hiya, Mr. Dunnaghy

Me and my dad loved this part of Jackie Gleason's American Scene Magazine. Craz (Frank Fontaine) would come out, tell a funny story or two, then sing. For me it was the opening shot, which was always the same: the greeting, the pouring of the beer - just the intimacy of the camera like I was there in Joe's bar. Yes, even at the tender age of 8. Ha!

But most of all...it was watching my father laugh. When he laughed I always felt like everything was always going to be OK.
