Me too, Ken! I remember having to wait impatiently for him to go through all his other guests till Buddy would come on. I'd love their exchanges and you are right, I think they were very good friends and had a schtick going on all those episodes, like an Abbott & Costello.
Buddy had also given Johnny some lessons, I believe.
Yea, that was pre-utube euphoria!
I think the residual impression of Buddy in the public eye comes mostly from those shows and from the 'bus tapes' that have circulated 'wildly' amongst the musician communities.
Not a lot to go on IMPO.
