Because the Kenyan squatter is in town, Tim Conway show was discussing fundraisers. Callers, who have attended fundraisers, were phoning in and telling what happens at the events. Here is the best anecdote.
A young cadet from Cal State Fullerton was there with other cadets as part of the Honor Guard. When Reagan greeted them, he asked the cadet his name and was open to a question from him. The cadet said, "Can I ask anything?" The President said he could. So the cadet said (paraphrasing) -
Cadet - Mr. President, do you remember when you were doing a sound check and said you were going to bomb the Soviet Union in five minutes?"
Reagan - Yes.
Cadet - What in the world were you thinking when you said that?
Reagan - (a few seconds of silence) Well, a boy can dream, can't he?
I love ‘awesome man’. Do they still do Friday night gigs in Valencia?
Friday night gigs in Valencia? I don’t understand.
KFI’s TC jr, used to do his show live from Valencia on Friday nights right outside the Hyatt. I often stay in that hotel (last weekend even) . He would always promo the events by saying, “I’m going to be in ‘Awesome Town’ (Valencia) on Friday”. Anyway I met him a few times while he was doing his show - very funny guy.
I need to visit Simi Valley again
Tim’s son has the radio gig
Tim senior is about the funniest guy ever.
When I was at the Basic School at Quantico (USMC Infantry Platoon Leader course) one of our Tactics instructors looked like and did a great imitation of Tim Conway.
Another Tactics instructor was Capt. Oliver North... Yep, that Ollie North!
He does not do that Friday show from Valencia anymore.
