Ken Ober, legendary host of Remote Control and other TV shows (cough), passed away yesterday at the age of 52.

In honor of Ken’s work on one of my favorite childhood game shows, I present to you a collection of high-quality clips. Enjoy.

I auditioned for Remote Control in 1989…or thereabouts. I wore an R.E.M. t-shirt.

MTV only ran a few episodes in the overnight hours as a tribute on MTV2. Woulda hoped for more from a network saluting someone who helped build them in the 80’s.

Woulda hoped, but got what I figured would happen from them: A lot of nothing.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
