RIP Bruce B – Heartbroken today. I spent some very quality time with the truly amazing Mr. Bickford over the last few years. Grateful for that time and the work he did on the doc. Look forward to sharing it with everyone. -Alex ‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​‌ ​

Jim Fowler....thoughts of Mutual of Ohmaha show on weekend nights. Marlin Perkins often found hosting the show in some cheepnis-looking artificial library and introducing the segments which often starred Mr. Fowler who had to do all the dangerous work. "Jim will now jump out of the helicopter into the swamp and attempt to manhandle the very dangerous adult rhino while I offer narration to his film-footage."

Always enjoyed when he was a guest on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

She died 9 years ago. Some paper had posted about the anniversary of her death and it was picked up by some other papers as her actual death.
