Lloyd Thaxton


If you're a baby boomer, the name Lloyd Thaxton will ring a bell.

He was the host of a popular TV rock and roll dance show in the early '60s. What set Thaxton apart from the iconic Dick Clark was a whacky quality to his program, which was filled with costumes and sight gags.

Lloyd Thaxton died this week at age 81. If you still can't quite place him, this Los Angeles Times obit (with video) will refresh your memory.
