Our second hour will include a replay of our March 2014 tribute to Russell Johnson, the actor known to three generations as Professor Roy Hinkley on Gilligan’s Island. Russell’s daughter Kimberly Johnson will share some memories of her dad, plus she’ll talk about his favorite episodes, her favorite episodes, and her dad’s take on the whole Gilligan’s Island pop culture phenomenon.
Also joining us in our second hour will be our friend Bill Funt. The son of Candid Camera originator Allen Funt, Bill first came to know Kimberly and other Gilligan’s Island personnel (including series creator Sherwood Schwartz) as part of an effort to bring the three GilliganTV-movies from the late 1970s to DVD.
Our first hour will include an encore presentation of our November 2012 conversation with author James Rosin, whose books on music, film and television include The Streets of San Francisco: A Quinn Martin TV Series, everything you wanted to know about the long-running ABC police drama starring Karl Malden and Michael Douglas. Quinn Martin himself believed that The Streets of San Francisco was the best show that he ever produced.
James Rosin will be appearing at this year’s MidAtlantic Nostalgia Convention, Sept. 17-19 at the Hunt Valley Wyndham in Hunt Valley, MD.
