Backstage With Rick: 12/16/10
Before Jay Leno took over as host of the “Tonight Show”, he was a traveling stand-up comedian and made a visit to Utica, NY.Our afternoon host had Jay in the studio and was beginning to interview him on the air. 5 minutes into the interview the DJ tells Jay that she forgot to turn on his microphone. Jay and the DJ chuckled a moment and started the interview over again. Another 3 to 5 minutes into the interview, the DJ realized that Jay’s microphone was STILL not on.
To make a long story short, Jay wrapped up the interview and as far as I know, never has returned to Utica, NY.
