Dustin, I also ran home to see who might be on his show...it would be interesting to try to name many of those who appeared:
Kreskin(Built much of his career here.)
I've seen tv listings as follows for the Mike Douglas show (some may be reruns, and being syndicated, the tapes may have run on different days in different markets):Originally posted by DustinStinett:
I'm certain Ricky Jay was on Dinah several times, but I cannot recall him being on the Mike Douglas Show (that doesn't mean he wasn't).
I would suspect that the two 1977 entries were the same show/different market scenario. This would have been when he was out stumping Cards as WeaponsOriginally posted by Bill Mullins:

I've heard the story - it was Don Alan, as I recall...Originally posted by DDixon:
I remember hearing this story years ago, but I can't remember from whom. Mason Reese, a child star from the 1970s was co-host for the week on the Mike Douglas show. Every day they had a different magician on the show for Mason. Early in the week, Mason heckled one magician mercilessly (I believe this was Milbourne Christopher). The next day a close-up magician was on the show. As the director was about to go on the air with Reese, Douglas and the magician sitting at the table, the magician leaned over to Mason, put a firm hand on his arm and said, "If you mess with me I'll break your ***ing arm." Scene begins. Mason is EXTREMELY polite. Magician completes his set.
If anybody can confirm this or has heard this story before, please post.
