In this 30-minute episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Boggs talks about long, successful media career; his interview with Frank Sinatra (the longest interview Sinatra ever gave); his long association with Las Vegas; why he decided to write a “politically incorrect” novel; and why he thinks laughter is the best medicine.
