Bill and Wendy speak with Pinball historian Roger Sharpe. Sharpe is wildly credited as the man who “saved” pinball; his demonstration of the game as skill-based overturned New York City’s thirty-four-year ban on pinball machines in 1976. Sharpe talks about the history of pinball and his roots in Chicago. He also previews the upcoming 35th Annual Pinball Expo in Wheeling, IL.
