That doesn't surprise me, particularly with all the neon on SP the set. It's why Barker never used a wireless. Wireless mics and neon don't agree. Having contestants crane their necks to see the game board was a another problem.  [/quote]

At a TPIR taping I was at in 1995, Barker explained that wireless mics have "drop out" which is why he used one with a cord.
Aah. The old "dead spots" gambit. Well, I guess the technology improved enough by the time Carey became host to warrant its use.
