On The Road, 1980

Posted on 10th July 2016 in "Times Square"

Robin and Trini, but mostly Robin, crossed the country and later traveled the world doing publicity for Times Square. They did The John Davidson Show together, and Robin was a guest on The Merv Griffin Show. I didn’t see the John Davidson appearance, but I managed to record Robin’s Merv Griffin interview on audio cassette. Unfortunately, that cassette is one of many things to have gone missing since 1980. I still have hope it’ll turn up someday, but not a lot of hope.

“Oh yeah! During a press junket in S.F. in 1980 at some nightclub. Was probably a bit ‘Lit’-up here!”
    — Robin Johnson, June 2014

 

 

 

 

 

Something that did turn up, though, is this photograph. The back has handwritten on it, “18” and “Robin Johnson”, and is stamped “Bill Cogan Photography.” Sadly, photographer Bill Cogan passed away in 2009.
