This is my dad, the late WT "Bill" Rabe, and me forty years ago. My dad was a friend of the late lamented satirist Art Buchwald. The link takes you to an old Buchwald column about Silent Records, one of his many schemes.

An old-time PR man, Dad also invented Unicorn Hunting, World Sauntering Day, Stone Skipping, and Word Banishment. Angelenos might remember Dad's frequent appearances on Charlie Tuna's morning shows on KIIS-AM and FM, 10Q, KHTZ-FM, and KRLA.
