Frank Bonner, WKRP in Cincinnati's Herb Tarlek has passed away. It one was of the iconic America television shows of the late 1970s.

Also John Paragon, Jambi on Pee Wee's Playhouse. He actually passed away in April, but his death was not publicized until today.

Dr Geoffrey Edelstein, once owner of the Sydney Swans football team. Age 78.

A cultural icon? Hmmm, that bears thinking about!!

Ditto.  More often than not the folks about whom all these death notices are posted are "notable people" rather than "icons."

Yep. "Notable" can sometimes be only a step or two removed from "notorious".
In any case, he was hardly an "icon".  :P ....R.I.P.

Vladimir Valentinovich Menshov (September 17, 1939, Baku, Azerbaijan SSR — July 5, 2021, Moscow, Russia) was a Soviet and Russian actor, film director, screenwriter, producer, TV presenter, teacher; People's Artist of the RSFSR (1989), winner of the USSR State Prize (1981), the State Prize of the RSFSR named after N. K. Krupskaya (1978) and the Academy Award "Oscar" in the category "Best Foreign Language Film" for the film "Moscow does not believe in Tears" (1981).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Menshov

The Titans are leaving.

As a director, he made only 5 films. About three of them, I would say-a masterpiece.

Dolores Olga Claman (6 July 1927 – July 2021) was best known for composing The Hockey Theme, the iconic theme music to CBC's Hockey Night in Canada broadcast. (NOTE: The Hockey Theme has no official standing as a national anthem.)

We've lost Una Stubbs.

Probably virtually unknown outside of the UK until Mrs. Hudson put her in homes (Holmes?) all over the world.
I'm of an age to remember the original 'Till Death Us Do Part' but, as that is no longer shown on TV, I'm not sure anyone under 60 will be familiar with that.

I remember her as I was growing up as Aunt Sally in Worzel Gummidge around 78/79 and of course the Holmes series more recently.

Well known down here in Aus - loved Worzel Gummage. Never really liked 'Till Death Us Do Part' - never understood why domestic anger was funny, or why no-one acted upon the 'Death' part...

Wow. That's two Night Court actors on the same year... Harry Anderson and John Larroquette must be sweating a bit.

I hear today Sean Lock passed. I've actually seen a few youtube videos of some of the TV quizz comedy shows lately so I do recognize him.

Way back in 1992 I was a member of 'The Vampyre Society' and around the time of Coppola's 'Dracula' we were much in demand on TV shows.
We did one late night show called 'Dial Midnight' which included vampire related content, an interview with Michael Winner and music from rap artist JC-001.

Also on the show making one of his very earliest TV appearances was Sean Lock.
He hadn't really found his footing in comedy and his best joke was 'Never trust an electrician with singed eyebrows'.
I'm afraid he was heckled badly.

But over time he became one of my favourite comedians.

He had such a quick one-liner wit, with perfect straight-faced delivery. So sorry he's gone.

No. Harry Anderson hasn't been doing any sweating since 2018.
