The greatest promoter of all time. Incidentally, he never said, "There's a sucker born every minute." It was coined by a competitor who attributed it to him. I have an autographed photo of him in my office.

I took her to a high school dance in 1958.
THE SURVIVORS...That's the name of the group of over 100 Phoenix advertising and media execs who get together once a year to talk about "the good old days." Mostly folks like myself who were active in the 50's, 60's, 70's, and later. It's really a lot of fun. Pictured left from the 2002 group...L-R standing: Ed Bradford, Lloyd Melton, Me, Jack Clifford. Seated: Ira Lavin. Ed and I worked together selling time at KTAR-TV. He became a minister and is now in the executive office of the Assembly of God. Lloyd and I sold time at KRUX Radio and drank a lot of beer. He now owns restaurants. Jack was my boss at KTAR-TV and became a national media mogul in the cable industry. He's now retired. Ira, former General Manager of the Phoenix station that Dick Van Dyke owned, KXIV, I am sad to report passed away last year.
