  • American Promise (circa 1986) 3 minute dialoque, NBC

  • Courtesy of Henri from Germany and his amazing research. We would like to know if anyone has connections that would make these appearances available. As in someone who works for one of the Networks or shows or ...
    email me at the website Contact. Apparently, one of the Conan shows is available at the Archives but we don't know which. Also, the Letterman appearances are not listed as someone (we know) posted them on youtube and the links are on the website under Updates below. So here's the list of ones we can't find (yet) ...
