Those NBC Years

50. Those NBC Years

Gwen Terry

University of California Press

In this chapter, Clark describes his association with the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) and the time that he got off the Tonight Show. He began visiting Gerry and his band played with it on dates for commercials around town for months. Gerry's band was very different because they didn't play the ordinary run of arrangements. They played his original things. Clark played with them for four years whenever he could. Together, they did few concerts and shows for college students. This gave Clark the real thrill. With the NBC recordings; Clark's schedule was jam-packed. Clark's schedule included recordings, gigs, dinners, and parties. It was a whirlwind, but Clark loved what he was doing, and that's what kept him going.
