We’ve lost another of the companions of our youth.
For my money, Sgt. Baker couldn’t carry Sgt. Kincheloe’s dog tags.
Last one leaving Stalag 13, turn out the lights, please.
“Hogan’s Heroes March,” Bob Crane with John Banner, from “The TV Theme Song Sing-Along Album,” 1985. Out of print. Perhaps thankfully.
It originally was on this album, “Bob Crane: His Drums and Orchestra Play the Funny Side of TV.”
But not this album, “Hogan’s Heroes Sing the Best of World War II,” on which Dixon performed.
Wow. I really do not want to know. If you do, go here.
Update, two days later: I don’t wish to slight Dixon’s memory by failing to mention other aspects of his distinguished career. As noted in the Los Angeles Times’ appreciation, he also was a fine dramatic actor, a highly regarded director and an advocate for African-Americans in the film industry.
