Moms Mabley was an x-rated comedienne on the Chitlin circuit of the '30s and '40s but by the '60s she had played Carnegie Hall. In the summer of 1969 she became the oldest person in history to have a hit song in the Top 40. Here she gives a very moving performance of that song, "Abraham, Martin & John." Merv Griffin had over 5000 guests appear on his show from 1963-1986.
