I saw Paul Revere in Rosemont a few years ago. My guess is his son will get the Mustang keyboard.

Dr. Guinter Kahn the inventor of Rogaine (minoxidil) hair growth formula has died at the age of 80.

"He had to fight for years, even as his own hair fell out, but North Miami Beach dermatologist Dr. Guinter Kahn will be remembered as the man who helped countless men regrow hair on bald heads.

In 1986, after much back-and-forth for 15 years between Kahn with his medical assistant, Dr. Paul Grant, against the giant Upjohn, Co., the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office added Kahn’s name to the first patent granted for a baldness remedy, minoxidil, which would be sold under the familiar name Rogaine."

An aside -- I remember going on a talent audition for Skip E. Lowe, who was trying to put together a weekend live variety show in Hollywood. This was back in the late 70's or early 80's. I played a song or two and he was singularly unimpressed. I should have done a standup routine, spouting off L. A. gas station prices instead!

Before Don Pardo announced for SNL, he was the announcer for the pre-Alex Trebek edition of Jeopardy. He even was featured on Wierd Al Yankovic's pardoy of Jeopardy.

Quite some years back, Saturday Night Live held a contest calld "Anyone Can Host," inviting one member of the public to host a show, if they could answer the question, "Why would you want to?" My submission was "So I can finally meet Don Pardo." It didn't win.

New Person to say farewell to: Michael Brown. Whatever he did or didn't do, he sure set Ferguson, MO on its ear.
