Long John Nebel With Jackie Gleason

WOR-AM November 1958 Here s a full hour example of one of the pioneers of talk radio from November 16, 1958. Long John Nebel hosted an overnight talk show on WOR-AM (later on WNBC and WMCA) that focused on the supernatural. Nebel always took the position of a skeptic who was looking for information. This CD features a show that featured Frank Edwards and author Gray Barker who wrote about the U.S. Government and UFO s. The third guest is comedian Jackie Gleason, who was a fan of the show and wrote an intro to a biography about Nebel. Gleason was only supposed to be on for a few minutes but he continued for the hour that you ll hear. Gleason took issue with Barker s writing and allegations. One of the historic parts of this CD is that this was the first ever three way telephone call ever put on the air since all of the guests on this segment were on the phone. The sound quality has been restored but does feature some medium quality periods. That doesn t take away from the fun and history of this CD. Total Time - 63:00
