Pete Myers, also known as Mad Daddy Myers and The Mad Daddy, American disc jockey (April 7, 1928 - October 4, 1968) was #born Pierre Myers in San Francisco, California to Pierre and Gayle Myers. Pete Myers claimed an IQ of 172. He studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London). He served in the US Army, and once sent a 'Mayday!' radio transmission that North Korean forces were about to be attack by a sea monster. He first appeared in his Mad Daddy persona on Cleveland's WHK in 1958. Working without a script, Myers frentic delivery employed rhymes like "roopity doopity skippity flop!", skits about "winky blinky juice", screwball dedications ("howdy doody little stinkers!") and bizarre advertisements for his show's sponsors were all completely improvised. He attempted to break into television as the presenter of a late-night horror show, appearing upside down like a bat hanging from the ceiling. He broke his WHK contract by signing a deal with a rival station, and was served with an injunction for doing so banning him from the airwaves for three months. In order to stay in the public eye at that time, he parachutied into a lake dressed as Zorro. While popular in Cleveland, when Myers took his Mad Daddy act to New York City, it was not well received. After his first show on the city's WNEW in June 1959, the corporation was flooded with phone calls and letters of complaint. It would be four years before Myers would attempt to revive his Mad Daddy routine, by which time he and the other original Rock & Roll shock-jocks were out of step with popular taste at that time. Myers persevered in radio for another five years, until he took his life on October 4, 1968, dying of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in the bathroom of his Upper East Side New York City apartment.
