Frazier Thomas (actually, I hated him as a kid...)

That's okay. As I understand it, the feeling was mutual.

(He was ringmaster on Bozo's Circus for a while, obviously had no patience with the little ankle-biters)

Heard him Nick DiGillio's(sp) WGN radio show on 10/28. He was very good.

He also does a 'Three Stooges' show with lots of trivia and info on the skits.
Not my cup of tea but his knowledge in this area is damned near encyclopedic.

I'm happy for you Svengoolie, and I'mma let you recover, but Dr. Shock was the best horror host of all time.
