IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN L.A., actually Burbank, a nearby enclave made famous by many a long time television shows. The city, often referred to by “The Johnny Carson Show” as beautiful downtown Burbank is quite the misnomer. It is pristine, very clean and home to all the major studios–billed as the “Media Capital of the World” and only a few miles northeast of Hollywood, numerous media and entertainment companies are headquartered or have significant production facilities in Burbank, including The Walt Disney Company, Warner Bros. Entertainment, Nickelodeon, NBC, Cartoon Network, and Insomniac Games.
The city is also home to Bob Hope Airport, as he lived there for years. The mission was to visit the headquarters of the world renowned IheartMedia studios. Glistening in a epicenter of media, we arrived to the compound and the energy was apparent. Newly renovated, we were toured around by none other than Tim Conway Jr. Raconteur, Radio show host, and son of Tim Conway, Carol Burnett’s sidekick. Tim Conway Sr. is known for his role as the inept Ensign Charles Parker in the 1960s World War II-set situation comedy McHale’s Navy, for his sketch comedy as a co-star on the 1970s variety program The Carol Burnett Show, for starring as the title character in the Dorf seriesof comedy films, and for cartoon voice work as the voice of Barnacle Boy from the animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. A charming host, Tim Conway Jr escorted us though the green rooms, studios and more where the likes of Ryan Seacrest and “Big Boy” roam on a daily basis. We grabbed lunch at the lovely restaurant that felt like the commissary where the radio greats take a minute to chill and recount their days.
