That’s a dumb idea! Nobody wants a painter on television. — Bill Alexander
Technology fascinated Bill. He was still giving demonstrations in department stores. He marveled at the rows and rows of televisions on display. He thought about using television to teach viewers how to paint.
This quote, from his autobiography, “The Bill Alexander Story” shows Bill’s foresight. Even Bill, though, thought he might be reaching too high. With the help of his agent in the early 1970’s he had his chance. Bill discovered, much to his shock, that EVERYONE wanted a painter on television!
