De Kooning Tom Cottte __ * Listeners pay close attention to late-night radio broadcast · ByTOMJORY Associated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- Larry King is hard at work, chatting with guests and callers from all corners, while most Americans are sound asleep. But despite the nocturnal nature of his audience. King in- 'sists'he's no "hand-holder." "The people who listen to our show are no different than anyone else. They're a microcosm of America," says King. "So I don't treat it as ah all-night show. If I were doing the thing at'noon, I'd do it the same way. ' 'Ten percent of America is up at night," says the host of Larry King Show" on the Mutual Radio Network, ' and only three percent of the people awake then are insomniacs. It's a lot younger audience than most* people think, and they're interested in the same things as everyone else. "The difference, I think, is in attention span. There are less distractions at night, and I get the feeling people pay more attention fo us at night than they might during the day," King says. Whoever they are, the listeners are there in legion -Mutual estimates about 3.5 million people tune in sometime during each broadcast. "We started with 28 stations less than three years ago!" King says, "and we're up to 250 today. "It's a huge audience, starved for information at that hour," he says, "and they're just waiting for someone to come to talk with them." ' Though no one will admit to a connection between King's -success and plans by at least two TV networks -- CBS and ABC -- to program news and information in the wee hours, the Mutual talk, show has proven there is a receptive audience between midnight and dawn. "The Larry King Show," broadcast live five nights a week, from just after midnight to 5:30 a.m. EST, is in three segments -- King's conversation with the night's guest, to 1 a.m., a call-in portion with King and the guest, until 3, and "Open Phone America," which invites conversation with King, to sign-off. Mutual offers participating stations a "Best of King" program for weekend broadcast. Some stations on the West Coast compensate for the three-hour time difference by broadcasting "Open Pnone America" live, followed, by the guest segment on tape. That gives their listeners the opportunity to participate in the call-in portion of the program. King, wno recently turned 48, was raised in Brooklyn -he calls himself "a kid of the streets." He says he never went to college. Mis career in radio began in May 1957, as a disc jockey in Miami. Within months, he was host of a mid-morning talk show, broadcast live from a Miami Beach restaurant. "I'm 24," King recalls, "and from the second day I did that show -- 'Boy, this is my niche.' The show caught on very quickly -- Boboy Darin comes in, Jimmy Hoffa, Ed Sullivan. Agents and PR people were bringing their clients by. It was all great training." King did the show at night for a time, in the mid-1960s, and in 1970, he says, "I went back to the studio and started taking calls." King also did color commentary on Miami Dolphins TO football games, through ie mid-'70s. "The Larry King Show" premiered on the Mutual system Jan. 30, 1978, and the E first nine weeks of the show was broadcast from Miami -- while King sought a home in Washington. The program has been fed by satellite from the nation's capital ever since. "There's kind of. a magic in calling Washington," King says. "You get a chance to talk to the people who run the show." King says he won't prepare for a guest -- read an author's oook, for instance-because he wants to ask the questions his listeners would ask. And he's particularly conscious of the burden on him to keep the program as lively as possible. Arnaz back on drums at the Orange Bowl MIAMI (AP) -- Desi Arnaz was the king of the Cuban beat again when he entered the Orange Bowl pounding on a conga drum and singing. "Cumba, Cumba, Cumba, Cum- banchero." Arnaz and his children, Lucie and Desi Jr., did a number at "Carnaval Miami" on Saturday night that took the audience of 30,000 back to the heyday of Havana's Tropicana Club. He was "Cuban Pete" teaching "Sally Sweet" to "chic-cniqui-boom." As Sally Sweet, Lucie Arnaz shimmied in, wearing a green-sequined dress her mother, Lucille Ball, wore on the television show "I Love Lucy." The stadium crowd spilled onto the football field in spurts of rhumba. Next, it was "Little Ricky's" turn. Desi Jr. and his father banged away in a duel of drums. The elder Arnaz served as king of "Carnaval Miami,", a weeklong festival which included an open house in Little Havana and wound up with a parade Sunday.
