I see Dr. Gene Scott has passed away at age 75.
If you never caught Dr. Scott in action, then you certainly never found yourself awake at three in the morning, during the late seventies and early eighties.
I suppose that you could call him a televangelist. But he had a unique wackiness about him that was very entertaining - especially in the small hours of the morning. And he refused to take donations from viewers unless they had learned something from his teaching - teaching which included UFOs and the Great Pyramid, among other things.
Eccentric would be a nice way of describing him. Full of **** is probably another - and more accurate.
But late, late night programming has yet to offer up anything or anyone else quite like him!
So, bon voyage, Dr Gene!
Now, play "I Want To Know"!
