Friday was his 81st birthday. He marked it by dying. From The Associated Press:
The afternoon talk show, which aired from 1961 to 1982, featured Douglas' ballad and big-band singing style, other musicians, comedians, political personalities and sports figures. His interviews included seven men who were then, had been or would become president.
We grew up watching Douglas after school. Odd little factoid: Roger Ailes was Douglas' producer. He's gone on to bigger things.
