I cannot let the passing of David Nelson, today, go by without saying "so long" to another part of a boomer's childhood. The OZZIE AND HARRIOT SHOW ran from 1952-1966. I have to admit that I tuned in to see Ricky, the little brother, sing at the end of the program. That had to be in the early to med 1960's by guessing ages. David continued appearing on television and directing, through the 1060s and 70s.
I don't doubt he will most remembered for being the "older brother of Ricky Nelson". He didn't seem to have the demons that his brother seemed to fight.
Thanks for the memories David. They are good ones.
