RIP Ken "White Shadow" Howard
It's been a strange day and I'm still shocked. Went in for a smog check and tune up and left with a DOA Volvo. Back to topic...Only 71 years young and such an illustrious career. White Shadow was probably the first drama to deal with mostly Black youth and issues like V.D. (remember that term?)
Anyway, I never understand why, 35 years after its last airing, that repeats of the White Shadow were never shown in repeats. Most of the topics are still relevant today and the retro factors even more interesting. Maybe Bounce TV will get an idea...
