It was back on June 30, 1954, that Rick Beckett entered this world. If I remember correctly, Rick was the youngest and last child Mr. and Mrs. Beckett had. Hmm, I wonder if there is a reason they stopped having kids after Rick was born?
Rick would have been 66 years old today! If Rick were still with us, would this have been the year he retired? Or would he have wanted to keep working? We will never know.
I tried to find some audio from some “June 30th” along the way, but unfortunately I could not find any. I did find this clip from a day after his birthday — July 1, 2000. A listener claimed to have run into Rick at the video store…
Happy Birthday Old Man! Half way to 130!!!
