Star Gazer, Jack Horkheimer, remembered; KidVision VPK and the premiere of a new Original production, Parallel Lives
On the ocassion of the 25th anniversary of Star Gazer (2001), WPBT2's producer Joyce Belloise created a story for the series New Florida paying tribute to Jack Horkheimer and the early roots of Star Gazer (originally called Star Hustler).
With the sad news of Jack's passing this week, we thought this affectionate look back at the man and the series was an appropriate tribute.
Even in the last decade, since the New Florida story was created, much has changed in the way Star Gazer was produced but the one constant was always Jack's sense of humor, adventure and wonder as he continued to both teach and learn and take us along as he experienced the endless allure of the night time sky.
