IN PRAISE OF ART LINKLETTER
On Wednesday May 26th, 2014, Art Linkletter, my partner of the last 15 years passed away in his home in Bel-Air, California. I am deeply saddned and have lost a great friend and business partner.
Art Linkletter was the Oprah of the 50's & 60's.
At his peak, he had shows on all three networks: ABC's "Life with Linkletter," CBS's "Art Linkletter's House Party," his feature, called "Art & The Kids" (not "Kids Say The Darndest Things," that was from his book of the same title published by Prentice Hall) and NBC's "People Are Funny."
I also placed "Kids Say The Darndest Things" as a weekly column in The National Enquirer, and it ran for four years.
The book "Kids Say The Darndest Things" was one of the Top 15 Best Sellers of all time. "House Party" bowed on radio, and Art got the idea when his son Jack came home and Art said how did you like school, and Jack said, "I'm not going back. I can't read, I can't write, and they won't let me talk."
