Pat O’Brien was a skinny South Dakota kid with
long hair, a rock and roll band, divorced parents, and an alcoholic father. In
all the familiar ways, he was on the road to nowhere until a professor, who
envisioned his future as the household name he would soon become, dramatically
changed his life.
From that day forward, Pat’s life took turns
that were both spectacular and destructive—from the Huntley-Brinkley Report
and afternoons at Bobby Kennedy’s living room with Muhammad Ali to
conversations with six presidents. He did acid with Timothy Leary, drank with
Mickey Mantle, and was up close and personal
with the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Kennedys, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan,
Tiger Woods, and virtually every star in Hollywood.
In I’ll Be Back Right after This, Pat reveals the highs and lows of the life of a radio and television broadcaster—a life spent sharing the mic with the world’s rich and famous while battling an
infamous public scandal and demons that nearly killed him. With laughter, tears, and miracles, he reveals how he learned to accept his mistakes, find redemption, and become the father he never had, proving there really are second and even
third acts in life. Download and start listening now!
