Franz Owen “Frank” Armbruster was the most colorful guest that host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart ever interviewed. Literally.
Joining Dean in his Denver radio studio in 2013, Armbruster, an extraordinary inventor, came dressed in a furry pimp hat braided with a floral lei, tie-dyed suit, matching rainbow-colored shoes, candy-striped socks, and a bushy, all-white Santa Claus beard.
83-years-young, Frank invented or created 96 products, including the Guiness record-holding bestselling game, Instant Insanity.
Frank had a stroke and passed less than a month after his interview. But each April, in honor of Frank’s birthday, Dean fondly recalls Frank’s infectious can-do entrepreneurial spirit and insights.
