Ray Ives U. S. Coast Guard (The Korean War): In my 47 years in Broadcasting I received an Emmy and other Achievement awards from the ABC Network. Many funny things happen behind the Cameras and you will be shocked, they are all true. Find out what happened in the Control rooms when John Kennedy was shot, I will never forget that day. Find out what really happens on the major shows and the Conventions. My latest new book is, "True Stories of the U.S. Coast Guard", which tells what really happens to the men on the ships and Coast Guard bases. It is very funny except when we stopped 3 Russian ships trying to force their way into New York harbor. They would not stop and refused to let us board them. We were worried that Atomic bombs might be on the ships. We were armed and moved to board them as things began to get worse. The Coast Guard quickly requested the Navy for back up. The Navy then sent out orders to all Naval ships in the area to assist us and go to General Quarters, Battle Stations. "THIS IS NOT A DRILL". This story is the truth, not what you were told. I owe a lot to the U.S. Coast Guard. God bless them all.
TELEVISION PROGRAMS FROM THE LOCAL STATIONS TO THE MAJOR SHOWS ON THE NETWORKS HAVE FUNNY THINGS THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW.: One time when we were doing Buffalo Bandstand from Buffalo. The music from the studio that came into the Control Room was too loud. After many shows I made attemps to to fix it the problems. The T.D. lost the feeling in the left side of his face. It was paralized. He could only smile on one side. No one at home knew about it. We found him 2 years later tending bar in Florida. He said that he would never return to Broadcasting. The Hollywood Palace had some wild incidents happen. The show was to go live to the full net but the host, Red F. was in the rear of a LAPD Police car on Vine Street. Two fat ladies were pointing their fingers at him. The LAPD was going to take him away to book him. A number of stars are mentioned, like John Denver, Soupy Sales, Captain and T., Sonney and Cher, and many others. My 12 year old daughter was kicked off of American Bandstand, she was not supposed to be there. The director after two shows put the phone down and yelled , "Where the hell did this kid come from". I thought I was going to be fired. Many Network shows had problems you would never know about. The Theme in this book is "what goes on Behind the Cameras that you never see". The book is full of them. You will be amazed.
