Another Baby Boomer Icon dies - Art Linkletter

 Art Linkletter was known to Baby Boomers mostly for his TV show, “Art Linkletter's House Party”, which was on CBS for 25 years. The most popular segment was “Kids say the darnedest things”, where Art interviewed children of all walks of life and was able to get the most unusual and funny answers from them. Art was an innovator in Television and started many of the ideas used throughout TV to this day.

Art lived to the age of 97 and died on May 26, 2010. He hoped to live to the age of 100 and was very healthy most of those 97 years. Here is a fantastic interview of Art by Growing Bolder Radio Program from 2006 and shows how incredibly quick minded and healthy he was even four years ago. Art was an incredibly talented and intelligent person of our times.
