Not exactly music-related, but a SALUTE to a long-time and great entertainer…


Those of you who are old enough to remember Soupy Sales get a smile on your face (at least it’s not a PIE IN YOUR FACE!) when you even hear the name. Why? Here’s a Wikipedia entry on the man who passed away yesterday:

Soupy Sales (January 8, 1926 – October 22, 2009) was a Jewish American comedian, actor, and radio-TV personality and host. He was best known for his local and network children’s television show, Lunch with Soupy Sales; a series of comedy sketches frequently ending with Sales receiving a pie in the face, which became his trademark.

From 1968 to 1975, he was a regular panelist on the syndicated revival of What’s My Line? and appeared on several other TV game shows. During the 1980s Sales hosted his own show on WNBC-AM in New York City.

Please Google his name, and find out more about him…he was a gem, and will be missed by all who knew him or knew his unique brand of FUNNY! You will get a kick looking at any videos you can find on him…he made the world a funnier (fun) place!!! Dearest Soupy, R.I.P.
