King of Nostalgia Joe Franklin

Rich Stevens ShowI had the honor and pleasure to be able to call Joe Franklin, my friend…

I was one of the people he gave a TV break too, not once, not twice but many times…

He first had me as a guest on his TV Show and then he brought me back numerous times as his co-host…

Each time was a thrill when my phone would ring and I would hear Joe’s voice saying…Uhhh Rich I have you booked for next Thursday, I’ll call you back in 15 minutes…

The first time he called and told me that I thought it was a joke, but it was real, very real…
I still remember the first time Joe invited me to his Times Square office, which was a tight space packed floor to ceiling with all kinds of crazy memorabilia, and he always knew exactly where each and every piece was, which he loved to show off…

The first time I was in his office I almost knocked down and entire wall of old news papers when I moved a chair to sit down…

I will never forget the great Joe Franklin…

He was truly one of a kind… RIP…
Here is a clip of the Legend, Joe Franklin…
