A lot of staples of my teenage years as well as some way to close to my age for comfort.

We are the first generation to have grown up with non-family faces in all aspects of out life via TV. It is interesting to see the art of those departed re-appear in reruns and recordings. Kinda makes one feel sad for artists like Wyeth where the association is not with the person but the life's work.
