Bill Peach was part of the landscape of my youth. I grew up with TDT and Bill’s affable and good natured take on the day’s news and current affairs.
Although they may not have yet lain him to rest, I’m wondering whether he’ll be rotating in the ground when he considers the work of the contemporary heirs to his 7:30 time slot, not the least their political coverage.
It’s sad to think he’s gone and his loss adds a fresh reminder to the passing of the years.
Check out the set in this picture – complete with red painted (and chipped edges) plywood desk, thermos flask and Thunderbirds TV monitor. They don’t make them like that any more.
