In Memory of David Frost
Everyone who worked with David Frost found his image stamped on one’s memory forever. The passing of this British television journalist just a few days ago brings to memory the times that I appeared on his television show years ago when it was recorded in NYC. He was remarkable in that we would be in the studio and the taping of the show would be delayed sometimes thirty or forty minutes. As it turned out that he had just flown in from London and was discussing with the staff who the guests were. I found it all the more remarkable and refreshing that Frost was able to understand and have a clear concept to share with his viewers his take on the person he was interviewing or showcasing. And boy, did I showcase with Frost. In one program in which groups of people were sitting around card tables with their hands on the tables and Frost and I talked about séances which of course were the rage in London for many decades. Lo and behold the card tables started dancing all over the place, wobbling here and there and at times tipping over. Frost covered it like he was covering a news event.
How I shall miss him.
My deepest condolences to his family.
