Roger Carroll 1976

Roger Carroll and Tom Smothers
 
Roger did a LOT of shows.  From the 1950s through the 80s the Happy Hour brought us the Best Sounds in Town.
 
From 1976, Here's Roger
 

Just got off the phone with Roger.  He said that he and Beverly were in a small town in Arizona, the local station had Roger Carroll on the air.  He wasn't syndicating a program.  Stops at the station, asks for the manager.  "May I have your name please?" "Roger Carroll" (from the offices) "Aw, &%$#!!!" The manager comes out "You're not gonna kill me, are you?".  What happened was the station took the recruiting shows and the AFRTS shows, edited them and put them on the air.  Roger took it more as tribute more than anything else...
