Al Alberts

Al Alberts leaves us today at 87.

Alberts was a member of the popular vocal quartet The Four Aces, but is probably best known (in his hometown of Philadelphia at least) as the host of Al Alberts Showcase - a kid's talent show.

Al had a way with kids. Just look at all the happy faces in this clip - which features Al singing "Little Man, You've Had a Busy Day". (As one of the commenters wisely points out, the kids are probably all crying because they know they're going to get their asses kicked at the playground the next day).
