Mel Simons' telephone interviews read like conversations between close friends. You'll think you're eavesdropping on a party line. And if you're old enough to remember party lines, you're sure to love this book. Clayton Moore recites "The Lone Ranger Creed"; Gale Storm (My Little Margie) opens up about her courageous battle with alcoholism; Larry Storch (F Troop) comments on the state of today's off-color comedy; eighty-year-old George Jessel tries to steal Mel's girlfriend; and legendary crooner (and former barber) Perry Como offers to give Mel "a good haircut." Included here are interviews with Soupy Sales, Milton Berle, Willard Waterman, Steve Allen and many others.
