed repeats. Johnny tears open the envelope, blows into it, removes paper
    Question: "Name three things that taste like oat bran?"

    They made a deal for all 5000 hours of Carson. Also made a deal for the Cannell library.

    I was wondering why the Johnny Carson YouTube channel was so active recently after being dormant for a while. Now we know!

    I only wish they would (or could) show the musical performances.

    Is there a list someplace of surviving rock/soul/country acts they have but can't release?

    I know of three extant clips:

    - the kiddie group Gary & The Hornets

    - a very poor quality, color clip of Paul Revere and The Raiders (featuring their guitar-duel stage routine, which may not be available anywhere else)

    - a blind young folk singer whose name I have unfortunately forgotten

    Perhaps someday, if we survive, someone will find the Feb '64 show where Sam Cooke sang "A Change Is Gonna Come", almost a year before it was released

    He is the only person I ever saw blow into an envelope. What's up with that? Do people do this? Was that just theatrics?

    It's theatrics plus it facilitates removing the piece of paper from each envelope in a fluid motion.

    If you're into rock, Carson hated rock and didn't want rock acts on the show. From what I read, they had booked The Youngbloods on the show and they came in and were being all kinds of pains in the asses. He didn't like the music to begin with and after that, he said screw it, and didn't want rock acts to be booked anymore.

    Wouldn't Wang Chung be considered rock music? They played on Johnny's show in 1987.

    Very nice hope there is truly some new material in there and not just a rehash of what's been put on VHS, DVD and AntennaTV all these years

    He may have softened his stance by then. I'm talking about the 60s and 70s era. Don't really care much about the music after that.

    I would love a complete DVD collection of just the skits.

    After the Youngbloods incident in 1969 Carson pretty much blackballed rock acts until David Bowie was on c. 1982. From that point rock acts became more common, especially on shows hosted by Joan Rivers in her pursuit of the youth demo. One of the very few (only?) times I watched her host was when she had on Elvis Costello. Hell, Leno even had on John Cale.

    But while rock acts almost completely vanished from the show in the '70s, there is a curious exception: The Bee Gees were on at least twice. I guess Stigwood used his clout/called in some markers.

    He didn't like rock. But he enjoyed having fun and wanging chung, in moderation.

    In the '70s Buddy Rich was on Tonight delivering one of his infamous anti-rock rants when Carson interrupted him and said The Beatles actually did some good things -- ironic, considering Carson's no-rock-guests policy of the '70s. Even more surprising, Rich agreed with him.

    It's never occurred to me to do, ever. Bit allegedly stolen from Ernie Kovacs's "Mr. Question Man" anyway.

  24. Also worth noting there is a Johnny Carson channel on Sirius XM as part of their streaming-only channels.

    Carson did have Alice Cooper on in June 1977. IIRC Cooper had his snake with him and the snake proceeded to wrap himself around Carson, who apparently had no fear of snakes.
