Lies, Sex and Radio at the North Bend Public Library

The North Bend Public Library welcomes local historian Dick Wagner on Wednesday, July 17 at 6:30 PM for a talk on the colorful life and career of the famed radio host M. Sayle Taylor, a self-proclaimed sex and marriage expert who rose to national prominence in the 1930s with his radio show the “Voice of Experience.” Before his rise to fame, Taylor was closely connected to the Coos Bay area and served as Marshfield High principal in 1922-23 and North Bend School Superintendent from 1923-26. Additionally, he was the first leader “Captain Kidd” of the booster group, Coos Bay Pirates in the 1920s. However, despite his illustrious career as a successful media psychologist, he lacked professional credentials and qualifications and he led a secret life that concealed a dark history of crime and deception.
