    I didn't know he was still alive. He must have been pretty old.

    I thought he was ancient back in the '70s, but I guess he was only in 40s back then!

    How about an article or link discussing his passing? Usually its a good way to start a thread.

    Joe Franklin dead at 88: Radio and TV icon was the spirit of a hard-working New Yorker

    The Bronx-born host started in television at its dawn in 1950.

    'The Joe Franklin Show' welcomed a string of little-known actors, singers and comedians — from Barbra Streisand to Woody Allen — who went on to become megastars. Franklin died Saturday, reportedly of prostate cancer.


    BY David Hinckley NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
    Updated: Sunday, January 25, 2015, 2:20 AM

    Like the demolition of Ebbets Field or Penn Station, Joe Franklin’s death Saturday took a little piece of New York with it.

    Franklin, who was 88 and reportedly died of prostate cancer, wasn’t just a link to New York’s entertainment history. He was the spirit of the New York streets, the hard-working hustler who made it to the big time because it never occurred to him that he wouldn’t or couldn’t.

    His late-night television show, from 1950 to 1962 on WJZ and then until 1993 on WOR, formed the core of the Joe Franklin legend.

    It’s still in the “Guinness World Records” as the longest continuously running talk show in TV history.

    The Daily News Article is a hoax. Joe Franklin died three years ago.

    Truly one of the industry's pioneers ( that hardly anybody ever really listened to) and seemed like a real good person

    RIP Funnyman
