Saying Goodbye to Blinky the Clown

Listen Now

We say goodbye to a fixture of Colorado television. Russell Scott, who played "Blinky the Clown," died this week at age 91. For four decades, he entertained kids on the local TV show “Blinky’s Fun Club.” Blinky wore a red plaid sport coat, a clown nose, and a derby. He was known for slapstick, singing, and offering kids safety tips. We'll hear a bit from his TV show and from a filmmaker who put together a documentary about the man behind the clown.
