Host who came to prominence for marrying Tina Louise of Gilligan's Island Fame. He also hosted ABC's Les Crane Show.
On the radio, he pioneered the weekend Top-40 countdown.
He was ABC's answer to Johnny Carson--and where Carson was nice to his guests, Crane was the bad boy of late-night TV.
He was married to Tina Louise, who played actress Ginger on Gilligan's Island from 1966 to 1974.
Bob Dylan was one of the many musical guests who appeared on Crane's show; he rarely appeared on any American shows in general.
