I grew up with this guy. Parked in front of the B&W TV as a pre-schooler by my mom.
He came into and out of my life randomly during his late night show. Always a blast to watch particularly through the marijuana haze of my late teens/early twenties. The strangest mishmash of guests you'll ever see. For all the trite, schmaltzy stuff; he was original as hell. One of a kind. He was never ever rude.
