Steve Allen’s Meeting of Minds, along with Holocaust, were the Roots discovery’s TV favorites. He also was glad he caught Midnight Express and Billy Joel’s 52nd Street. He wouldn’t have missed Laverne and Shirley, Judy Krantz’s novel Scruples, the film A Wedding and any punk rock. Best reads: Tolkien and James Clavell’s Shogun.
