Farrell Meisel came to visit today. He’s the International Man of Mystery, an ex-pat living in Baku, Azerbaijan. He’s on leave for a few weeks and home in the Palm Springs area.
Farrell played a pivotal role in my TV career. He cast me as the male co-host for PM Magazine/Buffalo. It was my first full time TV job.
I know Farrell about 10 minutes longer than I know Helaine! After I met Farrell on the phone and accepted his offer of a job I rushed from the WIFI radio studio, rounded a hallway and knocked down a new girl in promotions — Helaine! We met as I was giving notice.
It was important to me that Farrell approved my studio in-person. And he did. He even took a spin in the chroma key.
