Time Capsule Tuesday: When fans converged upon Tower Records for Joan Rivers album signing
This popped up on my YouTube suggestions randomly and it really was a delicious time capsule from 1983. I was a closeted teenager and such a big Joan Rivers fan that I would tape her Tonight Show appearances with my cassette tape recorder. My laughter could be heard on tapes. This gem of a video was shot for The Norman News at Beverly Hills High by student journalist Jon Cherney. He interviews fans before and after they get their album signed and a few of them even attempt Joan Rivers imitations. In Cherney’s brief interview with the star, she gives a personal shout out to the kids at Beverly High.
Enjoy this trip in a time machine!
