Mike Learned Surprising Things About Bob Ross Like His Voice, Hair And What He Kept in His Shirt Pocket

PBS’s The Joy of Painting star, Bob Ross, like Elvis, is bigger in death than when he was alive. I spoke with Joan Kowalski, daughter of the woman who discovered him when he was giving painting classes.

Lots of surprises about his voice, hair and what he sometimes kept in his shirt pocket. His entire episodes are on TUBI.TV, a free TV show streaming service.
