He has written his autobiography entitled
The interview aired live on Wednesday, May 24, 1995 at 9pm eastern with Peter Anthony Holder
the evening open-line talk show host on
CJAD 800 AM, Montreal.

CJAD: How are you sir?

JAMIE: Well I'm a little tired. I've been up since 4 o'clock this morning doing CNN television at 6:40 to go back east to make it 9:40. You know, what's nice about Montreal? Not only is it a beautiful city, but you have Cuban cigars, which I envy you for (laughter).

CJAD: Now, you've come out with this book, JAMIE FARR: JUST FARR FUN....

JAMIE: And you want your money back!

CJAD: No, no, no!

JAMIE: You got it for nothing! Whattya want, Peter! (laughter)

CJAD: A lot of years have gone by since M*A*S*H was on the air and none of your cast members have put their memoirs down to paper yet. Why do you think that is? Why are you the first?

JAMIE: Because they're illiterate! (laughter).....I did it because I got tired of reading a bunch of books that everybody was either coming out of the closet or they were abused or they had some kind of substance problem. There was some kind of thing that was going on. You know, I'm tired of these books. I'd like to write a book where you had a lot of fun in the business for 42 years and share your stories. That's really the reason why I came out with it.

CJAD: You know, all the years watching you on M*A*S*H, seeing you interviewed on various television shows over the years, you seemed to be the happiest man in the world.

JAMIE: Well, I don't know, I never met the second happiest man, or the first happiest man, so I can't judge where I fall into that category. But, there was a line, I think it comes from AUNTIE MAME, or it could have come from Rosalind Russell herself. "Life is a banquet and some poor suckers are starving to death." That really basically it. I think it's great. You get up every day and ah....I remember, there's this Lebanese lady that I dearly loved who raised 13 children back in Toledo and she retired in Phoenix, Arizona. My wife and I used to visit her quite often. She said, "you know, I get up every morning and say 'thank you, God.' I do the same thing now. There are so many people in my life that are passing away and you realize, "oh my goodness. I haven't spent time with them. I haven't shared some moments." Because we meet so many people in our lives. I don't know, how old are you Peter?

CJAD: 36.

JAMIE: Okay, well you're fairly young. I'm going to be 61 this July. What happens is, you accumulate a great deal of acquaintances and friendships over the years and you just can't always spend as much time as you would like, not only with your friends and acquaintances, but with your relative. It's very difficult. Sometimes you get a call and, gee, an uncle passed away that you really liked, or a cousin or somebody else. So each day becomes a little more precious then the day that preceded it.

CJAD: You also have never seemed, unlike a lot of people you read about and hear about in the Hollywood never forget your roots. You're probably the greatest ambassador Toledo, Ohio has ever had.

JAMIE: I think that's very important that you don' really makes you a better actor, it makes you a better person to know where you came from, because where ever you go there is somebody in some town, city, hamlet, whatever, that has the same dreams that you have. You have to remember that. That's where you came from. Those were the people that either harmed you or inspired you, but at least you're a product of whatever that environment might be, positive or negative. With me it was a very positive attitude. I go back there and all my friends are there when I have my golf tournament which is the 4th of July week. They treat me the same way they did when I was growing up and I love it, because they don't have any airs about them and I certainly don't have any airs about myself.

CJAD: Those years you were on M*A*S* weren't there from the very beginning were you?

JAMIE: Oh, most certainly. I came in, I think, the seventh show of the first season and I think I did about six or seven shows that first season.

CJAD: All those years on M*A*S*H, that was quite a group of actors and technicians and crafts people behind the scenes. As I was mentioning to somebody before, the show ran three times the length of the actual Korean War. Did you anticipate when you first got on the air with that show, the type of following it would have? Especially considering it's a dark subject to do a show about, a comedy at that.

JAMIE: Well that would have prevented it from getting on the air, had you been a network executive, (laughter), because that's the first thing they said. "How could you make fun of a bunch of people up at the front? People getting wounded and killed?" That's what made it very special, because you had these people trapped in situations where they couldn't get out of. And of course they had to provide entertainment for themselves so they wouldn't go crazy. I don't think you're going to have another show like it on the air. There isn't a show, certainly, like it on the air. You have good shows. You have SEINFELD, and you have FRASIER and a couple of other comedies that I enjoy watching but it doesn't have the same sub-text that M*A*S*H had. And incidently, let me tell you something. I think your Canadian talent is exceptional. You continually show us up here in the States with your brilliancy. You have writers that come up with a play like TOMORROW, which is a wonderful, wonderful play and a wonder concept. You send us great hockey players. You also send us wonderful performers from the beginning with Mary Pickford and I think even Louis B. Mayer was Canadian. Went to Nova Scotia, or something, before he came to California to start Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. You've given us John Candy and Martin Short and Bill Shatner and lord knows how many other wonderful, wonderful performers. You have, I think, the entire behind the scenes of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE are all Canadian. You should be very proud of the product that you turn out and of course the influence that you've made here down south of you.

CJAD: We have some people who want to talk to you on the lines. We're talking with actor Jamie Farr. His book is called JUST FARR FUN......

JAMIE: Have you read it, or am I putting you on the spot by asking you that?

CJAD: Well you know, I have a rule. The Larry King rule. Never read a book before I have the person on the air.

JAMIE: Oh, all right. That's a good...(laughter)'re as smooth as he is.

CJAD: We go to the lines. We go to Walter in DDO. Hi Walter.

CALLER: Good evening, good evening Mr. Farr.

JAMIE: Yes good evening to you Walter.

CALLER: I have a few quick questions, if I may. One regarding a particular episode of M*A*S*H where your character was in that rubber suit. I think the idea was to prove you were crazy enough by sweating in it. Were you actually in such a suit?

JAMIE: Oh, indeed I was. You know one of the terrible things about doing movies is that the writers never consider the temperature outside. That particular episode was done in the summertime with the rubber. I indeed did lose weight and complained about me, as the actor, complained about it. However, there were some times when we did the winter scenes in the summer and I had to wear that silly fur coat that I had on. Oh, my lord! I was perspiring out there and of course they'd have to keep sending somebody out there before the scene was shot dabbing me with tissues and towels and everything else. Then usually you'd do the summer scenes in the winter. So you're out there with a tee-shirt and you hope nobody sees your air. You know, that you're breathing out. I think the trick was we used to put ice cubes in our mouth to stop that from happening.

CALLER: Well at least you weren't shooting in Vancouver in the winter.

JAMIE: Well Vancouver is a beautiful area, I don't care what time of the year you're there. Vancouver and Calgary. Around Banff and Lake Louise and of course the great golf course, Cananaskis. Great places in Canada.

CALLER: If, I may ask. Now I know that you are multi-talented and when you're not in television I'm sure you're performing on stage live. Are you a singer as well?

JAMIE: No I really am not, although I did my first Broadway show this past year. I replaced Nathan Lane in GUYS AND DOLLS on Broadway, playing Nathan Detroit, and I had to sing a couple of songs. And people said, "gee I didn't know you sang" and I said, "well no I don't" and to prove it I did eight shows a week (laughter).

CALLER: Oh wonderful. Talking about multi-talented, did you write your book, or did you have a ghost writer do it for you.

JAMIE: No, I wrote the book, but I did have somebody help me with it, because what happened was I got GUYS AND DOLLS at the time when we were starting the book. If you do eight shows a week it's just too difficult to try to put everything that you can together, but I assure you I was on that every page, every sentence, every word, ever piece of punctuation. And even with that there are typographical errors in the book.

CALLER: You played Max Klinger for a number of years, and I just wondered about the problem of typecasting.

JAMIE: Yeah, yeah, I know what the question is. I correct people when they say, "hey how's Radar doing?" I say, "his name is Gary Burghoff." I protect them, but it's just dreadful. That's the double edged sword. It makes you famous. You get some money from it. You go on and do the best you can, but it really is dreadful that people don't know your name. Children and even adults, when they like certain athletes, they can tell you about their batting average, about where they came from. They can tell you everything about that person. When they watch a television show, you become that character and that's all it is. They claim that some of the people that are on soap operas, if you play the villain or the villainess on there, they see you walking down the street, they'll hit you with a handbag or something, because they don't like you and that who they thing you are.

CALLER: That's the sign of doing the job well though, I guess.

JAMIE: Well it is, but then remember something else. When the show is over we still have to pay our rent, we have to buy food. We have to do all the same things that you do, so it makes it a little more difficult.

CALLER: Has it made things really difficult for you or have you gotten past that?

JAMIE: Well, that's why I do Broadway. That's exactly why I do Broadway, because I refuse to succumb to the stereotypical things that Hollywood does to a performer by saying, "we don't dare hire him because they're going to think of him only as Gilligan or only as......Have you ever noticed something. Let me show you a little trick they do in television. Remember Mary Tyler Moore did THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW, but her name in the show was not Mary Tyler Moore, it was Mary Richards. So that's what they do, because they don't want people out there not to know who they are. Even in some of the movies that John Wayne did, you notice his name was always John in a movie. So that's the trick. If you get a show named after you, and then play another character that's fine. But if you do a show that's an ensemble show like GILLIGAN'S ISLAND or M*A*S*H or something like that, then you're in trouble.

CALLER: Are you going to get a show named after you?

JAMIE: Well, I don't think so. I don't think anybody is wanting to put me back on the air. But I'm certainly out there trying.

CJAD: Okay Walter, thank you for the call.......We were talking about the popularity of the show M*A*S*H. At what point...because there's two levels of popularity really. I mean, you had world leaders who were fans of your show. I understand the Queen was a fan of your show...

JAMIE: ....the Dalai Lama, Presidents of the United States. Everybody was, but it was a great show. You had to like it whether you agreed with it or if you didn't agree with it. Whether you were right or left. It didn't matter whether you were a blue collar worker or the richest person in the world. There was something for everybody in the show. It was a well done show and you have to respect that.

CJAD: As a member of the cast and crew of that show, when was it you realized, first of all you were on a hit, and then second, you were on a show that had a world-wide following?

JAMIE: I think probably the third year was when I realized that I was a hit. When you go out to the market to shop. The same market you've been shopping in for any number of years and no one pays any attention to you. Then the fact that we were international, I think happened when I would be getting fan mail from around the world. And also when I did a LOVE BOAT. It would go to so many different countries, and I would travel there and I would get this incredible response from everybody. So that's when you realize that hey, this is not just a little studio we go to, Stage 9 at Twentieth Century Fox and make these television episodes. This thing is reaching everybody in the world! Suddenly you realize the power of television.

CJAD: Hello Susan, you're on the air with Jamie Farr.


JAMIE: Hi Susan!

CALLER: How are you?

JAMIE: Oh, I'm just fine. A little tired, but it's a little later for you. I've been up since 4 o'clock this morning.

CALLER: I hope you've had your supper.

JAMIE: No I haven't had that yet. My wife is slightly incapacitated due to an operation, so my daughter and I have been kind of taking care of the house, doing the laundry and all the other things, so I'm going to fix myself a bit of supper and also my wife's.

CALLER: If I'm not mistaken, you're Arabic, right?

JAMIE: Yes, Lebanese.....(at this point both Jamie and Susan exchange pleasantries in Arabic)......Now, how long have you been in Montreal?

CALLER: My parents have been here 23 years. I was born here.

JAMIE: Oh, good. I have a cousin of mine. A first cousin that was born in Beirut. He was a very fine attorney there and when the war broke out he wanted to save his family and he moved to the Ottawa area. He lives there. His name is Farrah Aboud.

CALLER: Oh, my uncle might know him, I don't know.

JAMIE: Yes, he's a nice, nice man. I have an Iraqi friend of mine who lives in your area. He and his wife are lovely people. They were down here in California for many years. He was an actor. As a matter of fact he was with me when my son was born.

CALLER: Jamie, if I'm not mistaken, didn't you also appear on a few game shows also.

CJAD: You were on THE GONG SHOW, weren't you.

JAMIE: Right, I helped set THE GONG SHOW, but if you buy my book, all of that is documented in there. Yeah, I've done so many game shows and I've helped create game shows even.

CALLER: I'm not sure, but did I see you on the $100,000 PYRAMID?

JAMIE: Many times. Oh, yes, I've done that, but see, you're very young. You have to remember something. I've been in this business 42 years. Those are reruns you're probably seeing on USA CABLE.

CALLER: But M*A*S*H was done in the early 70s, right?

JAMIE: Started in about 71 or 72, so...

CALLER: I remember them. My father is a huge fan of yours. My family, even my grandmother who lives in Syria saw M*A*S*H.

JAMIE: Oh, yeah, I get letters. You cannot believe the letters that I get from all over the world. From Russia, from Denmark, from Sweden, from Norway, from Germany, from England, from Lebanon, from Morocco, from Syria. It's just phenomenal. Portugal.

CALLER: When she comes here and we watch the M*A*S*H reruns she looks at your character and she says to me, "you know, this man is Lebanese." I told her, "yes I know", and she was very happy and proud that an Arabic person has made it famous in the States.

JAMIE: Well you have Paul Anka from Canada. He's one of our people. Yeah, I know it's great when you can identify with somebody. It makes you very proud and you also feel a relationship with that person and I have always tried to maintain that. I have never denied my nationality, although in the business it is predominately controlled by Jewish people, and as I write in the book, they have been the most wonderful people in the world to me. They have given me all the breaks that you can possibly have. But of course, it's wonderful when you feel that your own nationality has made it. It gives you kind of hopes.

CJAD: Thank you for the call Susan........Jamie we touched a little bit on the stereotyping of your character, of you as Klinger. Let's go back earlier to when you first started your career. You brought up your ethnic background. Was there any problem with stereotyping when you first started because of your ethnic background?

JAMIE: Well of course, I'm certainly not going to play a Norwegian, or Swede, based on my features, but no, because when I got into the business, you could play Italians, Greeks, Jews, Arabs, Spaniards, whatever. Today because of the political correctness, unless you are whatever that nationality happens to be, then you gotta be that. But at that time everybody was an actor. Even in the days when they did OTHELLO, you didn't necessarily have to be Black to play Othello. You wore the makeup and there were some great performances. But we're all so politically correct today that people can't play other parts and can't do things. You've got to be whatever it is you're supposed to be. Sometimes I think that doesn't offer the challenge as an actor to portray something.

CJAD: Let's go back to the lines. Spiro, hi, you're on the air.

JAMIE: Spiro! This has to be a Greek?

CALLER: You got it. (Greek banter between Jamie and caller, plus laughter). Jamie, I'm a fan of old movies. I managed to see you in one of them from the 40s. The movie escapes me right now, but what struck me was the fact that your name was Farah.

JAMIE: Jameel Farah. Yes, I write about that in my book. It wasn't a movie from the 40s. I was born in 1934 and I didn't make my first movie until 1954, for about 20 years later.

CALLER: It must have been one of your first ones.


CALLER: What prompted the name change from Farah to Farr.

JAMIE: The thing is people couldn't pronounce my name. This was prior to Farrah Fawcett. I always used to say we had the same first name but different plumbing. (laughter). People couldn't pronounce the name. They were very waspish. Italian didn't have names like Sylvester Stallone, Robert DeNiro, things like that, or Arnold Schwartzenegger. In those days when I was growing up you had very common simple names. Betty Davis, Ronald Reagan. Even an name like Humphrey Bogart. I mean, we know who the name is attached to. The face and the actor is great, but if you were to start out and you said, "my name is Humphrey" somebody would punch you out, because that's a stupid name to have. So I tried to make it a simple as possible for people so that they could pronounce your name.

CALLER: By the way, I also understand you were a hell of a singer when you were younger.

JAMIE: No I was not. I'm the worst singer in the world. Look, I'm the worst golfer in the world and the worst singer in the world and I love both of those. Maybe I should sing while I'm playing golf or golf while I'm singing.

CALLER: Bye now.

CJAD: Thank you for the of the other shows you had a chance to be on for a little bit was THE DANNY KAYE SHOW, correct.


CJAD: What was that like doing sketch comedy in front of a live audience? Different sketches, different characters?

JAMIE: Well I did sketch comedy for years and I've always enjoyed it. Actually I think the best sketch comedy....sometimes I want to go into SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE and rewrite some of the sketches because they're really not that good. If you want good sketches, go pick up your Sid Caesar. The best of YOUR SHOW OF SHOWS. That's the greatest sketch comedy you'll ever see on television. They sometimes beat things into the ground. They don't know when to get out of a situation. They think it's going to be funny....the more you pound the nail into the ground the funnier it gets and that's not necessarily true. I don't know if you're a Sid Caesar fan or even saw their shows, but I assure you, pick it up at your video store and you'll sit there and laugh. You'll see what great sketch comedy is. Danny Kaye resembled that because we had all the writers from the Sid Caesar show on that.

CJAD: The cast on that included....let me see if I remember, Joyce......

JAMIE: Harvey Korman, Bernie Kopel, I'm trying to think of some of the others, but I got canned from that show.

CJAD: Joyce Van Patten was on that show too, correct?

JAMIE: I got canned because Paul Mazersky who was in BLACKBOARD JUNGLE as an actor, became a very famous writer and director as we know later on, was writing that show with Larry Tucker, another writer friend of his. And he was friends with Joyce Van Patten. So he gotta be careful of your friends. They can turn on you and what happened was they wanted to bring in a lady into the show, so they brought in Joyce Van Patten and they canned me.

CJAD: Oh dear, are you still talking to Joyce?

JAMIE: Oh sure, she's a very fine actress. I still talk to Paul Mazersky. That's the way it goes in the business. Hey, I'm still here. As I've often said, listen I'm still here. They've driven a stake through my heart, shot me with a silver bullet and I'm still around.

CJAD: Getting back to M*A*S*H, you played a character who spent his time trying to get a Section 8. Trying to get out of the military. Now you actually were in the military, correct?

JAMIE: Yes, I was in from 57 to 59.

CJAD: What was the reaction from the military to your character?

JAMIE: There wasn't anything, Peter. I mean, nobody wrote me a bad letter, no one wrote me a good letter. They enjoyed the show, they just liked the show. I never got any kind of mail regarding whatever I did on the show. You would think, "oh wow, some right winger would write me a letter saying, 'how dare you' and some left winger would write you a letter saying 'how dare you." But none of that happened.

CJAD: Let's go back to the phones. Hank, hi, you're on the air.

CALLER: Jamie, a few quick questions. I wanted to know did you have to audition for your character on M*A*S*H? Who auditioned you? And what was your reaction when you found the kind of character you were going to be portraying. You were trying to get a Section-8. Having to wear dresses, beautiful outfits, hats.

JAMIE: Okay, well first of all, I didn't audition for it, perse. Obviously, I had auditioned for it with the various parts I had played prior to that because I had worked with Gene Reynolds before. Gene Reynolds was the producer. So when the character came up, Gene said there is only one person in the world who can play this part. That's when he called on me. I didn't know what I was doing. I was called in and I was put into this trailer outside of Stage 9, that had a lady's outfit hanging up, which was a WAC outfit, a women's army outfit. I thought I was dressing with an actress. He said, "no, no, that's yours, put it on." Of course I did, and when I went out on the soundstage everybody was screaming and laughing because of those hairy bow legs and various other things going on when you try to talk in high heels. I played it the way the director had asked me to play it, which was kind of limp-wristed and rather effeminate. But I did what he told me to do because I wanted the job. I went home and the next day they were calling and they said, "look we saw the dailies, we can't have this character be portrayed this way. Come on in, we have to reshoot it. You tell how you think this character should be played." So I came back and I said, "I think I should just play it straight. Use my regular voice and I don't pay attention to the clothes I'm wearing, but everybody else does. Let's see how that works." And of course I came on to that one day with that concept and I stayed for eleven years.

CALLER: Two other quick questions. First of all what size dress were you wearing.

JAMIE: Ah, you put me to the test. Boy I'm not quite sure. I think it was a 17 or 18. I'm not sure. If you asked me that 13 years ago, I could have given you the answer right away.

CALLER: Were they made to measure or were they off the rack?

JAMIE: They were off the rack with the exception of the Statue of Liberty outfit and a couple of other outfits that they actually had to make for me because they were special, but basically they were off the rack.

CALLER: Just one serious question. The mood on the final episode, GOODBYE, FAREWELL AND AMEN. How was it?

JAMIE: Well in reality, that wasn't the final episode. That was next to the final episode. What had happened was we shot that first and of course that's when the ranch burned down. We had to go to another location. That location we went to, we filmed the supposedly final episode, which wasn't the final episode that went on the air, but it wasn't the final episode that we shot, GOODBYE, FAREWELL AND AMEN, is over at Lake Sherwood. If you watch golf at all, they have the GREG NORMAN SHOOTOUT. That's where we shot the final episode of M*A*S*H where Jack Nicklaus created that golf course. The final episode of M*A*S*H was the one that we did where we buried the time capsule. It was a half hour episode. All the other stuff was in the can. We filmed this last thing called THE TIME CAPSULE.....

CALLER: I think that's the one where Radar's teddybear was buried, wasn't it?

JAMIE: Yeah, the teddybear and all kinds of things we put into it. That was actually the final episode.

CALLER: And how was the mood on the set between the characters and the technicians.

JAMIE: Well first of all it was very sad and at the same time it was very tiring because you must understand, when you're doing that kind of a show and you're part of everybody's household, be it the United States, Canada or the rest of the world, you're leaving them. You're departing from them, and every newspaper, every magazine, every radio program, every television show in the world is after you. We were on the phone constantly. We were in front of cameras constantly. We were talking to reporters constantly. It was really wild. It wasn't it was until after we all said goodbye, and we all went home and suddenly realized, "hey come Monday morning, we have no place to go!" that it really all hit us.

CJAD: Do you keep it contact with your former co-stars?

JAMIE: Yeah, Friday we're going to be in Tuscon for a get together. When I was in New York for GUYS AND DOLLS, Alan and Arlene Alda we'd see quite often and Loretta Swit would come into town. Mike Farrell and Shelley Fabares...back here in California I talk to Harry Morgan and his wife on many an occasion...Bill Christopher....I see McLean Stevenson and Wayne Rogers at a lot of golf tournaments.

CJAD: Thank you Hank.....Chris in Westmount, hi.

CALLER: Jamie, I just turned on the radio, so I don't know what you've covered. I was just curious about the questionable sexuality of the character you portrayed. When you went parties and socialized outside of the show when it was in its heyday, if that ever entered into things?

JAMIE: No, that one time did it. Everybody knew that the character was straight and was trying to get out on a Section-8. Oh, maybe on occasion, somebody had a little too much to drink, they might do a joke. Some people that might not be in the business that was trying to be funny would make some kind of comment, but basically they all knew and they loved the character. I can't tell you how much fan mail I get even now, after all these years off the air. I sit here at my desk and I have to answer all this mail.

CALLER: Well you can turn on the TV any day and you're on the air still.

JAMIE: Yeah, I know that and I think that's frightening. You can go all across the United States and Canada and I agree with you....

CJAD: Not only that, they've just recently redid the master tapes so it's clear and crisp and clean and back on the air again

JAMIE: Yeah, I know. Well, when we were doing it, Larry Gelbart said, "well, you've been immortalized. This is for eternity." Children will be watching it, which is fine. I tell you, I have a good time watching NICK AT NIGHT with the old shows on there and the same thing with our show. I love to see I LOVE LUCY on the air although I've seen them many, many times. I think it's a security factor, it's like your blanket. I may not watch the show, but I want to know it's on the air. It makes me feel secure.

CALLER: One last question, do you still get residuals for all that stuff.

JAMIE: Yeah, it's not enormous amounts, but I still get them and I'm grateful for that. Thankful for it. But I didn't do it for that. I did it because I love the business.

CALLER: I still get a kick out of you every time I see it.

JAMIE: Well thank you. I appreciate that.

CJAD: Thank you for the call....what about the future? There's still a long road ahead of you, Jamie. Where can we see you.....

JAMIE: Well I would think so. I can't answer that question because I am not the captain of my ship. My ship is out there. I am the captain of my ship, but I don't have my course, (laughter), what I'm saying, you see, is I don't know yet at this point. You never know in this business after 42 years, the phone rings and there's another Broadway show or another TV series or a movie or a Movie Of The Week. We just don't know. That's the gamble you take. But fortunately I've been frugal with what I do and I don't have to worry about financially what my next job may be.

CJAD: Well you've done the hit television series and you've done Broadway. Is there something in your acting career that you haven't done that you'd like to?

JAMIE: I'd like to create a role on Broadway is what I would love to do, as opposed to replace somebody on Broadway or do a revival of something on Broadway. I'd love to create a character. That would really heighten my senses.

CJAD: Well it certainly was a pleasure talking to you this past hour.

JAMIE: Well thank you Peter.

CJAD: And the book is out. JAMIE FARR: JUST FARR FUN.

JAMIE: And you know what? It's a great Father's Day gift. I've been out on the book tour going through Pittsburgh, St Louis and Cleveland and Dayton and Orlando, Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina and I sign many a books for people for Father's Day. And it is. It's a terrific book. Please do what Larry King does. Read it after we talk and I think you'll agree with me, it's a lot of fun.

CJAD: I certainly will. The book is called JAMIE FARR: JUST FARR FUN. I thank you Jamie for being on the program.

JAMIE: Well thank you Peter.
