On the August 18 "Morning Edition" national broadcast on NPR is an enchanting telling of Dai Vernon's quest to find Allen Kennedy in Kansas City. The piece also features clips of the Professor as well as an appearance by Darwin Ortiz!

Be sure and scroll all the way to the bottom.

There is a great article about Al Cohen after the

part about Vernon with a dozen pictures of the

shop, two video clips of Al doing magic...Mike

A very nice piece. Thank you, Barry Gordemer!

It's a treat to see the "good old days," five years ago, when Al was still behind the counter at his shop.
