      • This show was supposed to be first of two 20th Anniversary shows, with part two airing June 9th. But after Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated on June 5, 1968, the theme of the 9Jun68 show was changed to a tribute to the late Senator. The guest list also changed. Originally, Pearl Bailey, Jackie Mason; Soupy Sales; Charlie Manna; Earl Wilson Jr. and the Kane Triplets were scheduled to appear 9Jun68. The Music Explosion have also been mentioned as scheduled guests.
