Richard Burns


Richard Burns was a real life Mad Men. As an advertising executive in the 1960s and ’70s, he put the smile on PSA Airplanes and helped create what would become a cultural icon: the talking Fruit of the Loom models.

At the age of 38, he was struck down with a massive stroke and declared dead. He miraculously regained consciousness and was given a second chance at life.

What has he done with it? For starters, he’s published his memoir, “Live or Die: A Stroke of Good Luck.”

Richard joins us to describe his stroke and explains how his situation was so dire, his wife even wrote his obituary for the papers.
