Actor Scott Baio was here in town over the weekend, hosting his one-man show, “How Did I Get Here?” at Xaverian High School in Bay Ridge.
Canarsien and radio host Jimmy Diele sat down with Scott to talk about his fabulous career for his Celebrity Spotlight radio show on Hamilton Radio and iHeart Radio. He was just 16 when he was cast as Chachi Arcola on Happy Days, where he spent a decade of his life. He then went on to the Happy Days spin-off show, Joanie loves Chachi, and then on to star in Charles in Charge for five seasons. Next, he co-starred in Diagnosis: Murder with Actor Dick Van Dyke. He also starred in several motion pictures including Zapped with his Charles in Charge co-star, Willie Aames.
Scott enjoyed his time here in Brooklyn and went to visit many of the places that were part of his childhood. Many of his fans were astonished to see him back in his old neighborhood. Scott spends the majority of his time with his family these days. It was a great homecoming for a hometown hero.
