The Fight for Vietnam’s Firebase Kate: Next on TVC

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

Author, journalist and screenwriter Marvin J. Wolf will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Marvin J. Wolf is the author or co-author of seventeen books, including Beating the Odds (the memoirs of ABC founding president Leonard Goldenson), Fallen Angels (an inside look at famous crimes that took place in Hollywood), and the Rabbi Ben mystery novel series, while his credits as a screenwriter include the made-for-TV movie Ladies Night.

Marv’s latest book, Abandoned in Hell: The Fight for Vietnam’s Firebase Kate, is a gripping account of a bloody five-day battle in the central highlands of Vietnam that was led by a young captain named William Albracht. It is a very cinematic story that speaks to the transformational power of individual heroism. It is also a story that, until recently, very few people knew about. Marvin J. Wolf will join us in our first hour.

George Maharis and James Rosin: Next on TVC

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

Actor George Maharis and author James Rosin will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

James Rosin has written a series of books on some of the great shows from the 1960s and 1970s, including Naked City, Peyton Place, The Streets of San Francisco and Wagon Train. Jim has recently updated his book on Route 66 with new information about the classic TV series starring Martin Milner and George Maharis. Jim will join us in our first hour.

And speaking of Route 66, our second hour will include highlights from our April 2012 conversation with George Maharis in which George discusses, among other things, how he approached playing Buz Murdock, as well as the real reason why he left Route 66 in the middle of the third season.

All this, plus a brand new edition of This Week in TV History. It’s a full program as always, and we certainly hope you’ll join us.

Tom Wopat, Don Most, plus the Thanksgiving Day Parade: Next on TVC

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Singer/actors Tom Wopat and Don Most will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision RadioKSAV.org.

Recognized by television viewers as Luke Duke on The Dukes of Hazzard, Tom Wopat is also an accomplished recording artist and musical star known for his roles in such Broadway productions as Annie Get Your Gun, Catered Affair, Chicago, 42nd Street and Sondheim on Sondheim. Tom, along with his longtime friend and fellow Dukes co-star John Schneider, has just released a new CD, Home for Christmas, that will not only get you ready for the holidays, but puts a new spin on several holiday classics while also celebrating their 35-year friendship. Tom Wopat will join us in our first hour.

Tom has several appearances coming up, including Nov. 19 in Strum, Wisconsin, plus two joint appearances with John Schneider: Dec. 2 at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater in New York City, and Dec. 9 at the John Schneider Studios in Holden, Louisiana. For more information on these and other events, go to www.TomWopat.com.

Speaking of singers who are also TV icons, also joining us this week will be Don Most. While most of you know Don as Ralph Malph from Happy Days, as well as his more recent roles on such shows as Men of a Certain Age and Glee, Don’s roots in musical theater—and his love for standards, swing and big band music—date back to his early years growing up in Brooklyn, New York. We’ll talk about Don’s music, his passion for Bobby Darin, and the 40th anniversary of Happy Days when he joins us in our second hour.

Don will be performing his live musical show, Donny Most Sings and Swings, on Friday, Nov. 21 at The Landmark Theater On Main, in Port Washington, NY; Sunday, Nov. 23 at McCloone’s Supper Club, Asbury Park, NJ; a command encore performance on Friday, Dec. 27 at “54 Below” in New York City; and Tuesday, Dec. 30 at Rockwell Table and Stage in Los Angeles, CA. For more information on these and other upcoming dates, go to www.DonMost.net.

Also on this week’s show: 2014 marks the 90th anniversary of the first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. While the parade itself has been a staple of television every Thanksgiving since 1948, most of the early broadcasts have been lost or erased. With that in mind, Phil Gries has put together rare audio highlights of some of the earliest surviving Thanksgiving Day parade coverage as part of a holiday-themed edition of The Sounds of Lost Television.

James McEachin: Next on TVC

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Actor, author, playwright and U.S. Army veteran James McEachin will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision RadioKSAV.org.

Most of you know James McEachin for his many film and television roles, including Lt. Brock on The Perry Mason Mysteries and the starring role in the NBC private-eye series Tenafly. But he is also an accomplished novelist (The Heroin Factor, Farewell to the Mockingbirds, Tell Me a Tale) and playwright (Beyond the Call, Above the Duty), not to mention a decorated U.S. Army veteran with seven medals of valor.

James’ latest project, The Purple Heart, is based on the true story of the discovery of a lost Purple Heart medal that belonged to Lt. Henry Schenk, James’ patrol leader in the Korean War — and the role James played in helping restore that medal to Schenk’s family. The film also discusses the history of the Purple Heart itself, plus issues such as survivors guilt, the right and wrongs of war, and post-traumatic stress disorder. We’ll ask James about The Purple Heart, as well as his work with the likes of Sidney Poitier, John Wayne and Raymond Burr, when he joins us in our second hour.

The Purple Heart is in pre-production. To keep track of the latest developments, or to learn how you or someone you know can become involved in helping to fund the film, go to ThePurple HeartMovie.us.

Also this week: Phil Gries will join us for the final installment of our four-part tribute to late night TV talk show pioneer Les Crane, the first man to compete directly against Johnny Carson on a national level (which he did on ABC from 1964-1965). Crane’s interview style and penchant for discussing taboo topics with controversial guests also paved the way for Phil Donahue, Jenny Jones and Oprah Winfrey.
