ON THIS DATE IN HISTORY. 1977: The voice of Fred Flintstone, Alan Reed, died at the age of 69.  Reed never fully recovered from the trauma over his failed rock stardom.  He recorded the song, “Listen to the Mockingbird,” at the Bedrock carnival, achieving cult hero status among the teen-agers.  His wife encouraged him to call the radio station.  He refused because he was afraid that success would go to his head and life on the road would not be suitable for his family. Despite this, his wife went behind his back and called the radio station.  He became an instant smash and went on tour under the name of “Hi-Fi.” Sure enough, success went to his head, and his wife discovered traveling on a tour bus was not so glamorous after all.  So instead of telling him she would rather go home while he finishes up the tour, the selfish skank sabotaged his career by spreading a rumor that “Hi-Fi” was a square.  As Bobble Tiki knows, fame comes briefly for most people and the singing career would have blown out on its own.  BUT NOOOOO! his wife had to destroy a career when he TOLD HER SHE WOULD BE MISERABLE IN THE FIRST PLACE. â€" Bobble Tiki
