Mike Douglas was a pioneer in daytime talk shows.
He was wholesome like the guy "next door." The entire family could watch his show which can't be said for many shows today. I knew Mike Douglas in his private life - he's a great family man and after his mother passed on, he looked after his father and moved him to south Florida where my wife and I would take him shopping or have him over to dinner. Mike Douglas, a great singer, a personable talk host and a truly nice person who
brought something special into living rooms across America.
