The Larry King Interview (Page 1 of 3)

"King of Hearts"
An Interview with Larry King

Gary Barg: I don’t think that you would remember, but this is actually the second interview we’ve done together.

Larry King: When was the last one?

GB: It was 40 years ago. It was on a houseboat across from the Fountainbleu hotel in Miami Beach, Florida. I was about 10 years old and going to Camp Ocala.  You were interviewing the owners of the camp and they wanted to bring a camper on. I remember your being so nice to me, and I very much appreciated that.

LK: That was 41 years ago because that was in 1965. I’ve been in the business 49 years now.

GB: I remember it vividly. It was a very good experience for me.

LK: I remember the name Camp Ocala.

GB: You do?

LK: Sure.

GB:  I was watching the Muscular Dystrophy telethon last fall. It was terrific for you and Jerry Lewis to talk about the Hurricane Katrina tragedy—that’s what it’s all about—everybody pitching in and raising money.  I know the Larry King Cardiac Foundation also donated.

LK: We gave 25 thousand dollars and the Cordis Corporation gave 25 thousand dollars worth of stents. We’ve earmarked them for people who have been displaced, and who have no money to treat their heart problems.  So, we’re trying to play an active part, too.

GB: Could you tell me about the Larry King Cardiac Foundation?
