    Excellent interviews with my Dad, Ron Bacon. I remember him telling these stories verbatim. And, as his daughter, I can say, yes…he worked 100 hour weeks many times. He would come home, sleep for three hours, and go back to work. Incredible man, who, although he worked long hours away, he was always here for his family. Thank you for such great interviews, Mr. Robertson. And, dancing with Lawrence Welk was a highlight of my life. Lawrence was a kind and generous man. I danced with him on my 10th birthday, while my brother, Britt, conducted the orchestra. (And, I know the secret about how they made the champagne bubbles in the background. 😉)

    Great interviews! What an amazing career, during an amazing time in our industry where all Mad Men had an outlet; artists like Ron kept the mad vision real! I’m greatly honored to know him and his family.
