During the first space launch, Leon (middle, bottom row) was attending the Robert St. John School for Famous Broadcasters where students could go help cover this historic event. Leon chose to stay back at the school so he could get off earlier and “drink some ‘Ripple.”
Leon also thought he saw the Grateful Dead at the Dairy Queen, but maybe not.
