I was not sure whether to do a post about Larry King announcing his retirement or just put a photo in Random Photos, but as you can see, the post idea won. I give Larry King a bunch of crap for being a big butt kisser to celebrities and the fact that he kind of paved the way for all of the morning shows to kind of follow his lead.
At the same time though, when he put away all of that celebrity shine and became the guy he was on the radio for so many years he could still work some magic. His old radio call in show was gold because it was on late at night and he would give anyone the time of day to say what they had to say.
Here are two clips. One is when he interviewed Marlon Brando. I am posting the first part, but I encourage you to go watch the other parts. It was one of his best celebrity interviews. The clip starts with a commercial, but it is there. Be patient. The other segment is from one of the best discussions on UFO's ever. Again, I am just posting the first part, but I encourage you to go dig out the others.
