Ed and Rory McMahon

A listener Rory McMahon likes the Finnish letters jingle (which most people didn't like).  Ed McMahon, on the other hand, was once a guest on Match Game, and Dick had also met Johnny Carson, for 30 seconds.  Another regular Match Game guest, Ethel Merman, was very nervous before her first appearance on Match Game.
