"I had the opportunity and privilege to interview the famed mentalist, The Amazing Kreskin, who possesses the talent of thought reading. He has been thrilling audiences with performances of his skill at venues ranging from university concerts, television shows, state fairs of 19,000 people to private home parties. Performing for almost 60 years, he has flown almost 3 million miles, and at the age of 80, performed 364 shows last year. Kreskin first became aware of his talent when in 3rd grade, his brother hid a penny in their home, and Kreskin found the penny. He said two great influences in his life were radio and television personalities, Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, and Arthur Godfrey."
