From the Los Angeles Times:
Andy Williams, whose soothing baritone and relaxed performing style made him one of America's top pop vocalists and a popular TV variety-show host in the 1960s when he recorded hits such as "Moon River" and "Days of Wine and Roses," has died. He was 84.

The singer hosted "The Andy Williams Show" on NBC from 1962 to 1967. After doing three specials a year for two years, he returned to the weekly series from 1969 to 1971.
"The Andy Williams Show" won three Emmy Awards, and its casual, sweater-wearing host received two Emmy nominations.

"In some cases, people who go on television, their record sales drop off; mine seemed to go up," Williams told the Orlando Sentinel in 1991.

I'm so glad that Toobworld Central was able to celebrate the contributions of Andy Williams to the world of Television while he was still alive.....
