Wink Martindale to Host 'Instant Recall' on GSN Starting March 4

Instant RecallFirst, to all of you younger people out there, yes there is someone with the awesome name "Wink Martindale" in the world (he also has a site with the equally awesome name Wink's World). He's hosted a bunch of game shows over the years and now he's going to host another one. The new GSN show 'Instant Recall' starts on March 4.

'Instant Recall' is a hidden camera game show. The contestant has to go through a series of tasks (which we'll see via that hidden camera) and when they are done they have to answer a bunch of questions about what they did to see how good their memories are. I just hope it doesn't have all of that so-called suspenseful lighting and lame commercial breaks like a lot of game shows seem to have now.

Martindale hasn't hosted a game show in over twelve years, so it's going to be good to see him back. If you're not familiar with his work, check out the videos after the jump.

Wink Martindale is a legend. He is the prototype and icon that all game show hosts now and in the past aspire to be like. Kudos to GSN for bringing Wink back into the spotlight. Watch up kids, you might learn something from a real pro. Can't wait to see the new show!

Didn't Wink make a recording called "the sleeping beauty" many years ago? I would love to hear that one again, or better yet, get a copy of it!!

I think that is my dad, actor Brad Olson narrating "1967 Future Prediction".
See his bio on imdb.com.
Always a joy to find something new that he did so long ago!

I've got all of you beat! I remember when Wink Martindale was on radio in his hometown of Jackson TN! He still has a boatload of relatives who live there! How cool that he can still do what he does best. Go Wink!

Wink would be better off on "Lets Make a Deal",that dude that hosts it now isn't worth a crap.
