Pioneer Talk Show Host Mike Douglas Died Today

I remember watching Mike Douglas as a kid. He had a great afternoon talk show. I didn't like his singing style, but I loved the show. My grandparents watched everyday, and so did I.

An excerpt: "In his memoir, Douglas fondly recalled when Tiger Woods, who as a toddler was already drawing attention, appeared on the same 1978 show as Bob Hope, an avid golfer. 'I don't know what kind of drugs they've got this kid on," Hope quipped, "but I want some.'"

Great guests, great host; family entertainment was never so good. Rest in peace, Mr Douglas.
