Johnny O's birthday
« on: May 22, 2006, 04:01:09 PM »
Today is Johnny Olson's birthday, and although I am not old enough myself to remember him on Price and most of his other shows (aside from clips and reruns and such), his contribution to television and game shows in particular will never be forgotten.  Here's to you Johnny!

Incidentally, he would have been 96 years old today.

Indeed, his work remains the gold standard of game show announcing.

Happy birthday, Johnny.  We know you'd still be on TPiR even at 96!
