RIP GALE STORM AND FRED TRAVALENA........

Just a short clip - Gale Storm passed away at 87 years of age (another one bites the dust), and I grew up watching her "My Little Margie" series, shown here. Later she had another show "The Gale Storm Show" with Zazu Pitts. They were a hilarious couple, with Pitts being the quintessential "straight man" to Storm. In my humble opinion, Gale Storm presented the hilariously funny comedic shows that were a precursor to the Lucille Ball phenomenon. RIP Gale Storm.



Since June is apparently now the month of DEATH, Fred Travelena, comedian and impersonator has also passed away from cancer. He was a regular on the Merv Griffin and Mike Douglas shows long before he hit the Las Vegas circuit.

I have some houekeeping chores to start, so I shall return......later..........

I wondered who would be #'s 5 and 6 and now I have my answer.

I grew up watching Gale Storm too, and she was one of my favorites. I met Fred Travelena back in the early 90's at a trade show in LA. He was charming and so nice to all the people who came up to his booth. I thought of him about 3 weeks ago. I am sad about both of them.

Fred Travelena. Now there's a name I haven't heard in ages. June has been a tough month for celebrities.
