His name is Andrew Frey. Respect.

Pbs’ Ghostwriter Show Identity Revealed

↳ Posted on January 13th, 2014 by Ben Spera

ghost-writerMost anyone who was a kid in the 90s will remember PBS’s TV show Ghostwriter. The show was about a bunch of kids who tried to solve mysteries with the help of some ghost that could rearrange the words they wrote in a notebook. It doesn’t sound like much of a plot but it was interesting for  a young kid in the 90s. I had horrible handwriting as a kid and the show was very frustrating for me because all the kids had neat, legible handwriting. Read more…
