Let’s see, we’ve had Elvis impersonators, roving robots, Dr. Evil, mad scientists….could Last Gadget Standing get even kookier? I’m afraid so.
Next week’s tenth-anniversary edition could be it. In addition to me, Harry McCracken, and your judging team, the event will be hosted by Jon Hein and special guest Gary “Baba Booey” Dell’Abate from The Wrap up Show on the Howard Stern channel on SiriusXM Radio. Hein’s tech claim to fame came is the creation of Jump the Shark, devoted to the moments where there’s only one way to go: downhill. (Just ask Fonzie).
Dell’Abate, producer of The Howard Stern Show and author of They Call Me Baba Booey, is a home theater devotee who writes a column for Sound and Vision magazine. They’re really looking forward to being with thousands of kindred spirits so we hope you’ll show up and cheer ‘em on. Mark your calendars for Saturday, Jan. 8th at 10:30am in Room N255, the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. More surprises to come!
And for those of you who can’t be with us in lovely Las Vegas, please vote online starting on January 5th. We’ll post the video the instant it’s ready–promise.
