Personal Quote:

Howdy-hi, Shindiggers! We've got a 'Shindig!' for you that's so far in, it's out of sight! (O'Neill's opening for every show)


He was barely out of his teens when he became Los Angeles' top-rated radio deejay, and was only 24 when he became a national celebrity as the host of "Shindig!," one of the earliest rock 'n' roll shows on prime-time TV. See more »
