Bette Midler Bids Adieu to Johnny Carson 21 Years Ago Today (Video)
Where were you 21 years ago tonight? Do you remember? I do because it was the last night that Johnny Carson hosted the Tonight Show. I loved Carson and so my then-husband, Ed and I were watching. This impromptu moment with the amazing Bette Midler remains my favorite from that show.
It’s funny the memories that stick with you. Ed and I had just rented a new place on Palm Street in Bangor and we were getting it ready to move in. The kids’ room needed to be painted, so we grabbed our brushes, propped a TV up on a chair, and multi-tasked. I’m amazed the room got finished because we spent most of that hour glued to the TV!
Enjoy this touching rendition “Here’s That Rainy Day” on this rainy day, and remember the king of late night!
