Roundtable.....

Sonny Barger at a San Francisco TV station, participating in a live roundtable discussion over the pending California helmet law in 1965. Seated LT. to RT. are Sonny, CA State Assemblymen John Foran and Joeseph Hope, and sportscaster Joe Dolan.

When's the last time you can remember anybody smoking on television?
Evidently, everybody, save for Barger, was going clamming after they were through in the studio.....

Tom Snyder - a late night talk show host back the 70s and 80s chain smoked during his interviews (loved that guy's show). Would love to see a modern TV talk show host smoke on set.

I loved Tom Snyder's "Tomorrow Show" - "Fire up a colortini, sit back, relax, and watch the pictures now, as they fly through the air....". Go over to YouTube, and watch his Charie Manson interview.

Yeah, I remember when everybody smoked on TV. While you're over at YouTube, just look at a couple of the old "Playboy After Dark" shows (check out the Sammy Davis one, especially), everybody and their dog is smoking away, not to mention belting down the booze.
