David Letterman also once read my letter on the mailbag (CBS version), I was in a music video for a french-canadian band and I appeared several times in some local village's weekly wrasslin' program, doing a bit of everything (reffing, managing, even wrestling. My wrestling career is now at a staggering 0 and 3).

I was interviewed by a local news reporter who would do human interest stories and the store I managed at the mall (The Pro Image) sold wrestling T-shirts and they did a piece on that.

A few years later after I moved to a different job, I became the play-by-play announcer for the Oklahoma based NWA Universal TV show entitled "NWA Intense TV". We were on a local channel here in Tulsa (WB 19) for 10 weeks.

Once when I was but small thing (1986/7 I think).

Meningitis was doing the rounds of sunny Ayrshire and parents were packing their kids off to far flung parts of the country to keep em safe.

The local news came round to speak to the kids that had stayed behind and I had to say something about how I thought people were over-reacting and school was important so you shouldn't miss it if you're not sick.

Got the piss ripped out me for weeks afterwards because of it, which I always thought was harsh given that the TV man told me what to say. That defence was futile in the court of playground opinion as it turned out.

Three times that I recall:

About 1972 or so, I was wearing a kids batting helmet, t-shirt and waving a Brewers' pennant while drinking a Coke. WTMJ used me as the background for their baseball scores that night.

When I was in high school, I was being interviewed while working the phone bank for a telethon (probably Jerry Lewis). As my phone rang, the guy next to me tried to pick it up because he was terrified of being interviewed on TV. They told me to pick it up, and talked to him.

In college, I was in the background for a CNN "Play of the Day". Brad Lohaus launched a three pointer as time expired to beat the Badgers. The shot and camera were right in line with where I was sitting, and you can see me get up and start walking down the aisle as I could tell the ball was going to go in.

When I was 12, I was the understudy of Charlie Brown in the play "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown" at my middle school. The understudies got to do one scene performance in front of elementary school kids and the county public school camera, so there's footage of me singing and dancing somewhere I've never seen. When I was 14, I was in Boy Scouts of America and a camera crew came to our troop to film us learning about something. The footage was to be used for scout training purposes and I had a 3 second closeup shot.

Other than that, all my media footage is radio. In 1996-7, I got on the air a few times via winning a variety of concert tickets. Last year, I called into a local morning show when I heard a college dormmate promoting his sold out comedy tour and bantered with him and the DJs briefly.

Back when I was eighteen, I was interviewed shortly after giving blood for the first time.

During my senior year, some friends and I skipped school and headed into St. Louis to goof around. There was a solar eclipse that day so we headed the Science Center to watch it. There was a news crew there that wanted to interview us. Two of my friends didn't go on camera to avoid getting in trouble, but I was on tv and so was the fourth friend there. In hindsight, the people that didn't get interviewed weren't really safe since if their parents saw either me or the other friend they'd have known all four of us were together.

I didn't see the interview (played at 5:00, 6:00, and 10:00) but a ton of people came up to me at school the next day saying they saw me. The whole thing was pretty strange because the reporter asked us how we had liked the eclipse, in the past tense. The thing was, the eclipse hadn't actually happened yet. So I was on tv saying, "Its alright, I guess."

As a kid, I was on community access TV for numerous school plays, up until Grade 8 or so, or whenever school play participation was no longer mandatory. The highlight was a featured role in my kindergarten class' performance of the Wedding of Jack and Jill. I was the Farmer in the Dell (and rang the ol' church bell).

I was interviewed for local news coverage when a local band (Wide Mouth Mason) started making it big - I was at an in-store show they did and a news crew was there. No idea if it made air.

This past winter, the Regina CTV news kept filming local interest items at the mall near my work, and always when I was walking by carrying lunch back to my office. I don't know if I was ever on camera, but I like to think that someone out there is obsessing over the news, going "Look! It's that guy again AND HE'S GOT ANOTHER PITA!"

Oh OH and I almost forgot my appearance as host of STV Kids News ("news from a kid's point of view!"). A local station (the same one that did the Wide Mouth Mason story - clearly, they were hurting for content) would bring in kids to film school news stories and it would air during weekend cartoons. They filmed it in one take and it was awful. Somewhere, a videotape of my performance still exists. Thank God it's a Betamax tape. This would have been in 1988 or so - we were slow to adopt this whole newfangled "VHS" thing.

Back when it was more popular, I was on an episode of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?". I just missed out on making it past the "fastest finger" round. I got to shake hands with Regis. And I got a free trip to NYC. It was a lot of fun.

When I was in college a bunch of guys from our dorm went to Chicago to watch a taping of Jerry Springer, back in the days before the fights and whatnot every episode. I was on t.v. a bunch of times when they cut to audience reactions.

I was in the crowd during a WWE Smackdown taping in Kelowna when Charlie Haas and Rico won the tag belts from Rikishi and Scotty 2 Hottie.

During Haas' entrance, I stuck my hand out to slap his, but he snubbed me. Clearly on TV. Whoo

7 years ago I think it was I was opposite of the hard camera side of the ring for Smackdown. The wonderful one where Bagwell overstepped his boundaries I think it was. You can see me sittin' there watching intently all night...There were some other dudes behind me acting like fools though...
