Yes, I was in the audience for a Donahue show in NY in fall of 1995. It was on crystal meth, and I was high on the weed in the dead center of the crowd wearing a terry cloth shirt that looks like a towel. I was a bartender in college and had a guy come up to me at the bar later that spring, who said that he recognized me from the show because he had been made to watch it in rehab. Really drunk, "Dude, you're that Donahue guy, I had to watch you in rehab," as if I had been a guest or something on the show. Alas, I was a measly audience member too high to realize he was in the middle and hence in every single camera angle of the audience.
