The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Gone to a quieter place

Actor Gordon Jump, most recently the lonely Maytag repairman but perhaps best remembered as Arthur Carlson, manager of the fictional radio station on the TV series WKRP in Cincinnati, has died in Orange County, California at the age of 71.

No turkeys were involved.

Bye bye, Mr Carlson! (He is in some very good company of late!)

That is quite sad; I loved WKRP in Cincinatti.

What's more sad, though, is that I didn't even hear about this until now. I didn't see it on the news at all! At least I know that when the news fails me, I can rely on the blogging community to keep me posted. LOL.
