For those baby boomers from Boston, Rex Trailer, host of 'Boomtown' died on January 9, 2013

Anyone appear on his show as a kid? From 1956 to 1974, every Saturday and Sunday morning on WBZ-TV, Rex Trailer and his various sidekicks (I remember 'Pablo') hosted "Boomtown." Great childhood memories.

A magical, innocent time that can never be created because of all the technology, yet can re-visited because of the very same technology.

R1. That's rather profound. Nice comment.

I watched Boomtown because it was the only Saturday morning show to feature the cartoon "Hercules," who was such a hunk and was always shirtless. Thank you, Rex.
