Susan and Lloyd Ecker of The Snorinator, a patented, non-invasive, high density, memory foam pillow that will help you sleep upright and put your snoring to rest for good joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Sleep Health Channel.
Listen to host Eric Dye & guests Susan and Lloyd Ecker discuss the following:
I read your interesting Ecker family business bio. Can you give us some of the highlights and then tell us how you two came up with the Snorinator?
It sounds like you came up with The Snorinator so you would both get better sleep?
2019 was three years ago. What happened next?
I saw in your Press Kit, last month you were awarded a U.S. Patent. What got you that?
If someone is interested in getting more information or purchasing The Snorinator, where should they go?
Besides having three children and three grandchildren, Susan Ecker’s greatest accomplishment is being the sole inspiration for every single one of Lloyd Ecker’s successes.
When they both got to Ithaca College, it would be the first time Susan inspired Lloyd. He knew she was there, but he needed to figure out how to meet her. In 1973, after he got Bette Midler to agree to perform at I.C., the future Eckers went on their first date, had dinner with Midler after the show, and ten years later, in 1983, the couple had been married for eight years and were expecting their third baby. That’s when Susan inspired Lloyd a second time by making him a baseball hat saying “Father-to-be”. Lloyd changed the “Father-to-be” to “Father-to-BEE” with a BumbleBEE logo, expanded with gifts for the entire family-to-BEE, and in 2004 when Babytobee.com was collecting 15,000 mother-to-be names a month, the company sold for 8-figures. All because Susan made Lloyd a silly hat!
After that, Susan gave Lloyd his third inspiration. “I wanna have dinner with Bette Midler again,” his muse stated. So, in 2006 Lloyd got to work on reintroducing a trailblazing Vaudeville star named Sophie Tucker. To date, Team Ecker has been nominated for a Grammy, their documentary got rave reviews in the NY Times, they won a book award, and currently they are producing their musical SOPH which is headed to Broadway. When they make their HBO Tucker series, Lloyd plans to hire Midler to play Sophie and get her a couple of Emmy awards. Then, Susan will have dinner with Bette again!
Which brings us to Susan’s latest Lloyd inspiration, The Snorinator! After forty-five years of marriage and Lloyd’s house rattling snoring, in 2019 Susan finally put her foot down and kicked Lloyd out of the bedroom.” Forget about “Necessity” being the mother of invention. As you now know, for Lloyd, it has always just been “Susan”!
After months of research, and an approved U.S Patent, something else, besides snoring, is once again keeping the Eckers up in the bedroom!
