Thanks, Dandelion.
At his talks, Mr. Bradbury often recounted his experience of being scheduled as a guest on , I believe it was, the "Tonight Show" the night of the moon landing. Does anyone know of a printed version of this anecdote?

Well, it was not the 'Tonight Show', but the 'David Frost Show. You can read about this on the following link. Scroll down a bit to get to the part of Ray's Frost Adventure:

Nard,
Thanks so much for that.
I seem to remember him mentioning someone like "...that great astrophysicist Charo..."
rather than Sammy Davis Jr, but it's a great anecdote. To think; as long as man has been on earth, he's looked at, wondered, mythologized, even written songs about the moon. Then, at last, after uncountable generations, to actually TOUCH it...

Ha, I thought of David Frost on the anniversary day, as well as the oft-repeated remark, "They can put a man on the moon, but they can't--" Too bad Dennis Miller was too young to be hosting a show then. He'd have appreciated the opportunity he had there.
