I used to watch the King Klubhouse back in the 50s/60s on KING 5, as we got KING 5 on cable at that time on the Oregon Coast. I just read on the NW BCers site, Stan passed away at 91. Sorry to hear this.
With Stan’s passing, yet another part of my childhood is indeed now gone. For this 61-year-old Baby Boomer who grew up in Seattle, the very talented, funny and witty Stan on KING-TV was a daily part of my life, as was Chris Wedes as J.P. Patches on KIRO-TV. That leaves “Brakeman Bill” McLain from the old KTNT-TV 11 as now apparently the last survivor of the daily kids’ show era in Seattle. I have lived in Oregon since 1985, and the two kids TV legends here — “Ramblin’ Rod” Anders from KPTV and Jim “Rusty Nails” Allen from KATU and KPTV, have both passed away. All these folks were terrific people.
