Notes from Jay Levine Interview

Here's a page from notes taken while interviewing Jay Levine. Jay was in the audience the first night Andy hosted the ABC show,"Fridays." His girlfriend was a Sound Engineer for the show and Jay had unfettered access during that infamous night of chaos. Jay's kindness in sharing his memories will always be appreciated and it helped to create one of The Andy Kaufman Home Page's first "scoops." Jay also gave us a VHS tape of the show (complete with commercials that now look hilarious in retrospect - Backwoods brand cigars, Yamaha motocycles, upcoming episodes of Fantasy Island, etc.) and we eventually gave the tape to an ambitious Kaufman tape collector. Over the years he's provided copies to numerous individuals and it has now been passed throughout the subculture of hard-core Kaufman fans.
