RADIO AND AUDIO
I only achieved my childhood dream of being a disk jockey for two months in the summer of 1968, on KVAN, Vancouver (I have no "Paul St. John" airchecks). But I did a lot of radio in high school and college and a lot of audio on the Internet, so I assembled an hour-long montage called:
In the summer of 1972, I worked as a technician at WBZ-TV in Boston. They held a lottery for a chance to appear on TV—and they forgot to exclude employees from the lottery. I won. So, one day, just after I’d set the lights for Community Audition, I got what I thought might be my only chance ever to appear on commercial television (hah!). It seems amazing that I thought I was fat at the time, and that I had so much hair—OK, I did have so much hair. White tie and red shirt? What was I thinking?
Note: the video starts with 10 seconds of color bars and black, so you can adjust your Chroma. :-)
Until some copyright bot catches up with me, you can see my five game show appearances on the internet here and here. I’m not going to mention the names of the shows in the same paragraph as the video links; you can find their names at http://schindler.org/#GS.
And of course, there is my radio gameshow appearance. Carl Kassel did my answering machine messages because on May 11, 2000, I won the Listener Limerick Challenge on Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, the NPR News Quiz.
PROMOTING ASPIRIN THERAPY
I made four TV appearances to promote my book, Aspirin Therapy: Reducing Your Risk of Heart Disease. I never hit the big time, i.e., The Today Show or Good Morning America, but I got national exposure (Susskind) and did Portland, Seattle and San Francisco.
