Peter Tomarken Press Your Luck host 3/14/06

Peter Tomarken the host of the game show Press Your Luck died in a plane crash. He was trying to do some medical aid work taking someone from San Diego back to LA and his plane went into the ocean. He gained fame on a show which really took very little skill to play. Answer easy questions and then hope for no whammies. Well Peter maybe you can do a show with Rod Roddy in the after life.

Goodbye Peter Tomarken
Day time TV knew you pretty well
You had the grace to host a show
Where whammies would unleash hell
You crawled out of nowhere
With gimmick game shows in your hand
Became a TV regular
No whammies no whammies again

And it seemed to me that you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing when to say
STOP! At the game board again
And I would have liked to know you
But I was just a kid
Even stupid people could do well on your show
Just look at those who did

I loved Peter and "Press Your Luck". I still watch reruns on GSN every Saturday morning! You could tell by watching him he was a nice guy!
