Cocktail Nation 318 Johnny Carson

Posted in bachelor pad, lounge music, retro, johnny carson by cocktailnation on June 22nd, 2014
The king of television Johhny Carson reigned supreme for decades on the box and is part of the mid century story arc that we just love here on the cocktail nation.
His story is so very big that it's difficult to do it justice so I thought let's take a look at the beginning of his career and what made the man. We have a look at a nice book on mid century culture to check out and how would you like to own a derelict nineteen twenties movie theatre in LA? Well there is one up for grabs!
