1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

The professor has passed....

    In later years, he would comment how curious it was that the Professor could make a radio from a coconut, but couldn't fix a hole in a boat?

    Loved the show. The Professor was the only character that could have gotten them off the island using a coconut shell radio transmitter! RIP Russell Johnson

    I remember that one.

    If I was him there with Mary Ann I would have made sure no one got off that island.

    Odd that he died on the same day as Reuben from the Partridge Family.

    Wifey says it always comes in threes, but she also says she's seen ghosts in our old house.
