I used to love listening to "When Radio Was" back when he was the host.

Changed radio, changed comedy records, changed advertising. And was hilarious. As a kid I would cassette-record his parodies from the Dr. Demento show and borrow his albums from the library and my friends and I would listen to them before class and laugh uproariously. Sorry to see him go.

Freberg did some of the most brilliant television commercials during the 60s.

the Jeno's pizza roll commercials were my favorite because those pizza rolls were a treat for my little sister and I. He was one of the greats.

Oh, man, so sad. Our last link to the Golden Age of Radio.

And he did a lot of great (mostly uncredited) work in the Warner Brothers cartoons.
