The debut (Sunday, February 9, 1964 to be exact) is being remembered on a special 50th anniversary webcast as well as prime time special on CBS this Sunday.
Brill and McCall — still happy together — talked with KNX 1070’s Jim Thornton and Diane Thompson Friday about that eventful, historic, memorable night.
Maybe not so memorable for the comedians.
