It’s been seven years since our little buddy sailed off into the ether. But many aren not aware that Gilligan (Bob Denver) had a passion for radio. Today September 4, 2012 marks seven years since his passing, but Little Buddy Radio lives on!
Denver was born in New Rochelle, N.Y., on Jan 9, 1935. He discovered acting while studying law at Loyola University in Los Angeles in the 1950s. While struggling to make it as an actor, he taught private school and worked for a time at a post office.
After landing a small role in the 1959 Sal Mineo film “A Private Affair,” he was cast as Krebs in “Dobie Gillis” and his career took off.
Denver is survived by his wife and children and a granddaughter, Elana.
