THIS DAY IN GAME SHOW HISTORY: 365 COMMEMORATIONS AND CELEBRATIONS, VOL. 3 (July through September) by Adam Nedeff (paperback)
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 had a set so elaborate that it used four miles of electric wires...the game show host who was so nervous on his first day that he went thirty minutes without blinking...the game show Lucille Ball loved so much that she always kept a copy of the home game in her dressing room...the true identity of “The Walking Man” on Truth or Consequences...which Seinfeld cast member was implicated in the 1950s quiz show scandals...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.
