I did sound mix for Wayne Cochran performing Proud Mary on Johnny Carson Show.

with No Comments

Back in the 70’s I produced Wayne Cochran and the CC Riders for a couple of years. This video has comments that say the best tv performance anyone remembers was his performance of Proud Mary on Johnny Carson. I did the sound for that appearance. I was in LA and Wayne called me from the rehersal stage at NBC and asked me to get there quick. He had a 20 piece band and they put 2 mikes on the band and 1 vocal mike for him……all 635A Electro Voice that cost $50 each. I got there and had to deal with union guys and gals to get me 12 mikes and do some run throughts. Wish I could hear that moment again too…..but no one seems to find it!
