Episode 2 – An Evening with Sam Stern
Roger interviews Sam Stern, founder of Stern Electronics, who at one time was part owner and served as President of Williams Manufacturing Company. Sam is the father of Gary Stern, the Founder and CEO of Stern Pinball. Sam’s experience and success as an operator, distributor and most importantly, manufacturer in pinball has undeniably left a lasting impression on the industry.
This interview took place in Sam’s office at Williams in 1975.
In the mid 1970’s, while working on material for his acclaimed book, Pinball!, Roger Sharpe interviewed many of the greatest luminaries in the world of pinball. Now, over 40 years later, we have a chance to hear these rare recordings and discuss them with Roger himself.
Fun With Bonus is the home of the semi-coherent, misguided ramblings of professional and amateur pinball players.
