Radio Personality
    (September 8, 1938-July 18, 2018)
    Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
    US Air Force sergeant and deejay for American Forces Vietnam Network (1965-66)
    Portrayed by Robin Williams in ‘Good Morning Vietnam’ (1987)
    He tried to pitch a sitcom based on his experiences as a deejay in Vietnam, but the networks turned him down, claiming war and comedy don’t mix.
    By the time ‘Good Morning, Vietnam’ became a movie, very little of his original treatment remained (and he didn’t get a film credit).
    He noted that if he had acted in real life like Williams did in the film, he would still be doing time at Fort Leavenworth.
    He became an attorney, but was disbarred for deceptive and fraudulent foreclosure prevention programs (2014).
    While attending the University of Pittsburgh, he was one of the founders of its student-run radio station, WPTS-FM.
    He is a member of Mensa.
    He described his political views as not anti-war, but ‘anti-stupidity.’
    ’He provided Robin Williams with his breakout role after years of relative disappointments like ‘Popeye’ and ‘Club Paradise.’
