Special Edition: Radio Man

This is Radio Man.

He's a formerly homeless man who's become a New York television and film institution.  He's friends with many celebrities, is plugged into all sorts of inside information, and has had cameo roles in shows and films such as "30 Rock," "Elf," and many others.  You can read more about him here and here.

Radio Man sometimes hangs out on 53rd street to schmooze with the celebrities.  I realized that he's in several CelebriGum photos.

With Harrison Ford

With Tim McGraw

With Henry Winkler

With Michael J. Fox

With Adam Sandler (challenging)

Extra challenge: Find Radio Man in a CelebriGum picture posted sometime during the month of August!

Super-difficult bonus challenge: determine whether the radio is set to the AM or FM band and what station it's tuned to, using military-grade photo enhancement technology, or by squinting!


  1. I think I see him in "Patrick Dempsey behind a mail truck!" but It could just be another guy with a radio around his neck. As is the style these days.

  2. David, you're the Extra Challenge winner!

    Super-Difficult Bonus Challenge still up for grabs.

  3. Doesn't look like anyone else will take the Super-Difficult Bonus Challenge, so I'll give it a shot.

    I think it's FM, and I know what frequency it's tuned to but I don't know what station it is. It's tuned to 101.1 FM.

    I hope I get partial credit. Also, prove me wrong.

  4. Uhhh....okay, sure. Congratulations, you're the winner of the 101.1 FM contest! You win two tickets to this weekend's Led Zeppelin concert at the Cape Cod Melody Tent!

  5. I often win in contests, where I'm the only one competing.
