    Ah ha! I came just to see if he was being listed.

    For some reason I remembered him for a magazine show with PM in the title… ???

    RIP- you were one of the MST power Steves. I will watch Hangar 18 in your honor.

    He was the host of Hour Magazine during the 1980s, which was in competition with PM Magazine during that period- could that be the origin of the confusion?

    RIP Gary Collins. I promise to stop confusing you with David Hartman. Thanks for being in one of the only two movies I saw before it was MSTed: Hanger 18.

    It would have been interesting to see if any TV obits for him merely cut to an episode of Night Gallery.

    @GRL That’s probably it. I think we watched the one without him.
