"I was playing chess in the Magic Castle library, and a friend of mine came in and said there was a table in the restaurant I might like to hang out with. So I went along and ended up spending some time with Johnny Carson, Dick Cavett, and Orson Welles. Bruce Cervon had just been showing them some things ..."

Bravo! Good memory.

"A week ago I was up in the library playing chess with Ray Grismer when Bill Larsen walked in and asked me to go with him to one of the dining rooms to meet some friends. When I walked into the room there seated at a table were Johnny Carson, Dick Cavett, and Orson Welles. John Daniels and his wife and friends were also there and I must say it looked like a panel show! Bruce Cervon had just finished entertaining them and I could tell from their comments that they were very pleased. Ron Wilson was also there and I believe that he, also, had done a show for them."

Excerpt from Genii, April 1976.
