    Chuck McCann, 83

    In fact, one of McCann's most memorable roles came in a series of TV spots for Right Guard throughout the 1970s and '80s.

    Sharing a medicine cabinet with his neighbor on the other side of the bathroom wall, McCann would bellow a cheerful "Hi Guy!" from behind the glass shelves to the stunned bathrobed person next door. McCann would then go on to extol the benefits of this particular brand of spray-on deodorant.

    McCann also created the voice of Sonny the Cuckoo Bird for General Mills' Cocoa Puffs TV commercials. His loony intonation of "I'm cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs" endeared the character to generations of cereal lovers.

    Milos Forman, 86.

    Just a few years later, Mr. Forman’s “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” — a tragicomic story of revolt and repression in a mental institution — won five Oscars, including those for best director and best picture.

    The film put Mr. Forman in the front rank of those who struggled to make big, commercial films with countercultural sensibilities. His sympathy for the odd man out was always apparent, even as his movies grew in scope.

    “Amadeus,” a 1984 adaptation of Peter Shaffer’s stage play, presented Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as a genius who undermined authority with his art. Again, Oscars for best director and best picture were among its many honors.

    Met him a few years ago with my brother. Nice guy and funny.
    I told him my brother was Pyle. His reply was, “every unit has a Pyle.”

    Harry Anderson, age 65

    https://www.nbcchicago.com/entertain...479928703.html

    Before he presided over Night Court, he did several turns as a guest star on "Cheers," portraying a wise-cracking con man who took advantage of Sam Malone.

    Following the success of his Cheers appearances, the actor remained in NBC's heralded Must See TV block when he was cast as the lead in Night Court, where he played a judge tasked with overhearing the bizarre cases that entered a Manhattan circuit court on the night shift. The series aired for nine seasons, with Anderson earning three Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series nominations over Night Court's run.

    RIP, Harry.

    That block was my "growing-up" years ... Cosby, Family Ties (?), Cheers, Night Court, LA Law ( arguably, imho, the greatest three hour stretch of tv every week for 5 - ? years)
    So many brackets, so little time.

    Carl Kasell, a radio personality who brought gravitas and goofiness to the airwaves, first as a staid newsreader on NPR’s “Morning Edition” and later as the comic foil and scorekeeper on the delightfully silly news quiz show “Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me!,” died April 17 at an assisted-living center in Potomac, Md. He was 84.

    A wonderful wonderful woman, an American icon in her own right. For a time, an argument could be made she was one of the top 3 most powerful women in the world.

    Larry Harvey, who co-founded what evolved into the nation’s most outlandish anti-establishment art, music and exhibitionist extravaganza ― the Burning Man festival ― died Saturday at a San Francisco hospital. He was 70 and had suffered stroke earlier this month.

    His death was announced on the Burning Man website, which hailed Harvey as “our founder, friend and original instigator.”

    From the [U]Esquire[U] Archives:

    The Metropole is probably the perfect place for a folk hero to show up at in New York. It is kind of a crossroads, or ideal type, of all the hot spots and live joints in the country. I can tell you two things about it that will help you understand what the Metropole is like, if you have never been there. First, the color motif is submarine green and Prussian blue, all reflected in huge wall-to-wall mirrors. If the stand-up beer crowd gets so thick you can’t see over them to the bandstand, you can always watch through the mirrors. Second, the place attracts high-livers of a sort that was there that night. I particularly remember one young guy, standing there at the bar in the submarine-green and Prussian-blue light with sunglasses on. He had on a roll-collar shirt, a silvery tie, a pale-grey suit of the Continental cut and pointed black shoes. He had a king-size cigarette pasted on his lower lip, and when the band played The Saints, he broke into a terribly “in” and hip grin, which brought the cigarette up horizontal. He clapped his hands and hammered his right heel in time to the drums and kept his eyes on the trumpet player the whole time. The thing is, kids don’t even do that at Williams College anymore, but they do it at the Metropole.

    Doug Ford, the oldest surviving Masters champion and a former PGA player of the year, has died. He was 95.

    Ford was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2011. He won the 1955 PGA Championship and then two years later won the Masters when he shot 66 in the final round to rally from a three-shot deficit to Sam Snead.

    Ford was the PGA Player of the Year that season. He collected the first of his 19 tour victories in 1952, and his last win was in 1963.

    He played on the Senior Tour when it began in 1980, and he twice won a division for older players at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf.
