Westfield, Massachusetts native Don Pardo will be celebrating his 90th
birthday this Friday.  I remember Don from his days as an announcer on NBC
game shows back in the mid '50s.  He's been with the network since 1944.
Amazing.  Hats off to him!  A true broadcasting legend.

I've always found it a bit odd that Don is very, very seldom seen on
Saturday Night Live, and I don't remember ever seeing him much on TV before
that, despite the ubiquitousness of his voice.  Does anyone know if this is
a personal choice on his part?
