So long to the guy that shaped my childhood. He was responsible for most of my favorite shows. Fantasy Island, The Love Boat, and Starsky and Hutch among them. I didn’t know Aaron Spelling and yet I can say that he has embedded himself in my consciousness for all time. Every time I hear “The Plane”, Huggybear, or see a cruise ship…the emotional response I have is because of this guy. Thanks Aaron.
