1970s / Guest Dies During TV Talk Show
On June 5, 1971, Jerome Irving Rodale (pictured here) was a guest on Dick Cavett's prime time talk show. Rodale, a pioneer in organic foods and a longevity guru, had stated he intended to live to be 100 years old. When Cavett began interviewing his next guest (political journalist Pete Hammill), Rodale made a snoring-like sound and slumped over. Cavett thought Rodale had fallen asleep. 'Are we boring you, Mr. Rodale?' asked Cavett. Nope. The 72-year-old Rodale had succumbed to a fatal heart attack. The show was never aired.
