Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Monty Hall and Fishbait Miller

Here’s another two-fer podcast featuring a game show host and a legend on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.

Monty Hall’s first job was working for CKRC Radio in Winnipeg, Canada. He moved to New York City in 1955 and hosted several TV game shows there. After moving to California, he became host of the hilarious half-hour gameshow, “Let’s Make a Deal.” In this exchange he’ll reveal some fun facts about TV series.      

As a child William Miller was nicknamed “Fishbait” for his small stature. He weighed 75 pounds at the age of 15. Miller began working at the United States House of Representatives as a clerk and later became doorkeeper for the House. He was known for having an outgoing personality and loved the spotlight when he announced the President of the United States before the State of the Union speech. He once told Bella Abzug to remove her hat before entering the chamber.  She told Miller: “Go  (blank) yourself.” In this short podcast he’ll tell of another embarrassing moment in the House.
