Work: The NBC Years (1949-1968)
Note: I anticipated having a
long list of television shows here of which Bobby R. was
drummer or the percussionist. He was a studio musician for NBC
that entire time. However, aside from The Tonight Show with
Johnny Carson, where Bobby was a player in the orchestra, I
have not been able to get a specific
list from NBC directly nor have I been able to obtain a list
other source to date. If anyone can supply me with a list of
and specials for these years that would include Bobby R.'s
participation, please contact the webmaster.
Work: The ABC Years (1969-1974)
