Remembering Ed McMahon

AIR DATE: June 24, 2009

Ed McMahon is most famous for his many years as second banana to Johnny Carson. But he made frequent appearances in Las Vegas with Johnny Carson and with Jerry Lewis as his sidekick on the Muscular Dystrophy Association's annual Labor Day telethon. We talk about McMahon's frequent appearances in Las Vegas with Jerry Fink, Las Vegas Sun Entertainment Reporter and Ed Nigro, manager of both the Sahara Hotel-Casino and the old Aladdin Hotel-Casino when Ed McMahon appeared at those venues.
