Magician Lance Burton retired five years ago, after an astounding 15,000 performances, but he’s still a busy man. Last Thursday, WBAI radio broadcast my interview with him. Due to time constraints, they played an edited version of the interview, but the audience of this blog is more magic-oriented, so I thought you might like to hear the uncut version.
In the interview Lance talks about Johnny Carson, growing up with magician Mac King, life in Las Vegas, working with doves, and what he considers the most important thing he knows about magic. Click on the grey triangle to catch up with magician Lance Burton.
Great interview – perceptive questions, charming articulate answers, a pleasure to listen to.
Hey, thanks, Steve, I appreciate the kind words.
Really enjoyed the interview. It was nice of Lance Burton to give Johnny Carson the respect he deserved.
Thanks, Eddie. I learned a lot about Carson from Lance that I never knew before.
