In honor of what would have been Stan Major’s 81st birthday this Friday past (September 9th), I thought I’d play his July 4th, 1978 interview with former President Nixon.
After his 1974 resignation, the former President didn’t give many interviews to the media, with the exception of the famous exchanges with British reporter David Frost. But on this Independence Day, Stan was lucky enough to get a hold of him to tell him he’d fare well (or so it was thought at that time) if he re-ran as President. But, under the terms of the 22nd Amendment, since he was elected twice (1968 and 1972), that would make him ineligible to ever run again.
As I’ve mentioned before, I was very fortunate to have worked with Stan briefly at the Sun Radio Network in 1991 and 1992. Political leanings aside, I still say to this day he was an exceptional talent who could have wrote his own ticket there if SRN didn’t let him go. I don’t think it’s a coincidence the network folded a little over three years later.
