Often-times I find that I'm unfamiliar with the names of these long-ago stars but when I see a picture like this one, it's an "a-ha" moment.

Dang.. I heard about this the other day. I was just watching Daniel Boone on a Retro Television channel on DirecTV in Colorado.

These two shows were some of me and my brothers favorites. So sad someone who was such a big part of Americana is now gone. R.I.P. Fess.
