stay on up

What was I thinking when I chose to wear that shirt to a taping of "The Price Is Right" in 1993? Maybe I thought it would be easily visible on camera. Or maybe it's just the shirt I happened to wear to my job at the hip-hop station that morning. I was the epitome of hip-hop fashion.

Dave Morales
was one of the deejays at Power 106 and is a huge fan of "The Price Is Right." One day after we got to talking about the game show, I contacted Bob Barker's publicist and arranged for a pair of VIP tickets to an upcoming taping. The VIP tickets meant we didn't have to wait in line but it also meant we were not eligible to be contestants. A CBS page gave us name tags and ushered us to the seats right behind contestants' row. There was no doubt that we would be seen. We actually had better seats than a real VIP who was there. Tina Yothers was a bit further down the row from us. Maybe they thought it would be a distraction for someone recognizable like her to be right behind the contestants. At that point she still looked more like Jennifer Keaton than like the lead singer of Jaded.

Anyway, congratulations to Bob Barker, who finished his run on "The Price Is Right" and won a Daytime Emmy tonight.

Bob Baker mentioned that David Letterman asked him to be his partner on The Amazing Race and that he would probably do it. Did you hear that also?
