I'm sure many of you will remember the voice we heard in all those K-Tel TV adverts. And so many other TV spots.....For that reason I post this:

Robert (Bob) Washington, 82, on Dec. 10 dead after battling cancer. Born in Wadena, SK, Washington’s broadcast career took him to Moose Jaw, Saskatoon, Winnipeg and Montreal, then back to Winnipeg. He was a familiar voice on CKRC-AM in the 1960s and by 1975 was program director. “The Wash” as he was dubbed by colleagues, became known worldwide in the 1970s after being drafted as the “Voice of K-Tel” for its television commercials.
