SAD DAY IN THE WORLD OF SECOND BANANAS.

HHHIIIIIOOOO

HHHIIIIIOOOO

As the #2 guy on the Mark & Walt show, it is with a heavy heart I have to say that Ed McMahon has died.  His death was reported this morning at the age of 86.  Ed was known to the world as Johnny Carson’s sidekick and co-host for decades.  Ed’s style and turn of the word was the perfect foil for Johnny’s dandy approach to both comedy and late-night entertainment.  The world has lost the number one “number two” guy and so it goes.  By the way, the following excerpt is from USAToday.com back in 2006:


ED’S THE TOPS!!

Greatest sidekick of all time?  According to Entertainment Weekly, in the issue hitting newsstands Monday, it’s Johnny Carson’s longtime couch-warmer, Ed McMahon.  The magazine picked what it deemed an all-time top-50 of second bananas.  Want to guess?  Rounding out the top five, in order: Robin (Batman’s boy wonder), Jerry Seinfeld’s pal George Costanza, Han Solo’s buddy Chewbacca and Lucy Ricardo’s partner-in-crime and sometimes slime, Ethel Mertz.

SO AS I SAID, ED’S DEAD AND MARK’S GOT A BIG HEAD.

ONLY FROM THE MIND OF MARK EVANS.

ONLY FROM THE MIND OF MARK EVANS.

I turn now to the “HEAD” of the Mark & Walt program.  (Notice, though, I am not saying the brains of the outfit!)  According to double secret top-level meetings with the production team of Marquette county’s favorite morning show, there are some changes on the horizon for Mark & Walt in the Morning.  What they are cannot be revealed at this time, but suffice to say, when they happen, you’ll know it!!  All you have to do, though, is just keep listening, and WE’LL BRING THE CHANGES DIRECTLY TO YOU!!  Now THAT’S service!

MORE TO COME TOMORROW!

We’ll see you guys tomorrow when I have the time to catch up with some of the recent interviews we have conducted on the show in the Sunny Studios and get those bits posted accordingly.

See you all then!
