Co-founder of Are We Alone? the radio show of the SETI Institute, the world's largest scientific search for evidence of life in the universe. Lousy surfer. Met Steve Allen and Johnny Carson, both of whom couldn't have cared less, although they were both gracious. Seth Shostak knows his name. Interviewed the REAL King of Rock 'n Roll, Little Richard (not that truck driver from Tupelo.) Played yo-yo with Tommy and Dick Smothers. Miss Carl Sagan. The Barefoot Billy Aloha motto: "They're gonna nail us no matter what we do; so, we might as well have a good time." - a quote from Brother Otter, in that American classic, Animal House - a painful reminder of Barefoot's college fraternity daze at UCLA. Favorite book, The Demon-Haunted World. Admirer of that great existential philosopher, Carl Spackler, "...so, I got that goin' for me."
