5.0 out of 5 stars "Hi-yoooooooo!" September 19, 2012
HERE'S JOHNNY is a 1974 CASABLANCA Records 2-LP set which includes a 33×22 yellow-backgrounded poster that has a sequence of Johnny on three portable TVs (green, blue and red tinted) doing his trademark invisible golf club swing. A 27 paragraph essay called "The History of the Tonight Show" is printed at bottom in six short columns.

All is neatly contained in a single cover (this is NOT a gatefold album), as the 25th anniversary celebration of a late night variety program that had gone through several title, personnel and format changes and one network switch over the years.

The Tonight Show began life 5/22/50 on NYC's WABC-TV (7) as Broadway Open House. The original host was Pat Harrington. A switch to WNBT-TV (4) was next with Jerry Lester, then Morey Amsterdam emceeing. When the program went national, a dumb blonde named Dagmar plus celebrity guests and slapstick vaudeville were its forté. BOH's run ended 8/24/51.

In late July '53, Steve Allen revived the late-night format on New York's local NBC channel (4 again) under the name "Tonight." On 9/27/54, the Tonight Show had its national debut. With the exception of a six-month respite in 1962 and annual summer reruns, it hasn't been off the air since. Steve and a gaggle of goofy geese (who all went on to greater fame) were backed by Skitch Henderson's music. Allen left in late January '57 and Jack Lescoulie took over with "Tonight! America After Dark." Lescoulie struggled for an audience and was replaced by NY deejay Al 'Jazzbow' Collins, who also flopped. Jack Paar came along to save the day on 7/29/57.

"Tonight--Starring Jack Paar" was a phenomenal success. He created the "family of guests" concept; his Tonight Show was the first to be broadcast in color.
