Al Flosso On Television

Postby Guest » December 7th, 2004, 8:38 pm

Can anyone please give me specific dates for Al Flosso's Televison appearances? He appeared on Ed Sullivan's 'Toast Of The Town', 'The Ed Sullivan Show', and 'Wonderama', among many others.

If possible, please give me the name of your source(s).

I'm trying to give Flosso a listing on the imdb.com website.

All right then; can anybody give me contact info for Gary Brown, who wrote the Flosso biography published by L&L in 1997?

Al was also part of a CBS "It's Magic" with Paul Tripp, along with A Robbins, Kuda Bux, Roy Bension, The Tuckers, and Fred Keating. I have this on DVD and better than any other copy in the world, it might have a slate at the head, not sure. I will try and check for you.

Thanks to everyone for responding. And to MaxNY: Please let me know about that 'It's Magic' DVD, particularly if it has a date of original broadcast and any other details.
