"No one is forever. I'd like to think I've made a mark on magic. This tape will be a memento of my contribution to the art."
- J.B. Bobo
And his contribution spanned the generations. In the '80s kids paid $1 to see the Bobo Magic Show. Many times the parents of those children remembered paying 50¢ to see this pioneer school-show performer. This remarkable legacy of being a pioneer school-show performer-which escapes all other magicians, becomes believable when Bobo reveals he's performed over 13,000 shows-and the numbers keep growing. And the number kept growing. J.B. Bobo and Lillian remained busy trekking across Texas performing 300 shows a year for many years. Bobo's rich history of 50 years in magic included performing stage, close-up, building apparatus and penning Watch This One and the coin-workers' Bible, Modern Coin Magic.
