In the fall of 1974, future Klipsch Chief Engineer Gary Gillum sent PWK a present. At the time Gary worked for Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO contributing to rides and illusory attractions. The gift looked exactly like a brick but was made out of foam.
On Nov. 25, 1974 PWK wrote to Gillum:
“Thanks for the brick. I have thrown it at Ruth (his secretary), Bob (President), and a couple of guys in the shop. I’m planning on (as you suggest) trying it on a police car windshield -- that might be the way to meet the new chief.”
Belle Klipsch typed this letter to Gary and added her own P.S.:
“Paul had a great time throwing the “brick” at the plate glass window at the Trade Winds Café this afternoon!”
This incident pre-dates my tenure by 4 years (he was only 70!). In my experience, this type of mischievous humor was Paul’s calling card until the end.
Anyone have a PWK practical joke to relate?
