Game shows have more stories to tell than they have washers and dryers to give away. This Day in Game Show History is a remarkable four-volume set chronicling the best stories—on camera and off—and the most noteworthy milestones for every day in the year.
In this volume, you'll find out which game show used 50 gallons of whipped cream and 144 balloons per taping...the film star who credited The Hollywood Squares with launching his career...how a radio quiz show caused an outbreak of mumps among the New York Yankees...which game show host invented the first artificial heart...why Bob Barker personally disliked having beautiful women appear as contestants on his shows...and lots, lots more!
About the Author
Adam Nedeff grew up in Vienna, West Virginia, and spent his childhood infinitely more interested in late night comedy & game shows than afternoon cartoons. He majored in radio & television at Marshall University and spent a few years toiling as a disc jockey before moving to Los Angeles to see if he could make a career out of his childhood obsessions. He has appeared as a contestant on three game shows, worked behind-the-scenes for Wheel of Fortune and The Price is Right, and even started a small business with his friends, recreating and producing live game shows for private parties and corporate functions. With encouragement from late night star Conan O'Brien, he finally began writing books about game show history, starting with Quizmaster, a comprehensive biography of beloved game show host Bill Cullen.
