Co-hosts Ruth Dolgow and Bonnie D. Graham welcome magician extraordinaire Phil Piacentini, founder and owner of The Magic Shop on Long Island, NY since 1974.

In this episode, Phil performs an array of simple [for him!] tricks and illusions that grandparents can easily learn and perform for their families.

The Magic Shop, located at 940 South Broadway, Hicksville, NY 11801-5048, is offering free magic lessons. Call for information: (516) 822-5074.

One of Phil's many claims to fame is introducing globally popular illusionist Criss Angel "The Mindfreak" to magic at age 12 at The Magic Shop.

Thank you to our hard-working production crew: Ben Ratner [director/chyron/intro roll-in], Eric Newman [audio/tape], Colette Thaw [floor manager/camera] and Desi O'Kane [camera], plus Cablevision Sr. Tech Jason Hodge. Our crew's dedication is truly "magical"!
