As most others have written, your series "The Wild Wild West" was a staple from youth. My SP attire with Bavarian jacket was inspired by your wardrobe of a strong hero that always escaped to save the day. The gadgets from your partner were also great. My well wishes in the new year with your radio show.
I'm sure you get this all the time, but I don't, so I just want to say thank you for The Wild Wild West. I'm turning 65 next month, and your show was one of the staples of my youth. James West was da bomb, and despite the modern special effects and otherwise classy actor, the Fresh Prince couldn't hold your coat. Great era, great show. Bravo, sir, bravo!
Thanks again for everything.

I remember hearing a rumor when I was a teen that you had a house in my subdivision (Twelve Oaks) in Tampa, Florida. You know I cycled every street in the subdivision every day for nearly a year looking to catch a glimpse of you. I think you were doing Black Sheep at the time .... I had such a crush!
