Guest Book Highlights

January 29, 2015 "Joe Franklin was a show business giant and a wonderful friend and colleague. As a young journalist, I was privileged to have been a guest on his remarkable TV talk show -- a true talk show -- about 30 times. Years later, I was president of the public company named for him. It's difficult to believe he's no longer with us, answering his phone, chatting about show business greats or the events of the day, preparing his radio segment. He was one of those rare individuals who seemed immune to age and illness. A great person, great American, great New Yorker! May his memory be a blessing." - Jonathan Braun (NY, NY)
January 29, 2015 "THANKS JOE, REST IN PEACE"
