When I was a kid he used to show up on--oh my, I can't remember--"Wonderama"? "The David Susskind Show"??

My earliest knowledge of Randi started all the way back in his Alice Cooper days.

My most recent news about him (and this is probably already old) was a challenge to prove or debunk the audible differences in audiophile hi-fi cables.
It had something to do with Michael Fremer, an audio "expert" who was going to take up the Pro position of the experiment on behalf of some boutique company that manufactured obscenely expensive cables.
Randi's position was that it was all snake oil.
As I recall, the challenge was dropped by both Fremer and the company.

I love any guy who is a sh*t disturber that fights in the name of logic and common sense.

RIP.

He reminded me of the magic shop owner in that nasty Hitchcock episode with Dill from TKAM.

I would concur - a great loss. You can be healthily skeptical yet still appreciate the magic of theater.

One of my few heroes. Not many left at all now.
