Bingo Contest

by H. W. Moss

My novel “Talk Show Host” is based on true events that are only slightly exaggerated. On Friday nights at six we had this church style bingo contest on Cable Channel 8 in Pacifica, CA.

The show aired for perhaps six months with me on screen.

When this was first suggested by Grady Hesters and Maggie Ramirez, I said, “No. Not me. Nope. I don’t do tee vee. I don’t.”

This scene was recorded May 18, 1973, and is faithfully reproduced in the novel.
