The Big Picture of Business – Tribute to a Great Mentor. Remembering Cactus Pryor.
AUGUST 28, 2015
Mine was legendary humorist and media figure Cactus Pryor. His father, Skinny Pryor, owned a movie theatre and entertained audiences with comedy routines during intermissions. From Cactus Pryor and a 24-year old newscaster named Bill Moyers, I learned that if you take the dirtiest job and do it better than everyone else, you will be a solid expert. Music programming was important to Cactus Pryor and, thus, to me. He was the “other Richard Pryor.”
