I heard about this today on the radio, I used to watch the show a lot back in the 80's but mostly just to see Kari Wurher.

RIP, Ken.

I was at a taping of that show once.

Admittedly it was a fun show, though, I even remember the theme music for it hehe. I can't remember people's birthdays but I remember that damned music lol.
