Albert Richard "Jazzbo" Collins (January 4, 1919 – September 30, 1997) was an American disc jockey, radio personality and recording artist who was briefly the host of NBC television's Tonight show in 1957.
Al "Jazzbo" Collins
Al "Jazzbeaux" Collins
Born Albert Richard Collins
January 4, 1919
Rochester, New York
Died September 30, 1997 (aged 78)
Marin County, California 
Born in Rochester, New York in 1919,[1] Collins grew up on Long Island, New York. In 1941, while attending the University of Miami in Florida, he substituted as the announcer on his English teacher's campus radio program, and decided he wanted to be in radio. Collins began his professional career as the disc jockey at a bluegrass station in Logan, West Virginia; by 1943, he was at WKPA in Pittsburgh, moving in 1945 to WIND in Chicago and in 1946 to Salt Lake City's KNAK. In 1950, he relocated to New York where he joined the staff of WNEW and became one of the "communicators" on NBC's Monitor when it began in 1955.
Collins made several appearances on The Tonight Show with Steve Allen in the early 50s (and even briefly took over the show after Allen's departure; see below). In 1953, Allen adapted several nursery rhymes (including Little Red Riding Hood) into jazz-flavoured recitations, with Collins on vocals and Lou Stein on piano.
"Jazzbo"[edit]
The name "Jazzbo" derived from a product Collins had seen, a clip-on bowtie named Jazzbows. Just as Martin Block created the illusion that he was speaking from the Make Believe Ballroom, Collins claimed to be broadcasting from his inner sanctum, a place known as the Purple Grotto, an imaginary setting suggested by radio station WNEW's interior design, as Collins explained:
I started my broadcast in Studio One which was painted all kinds of tints and shades of purple on huge polycylindricals which were vertically placed around the walls of the room to deflect the sound. It just happened to be that way. And with the turntables and desk and console and the lights turned down low, it had a very cavelike appearance to my imagination. So I got on the air, and the first thing I said was, "Hi, it's Jazzbo in the Purple Grotto." You never know where your thoughts are coming from, but the way it came out was that I was in a grotto, in this atmosphere with stalagtites and a lake and no telephones. I was using Nat Cole underneath me with "Easy Listening Blues" playing piano in the background.
The Tonight Show and later work[edit]
In 1957, NBC-TV installed him for five weeks as the host of the Tonight show when it was known as Tonight! America After Dark in the period between hosts Steve Allen and Jack Paar.[2]
Also in 1957, Collins starred in (as himself) an episode of NBC radio's science fiction radio series X Minus One. By 1959, he was with KSFO in San Francisco, hanging out with the beatnik hipsters in North Beach. On-air, Jazzbo would say that he was broadcasting "from the purpleness of the Grotto", often mentioning his assistant "Harrison, the long-tailed purple Tasmanian owl". On the TV side, Collins hosted "The Al Collins Show," that aired mornings on KGO-TV. The format included light talk and guest appearances by local celebrities such as Moe Howard of The Three Stooges. Later in the 1960s, he was the host of Jazz for the Asking (VOA), and he worked with several Los Angeles stations during the late in the decade: KMET (1966), KFI (1967) and KGBS (1968).
He officially changed the spelling of his name to Jazzbeaux when he went to Pittsburgh's WTAE in 1969. He moved to WIXZ in Pittsburgh (1973) before heading back to the West Coast three years later. While in Pittsburgh, he briefly hosted a late night television show entitled "Jazzbeauxz (with a 'z') Rehearsal", an eclectic sampling of anything that caught Collins' interest at the time, including a long-running hard-boiled-egg spinning contest. He conducted the program from a barber chair, as he had on a previous TV show.
"Stinking badges"[edit]
A popular segment on his show was the "no stinkin' badges" routine, a play on the famous exchange in the 1948 film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Al would politely request that the main guest for that day don a Mexican bandit costume, complete with ammo belts crossing the chest, six-guns in holsters, a huge sombrero and large fake mustache. The guest then had to pose in front of cameras and for the TV audience. With pistols pointing at the camera lens the guest had to say (with emphasis) "I don't got to show you no stinkin' badges." If the guest did not say it with sufficient sinister tone Collins made him or her repeat it until in Al's opinion the guest got it right.
1970s and beyond[edit]
In 1976 Al Collins returned to San Francisco, working at KMPX, followed by a three-year all-night run at KGO which drew callers throughout the West Coast; he always opened his program with Count Basie's "Blues in Hoss Flat". He also worked a late night shift at KKIS AM (in Pittsburg, California, ironically) in 1980. After a stint in New York and WNEW (1981), Jazzbo was back in San Francisco at KSFO (1983) and KFRC (1986). Then came one more run at WNEW (1986–90), then KAPX (Marin County, California) in 1990, and finally a weekly jazz show at KCSM (College of San Mateo, California) from 1993 to his death.
Al Collins died on September 30, 1997, at the age of 78, from pancreatic cancer.

A Fifty Year Old Story -- at this year's Radio Day festivities. Here is his report

 

A Fifty Year Old Story -- at this year's Radio Day festivities. Here is his report
California Historical Radio Society    . -- Jon Hammond is a long-time CHRS member who sees the country with his Jon Hammond Band. He's often played for CHRS on Radio Day by the Bay. He is active on Citizens Band (CB) when on the road (and collects CBs too) and also holds an FCC amateur radio license. At Radio Central, Jon found a Radio With A Story -- A Fifty Year Old Story -- at this year's Radio Day festivities. Here is his report . "I went to CHRS swap meet last Saturday; it was very well attended! So when I went around the back, I found a couple of orphaned radios. A JC Penney SSB CB radio 6247 was pretty clean. But he real interesting story is this portable Sanyo 3 band radio that somehow called out to me. I picked it up and saw that the previous owner had labeled it - Thomas D. Mulhern from Fresno. And then another label said he bought it in 1965 in Geneva, Switzerland at WHO Store. It turns out that Mr. Mulhern was a quite well known man who worked on Mosquito Abatement and was part of the World Health Organization, so he was in Geneva at the WHO headquarters and bought this radio there at the store. . "I messed with it a little bit, and then the radio started speaking again. It sounds fantastic! . "I [went] out for a night health walk with it actually. . "Here’s some pics and story from last week and the man and Sanyo Radio model 10G 831L - check it out - thanks, over and outzky, Jon." . -- Jon also passed on a bio for "Tommy" Mulhern, who managed the control of mosquitoes in California and around the world for many decades. He saved many lives in a truly distinguished career. It's nice to know he enjoyed listening to the radio too, and given this "Colorano" ten-transistor radio's bands, long wave in Europe. (The "L" in the model number probably means it receives the long-wave broadcast band).   . -- Radiomuseum.org has a page for a version without a long wave band: www (dot) radiomuseum (dot) org/r/sanyo_colorano_10_g_83110g83.html

Thanks very much always amazing California Historical Radio SocietyTeam! It always pays off to come to the CHRS Radio Swap Meets and Events - yes I am the proud new owner of this legacy Sanyo Electric Company3 band model 10G-831L FM/LongWave LW/MW (aka AM) portable radio! Thanks to estate of Thomas D. Mulhern the famous Mosquito Abatement innovator member of World Health Organization (WHO)- *Note: On my health walk the other day, a couple going to their car noticed the Sanyo portable sounding real good walking by them, the woman said: "Wow I haven't seen a radio like that for a long time!" I proudly told her, "Thank you - it belonged to Thomas "Tommy" Mulhern the famous Mosquito Abatement expert of WHO / World Health Organization!" - and now I'm thinking about labeling all my gear - there will come a time, and it adds even more enjoyment to know the back story about where the equipment comes from - Mr. Mulhern actually bought it in Geneva Switzerland in the year 1965 at the WHO Store in World Health Organization Headquarters - and it sounds fantastic today in 2018 I am happy to report folks! Support the good folks at California Historical Radio Society - come on down to 2152 Central Avenue Alameda Radio Central any Saturday, the best! - Sincerely, Jon Hammond

Mr. Mulhern was real smart to do it (not the greatest speller, but good enough!)

Full text of "Thomas D. Mulhern 1908-1993.":
" THOMAS D. MULHERN 
1908-1993 

Thomas D. Mulhern (about 1985) 

Thomas Desmond Mulhern died on Thurs- 
day, August 1 2, 1 993, in Morgan Hill, California. 
Tommy, as he was affectionately known by his 
friends and colleagues, was born in Brooklyn, 
New York on June 15, 1908. 

Tommy devoted his entire professional life to 
activities related to the abatement and control 
of mosquitoes. Beginning with his first summer 
job in 1 925, as a mosquito inspector for the Mon- 
mouth County New Jersey Mosquito Extermi- 
nation Commission, to 1949, Tommy contrib- 
uted professionally through the development and 
design of equipment and procedures used world- 
wide for the abatement and control of pest and 
vector mosquitoes. His full-time professional ac- 
tivity began in 1 928 when working with the New 
Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station, Depart- 
ment of Entomology, as a drainage engineer and 
administrative assistant. 

Among his many professional contributions 

was participation in the design and development 
of the New Jersey mosquito light trap and pro- 
cedures for utilizing traps for the survey and eval- 
uation of adult mosquito populations. He de- 
signed inverted-siphon, self-cleaning outlets for 
mosquito control ditches through sandy seashore 
beaches. He also designed a salt marsh ditching 
system to supplement the natural system, ad- 
mitting saltwater minnows that preyed upon 
mosquito larvae, and designed and developed 
more efficient marsh ditching machines for salt 
marsh and freshwater marsh areas. “
