Cheers to “Here’s Lucy” (Part 2)

Michael Stern, known throughout the industry as “Lucy’s Number 1 Fan,” was one of Ball’s dearest friends, and remains close to Lucie and Desi, Jr. In his best-selling book, I Had A Ball, Stern recounts meeting the famous redhead on July 12, 1973, which he calls his “12 ½ birthday.” That’s the day he attended a filming of the episode, “Lucy, The Peacemaker” (airdate 9–24–73) with Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme.
