Old preacher dude in 1980's

Postby AGhead » Fri Feb 07, 2020

I would stay up late in early to mid '80's watching this preacher dude smoking a cigar and asking for donations to keep a sign or maybe a cross lit on their building. it was a big city. I was hooked listening, never sent money. He's gotta be dead now. How can I find who he was so maybe I can utube to watch again? Any help appreciated, Longshot I know

Yep... Gene Scott.

There may be some sentimental reason you want to reconnect with his sermons, but I wouldn't consider his theology sound. Hit me back channel if you need to. Be happy to discuss/advise, etc,.

Thx Mr. Dave. Not really for his sermons but I recall his no Bull attitude and roughness is what interested me, rather than my pastor and other evangelists approach at that time in my teens seemed more real, or rebelliousness? I think thats it , he seemed to be a rebel but at same time a Christian too?

Thanks guys for help, been searching on and off for over a month.

I have another lost show. Same time period, 1980's, a guy on late night AM radio knew everything. I'd lay in bed listing to him. Not preacher, just call in questions and stuff.

and it wasn't Larry King, I think he just started radio too, maybe TV. This guy talked about legal stuff or financial? It seemed like the 'BBB Network' or like that?

I am slowly remembering more, he would play "lum and Abner' on his show sometimes for a few minutes, I think.

I haven't found the videos where he sat in the chair smoking like in the pics above, but I found some on utube. One guy comments that him and buddies would get high and watch him and trip on him :lol:

His name was Bruce Williams, I found it. I was listening one night and my Aunt called in and I recognized her. lol
He sure held my attention, I was only a teenager.

This thread reminds me of a job I had working nights back in the late 80’s/early 90’s. We all listened to Art Bell’s Coast To Coast AM show. Weird stuff on there, mostly paranormal, conspiracy, etc.

TPTB at the time thought of Jesus as a "Rebel" too.
I believe our Heavenly Father uses all of his Tools in His Shed to reach out to every type of people.

Off track for a sec but you reminded me of something long ago. Speaking of AM radio back in the Day, Does anyone remember Beaker Street radio out of a Little Rock am station? KAAY, i think it was.
As a teen I would wait up in my bed until Midnight to listen :lol:

Had to look it up (there’s an extensive Wikipedia page on it) I grew up in the Midwest and remember hearing “Dr Dimento” in the early 70’s as a kid. Not sure if it was out of that station, could have been.

Clive Clifford! When it finally moved to FM it was on KMJX 105.1, He would come on every Sunday evening. I was experimenting with 'herbal' relaxation by the FM days and we gathered to hear the beakers bubblin' and the deep cuts he would play. We figured he was making psychedelics in his 'lab'. KAAY was far reaching.
