    Graham Kennedy 1934 - 2005

    THE King is dead. Long live The King.

    No matter how many television stars come and go, Graham Kennedy will own the nickname forever.

    He was Australian TV's first and most enduring star - a hugely popular, funny, irreverent trailblazer widely credited with shaping the way the medium is today.

    Many still recall Kennedy's infamous "crow call", which sounded like a four-letter expletive and prompted the then Broadcasting Control Board to suspend him for a week.

    Some knew him best for his naughty game show Blankety Blanks in the 1970s.

    RIP Graham. Thanks for the laughs.

    I wondered when someone would post it, I was just gathering up some info. It took me a few years to appreciate (or understand) his unique style of humour, but once I did, he was certainly a class act (I must admit the "crow call" even went over my head for a few years )

    He will be sadly missed by many RIP Grah-Grah!

    It was just on the news, and I'm like . . what the . . ?

    Although I think the next up and coming "King" of Aussie TV, could very well be Rove. He's got 3 Gold logies in a row, so he's well on his way. He's a bit cleaner than Kennedy, and there's no way TV host's could get away with the antics that Kennedy used to.
