FLASHBACK: Game Show King, Chuck Barris on The Preston & Steve Show Download

Download March 22nd, 2017

Sad to report that game show mogul and Bala Cynwyd native, Chuck Barris passed away yesterday at age 87.

His off the wall comedy molded our young lives.

The “Gong Show” host visited our studio in 2007 after releasing the novel, “The Big Question” about a murderous, future game show.

We could have listened to his stories for hours. The infamous Popsicle Twins fiasco, Gene, Gene The Dancing Machine and more. Chuck talked about where reality TV and game shows were heading and how his ideas would (or wouldn’t) translate into 21st Century.  Even the boss, Bill Weston, dropped by to pitch a show to his daytime TV idol.

Take a listen to this really fun interview:
