I remember when Dad played The 2000 Year Old Man album (LP).

Carl Reiner IMO was one of the most influential and most creative minds in the industry for many decades. Heck, he was active socially and politically until this week! A life well lived and a wonderful legacy. RIP

I read the article but no where in it does it give credit to his appearances on Two and a Half Men.

Such a brilliant mind and such a loss. I believe that leaves Dick van Dyke and Larry Mathews as the only surviving regulars on the Dick van Dyke show. Rest in Piece Mr. Reiner

RIP Mr. Reiner. Him living to be 98 I can’t help but think humo(u)r is healthy. Humour and banjos go hand-in-hand. .....

And who’da thunk it - there's a banjo connection - Reiner was involved with the genesis of “Sing Out!” Magazine.
From Roger Deitz’s 45th Anniversary celebration article in 1995:
“Box by box, the magazine was moved out of its high-rent mid-Manhattan office on Eighth Avenue and relocated to Moss’ hometown of Easton. Pete picked up his banjo and headed many fundraising concerts, just like the hootenannies of old. Friends from the People’s Songs days, notable founders such as Carl Reiner and Lena Horne, and also more recent friends like Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, donated to the resurrection. When the dust cleared, more than $30,000 had been raised, Seeger and Moss were co-editors, $22,000 was paid off with $8,000 available for seed money. The spring was set for the startup of the renewed Sing Out!. “
