Huell Howser at the Baghdad Cafe

Huell Howser passed away today.  Though he was just a minor California celebrity, he was huge in my eyes.

Growing up, I watched him every week on TV.  He would visit random sites throughout California and interview people.  He could make anything sound exciting.  He was genuine and curious.  His Tennessee accent was awesome.

This clip perfectly captures Howser's style (and the oddballs he often talked to):

Rest in peace.
