I was 9 when one of my friends told me that one of the best tv announcers had passed, then when wheel lost Charlie it was even worse it was a blow to the childhood as i had grown up with Rod, Randy West, Charlie O'Donnel and Johnny Gilbert as the announcers of my favorite shows. Out of all his successors in Price, Rich and Randy were the best the others are ugh.
I was 6 years old at that time when Rod passed away.
Wow, I can't believe it been 10 years since the show lost it famous announcer. I was stocked at the time when I heard Mr. Roddy passed away. He was one of the best.
