Mannlicher Carcano used Mr. Rogers records in many performances. I think a
couple made it to tape. I can check if anyone's interested. I was a big
fan, but never saw his show until I was 20. I got him to autograph one of
his 8-tracks when he got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Excuse me,
I have to go to ebay now.
