Dr. Gene Scott
Before the onscreen tv guide, I would channel surf every available station and stop at almost anything musical. One day, I happened upon a rockin blues band, complete with sax and a Hammond B3. They weren't the greatest but they were authentic characters right out of New Orleans. At the end of the song, the camera moves to this bearded, cigar chomping televangelist, standing in front of a black board with circles and arrows around Satan and bible quotes. This guy was unbelievable. Dr. Gene Scott died yesterday at age 75. Hear about him on NPR here.
