Satchmo’s last Tv Appearance

I love how tiny Louis Armstrong looks next to barrel-chested Johnny Cash.  I heard a story that Louis was a big stoner and he was about ready to perform for Kennedy and was like “Man, I can’t be high in front of the president”.  But he could only played high, and suddenly realized he might bomb if he wasn’t in the right mindset.  So he told the Secret Service  his predicament and they took him up onto the roof of the White House to smoke a doob.  What a wonderful world.
