Last week we lost Dave Madden, who famously played The Partridge Family’s band manager Reuben Kincaid on the TV show. (Lanigan & Malone posted a cool clip from it the other day here) He was 82.
Did you know he was a stand-up comedian? Not the funniest guy in the world, but fun to watch on The Hollywood Palace variety show from what looks to be the late 60s, just before The Partridge Family sit-com began. Maybe this is where they saw him and made the connection to audition him for the show.

ABOUT ME I've been in radio since 1981, starting on Cape Cod, and in Boston, Massachusetts where I grew up. (when The Sox and Patriots both broke everyone's hearts, and the Celtics ruled. Funny how things change.) After 3 years in Las Vegas in the late 80's, early 90's I was looking for work and luckily found myself in Cleveland in 1991, through some mutual radio friends. I got to play the hits as Jammin 92's Night guy until 1999, and met Britney Spears back when she wasn't making people gag. After watching my former company screw up the Jammin' Oldies thing for a couple of years, I came to the Classic Hits station there and soon after found myself here at Big 106.1 in 2001, 2 of the best decisions I ever made! -------------------------------------------------------
