  1. Actually, some correction is needed regarding item#39 in the above rundown. Arthur Cushen did indeed leave Invercargill, traveling to various world-stops with his wife Ralda in 1986. It was during their stop in Los Angeles, when the occasion to invite them as in-studio guests on the Ray Briem Show presented itself. As the show’s Producer at the time, I jumped at the opportunity, leading to a very pleasant and informative five-hour in-studio visit–and somewhat selfishly, my own chance to actually meet Arthur Cushen, about whom I’d been reading since childhood. Our show was regularly heard in all fifty states on the ABC Talkradio network, originating at KABC in Los Angeles; our memorable visit by Mr. & Mrs. Cushen took place in September 1986.
