"Back to the Past" - On "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson

Auf dem Weg von der Mittagspause zu seinem Büro hörte Johnny Carson ein lautes Lachen  aus
dem 'editing room" bei NBC in Burbank schallen. "What's so funny here", fragte Johnny und trat in den Schneideraum.

"Well, there is this German teacher in New York, who teaches foreign languages by singing and here he's  teaching French to New York construction workers,"antwortete der Cutter." This is funny stuff!" sagte Johnny.  Am 5. November um 3 Uhr 1990 klingelte das Telefon in meiner New Yorker Wohnung. "This is the Tonight Show", sagte eine freudlichen Stimme. "Are you the singing language teacher?" "Ja!?????" antwortete ich. "We would like to invite you to the Tonight Show next week. Can you come out to California?" - Ich war überzeut, dass mir jemand einen Streich spielen wollte und antwortete: "Is this a joke?" -"No, I am John McColough from the Tonight Show! We would like to invite you.

Ich bat um die Telefonnummer und rief zurück. Kein Witz!!  Eine Woche später war ich Gast bei Johnny Carson. Der Auftritt in der "Tonight Show" veränderte mein Leben. Auf folgendem Link ist ein Teil meines Auftrittes zu sehen:
 
On the way from lunch to his office, Johnny Carson heard a loud laugh in the editing room at NBC in Burbank. "What's so funny here," asked Johnny as he stepped into the editing room. "Well, there is this German teacher in New York, who teaches foreign languages ​​by singing, and here he's teaching French to New York construction workers," replied the editor. "This is funny stuff!" said Johnny. On November 5, 1990 at 3:00 a.m., the phone rang in my New York apartment. "This is the Tonight Show," said a cheerful voice. "Are you the singing language teacher?" "Yes!?????" I answered. "We would like to invite you to the Tonight Show next week. Can you come out to California?" - I was convinced that someone wanted to prank me and replied: "Is this a joke?" - "No, I am John McColough from the Tonight Show! We would like to invite you. I asked for the phone number and called back. No joke!! A week later I was a guest of Johnny Carson. The appearance on the "Tonight Show" changed my life.
