KSAV Format Changes

Monday, January 25th, 2010

Greetings Listeners:

I have made what I hope you will view as positive changes to the KSAV lineup/format. As you know we have added great new hosts like David Cummings and Hoot Hooten which brings new dimensions to our programming. Here are some updates:

Country and Rail music has been removed from our daily music library and is now exclusives in the Kountry Korner at 6:00 PM PT & ET every Tuesday.

With the addition of Dusty Records at 6:00 PM PT & ET every Friday, the 78’s have been moved from daily play. Dusty will also include great new comedy segments.

We have added some more “current” music into our daily plays which should bring us a bit of the 70’s maybe 80’s. Also a few current artists like Barbra Streisand, Harry Connick Jr, Michael Buble etc. But not to worry; all the great Music Of Your Life is untouched.

More music and less talk will likely please all of our listeners. Many listen to us at work and they will be better served by this one.

Watch the website for details and please use our COMMENTS AND REQUESTS form on the site to give us your feedback. We listen to you so you’ll listen to us.

Pleasant Listening

Dan White, Program Director

PS – there is NO truth to the rumor that Conan O”Brian will be moving his show to 10PM on KSAV

“I Love Lucy” historian Bart Andrews dies at age 64

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

In many respects, people like me owe a debt to Bart Andrews. His  I Love Lucy Book helped establish television history as a legitimate nonfiction genre, while his efforts as an agent led to the original publication of The Bewitched Book by Herbie J Pilato, a good book in its own right that keeps getting better with every updated edition.

Here is the obituary on Bart Andrews from the Los Angeles Times:

Jack Klugman: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

Emmy and Golden Globe winner Jack Klugman will be our special guest on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 11pm ET, 8pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Whether you think of him as New York sportswriter Oscar Madison in The Odd Couple, the crusading Los Angeles coroner in Quincy, M.E. or his stellar work in such classic series as The Twilight Zone, The Naked City and The Fugitive, Jack Klugman is hands down one of the best television actors ever to grace the medium. We’ll talk about his career as well as his book, Tony and Me, a poignant look at his 50-year friendship with actor Tony Randall. Jack Klugman will be joining us in our first hour.

Then in our second hour, we’ll shift gears as we remember Alias Smith and Jones, the popular Western series from the early 1970s starring Pete Duel and Ben Murphy. Though the history of the show is overshadowed by the suicide of Pete Duel in December 1971, Alias Smith and Jones brought a youthful spin to the Western genre that remains fresh and entertaining today. Joining us this hour will be author Paul Green, whose books include Pete Duel: A Biography and A History of Television’s The Virginian. TV CONFIDENTIAL with Ed Robertson and Frankie Montiforte

Kountry Korner returns to KSAV

Monday, January 11th, 2010

As part of our continuing effort to improve the programs on KSAV and be responsive to listener’s requests,  we are pleased to announce that the very popular KOUNTRY KORNER returns to KSAV.    Tuesday nights at 6:00 PM ET and PT listen for all the great COUNTRY Music of Your Life.

Perfectly Frank

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

Perfectly Frank featuing the music of Frank Sinatra and his friends will now air at 7:00 PM PACIFIC AND EASTERN times on Tuesdays. So two chances to listen to the great FS music.

Cindy Brady, thirtysomething and More: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Saturday, January 9th, 2010

Join us as we look back on two iconic TV shows (one from the ’70s, the other from the ’80s) on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Tuesday, Jan. 12 at 11pm ET, 8pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Actress Susan Olsen (Cindy on The Brady Bunch) and author Ted Nichelson are scheduled to join us in our first hour. They’ll be talking about their new book, Love to Love You Bradys, an inside look at the making of the short-lived but long remembered Brady Bunch Variety Hour, which aired on ABC as an occasional series during the spring of 1977. Featuring interviews with nearly all of the original Brady cast members, as well as such behind-the-scenes personnel as Bruce Vilanch and Paul Shafer, the book is an insightful look at the television industry that also happens to chronicle the strangest chapter in Brady Bunch history.

Then in our second hour, we’ll welcome back Joseph Dougherty, the Emmy-winning writer, producer and director behind thirtysomething, Judging Amy, Saved, Saving Grace and other quality television series. We’ll talk about these shows and more… we certainly hope you’ll join us.

Florence Henderson on what made “The Brady Bunch” work

Monday, January 4th, 2010

“I think it helped that I had four young children of my own at the time,” the singer/actress said in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle. “I understood what it was to be a parent. I also knew what it was to have longings as a child. Plus we all worked very hard and had a special feeling for each other. I still see all my ‘children.’ Eve Plumb [Jan Brady] came to my show in L.A.”

Henderson is bringing her one-woman show, “All The Lives of Me: A Musical Journey,” to the Rrazz Room at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco for a one-week engagement (Jan. 5 thru Jan. 10).

And speaking of The Brady Bunch, Susan Olsen (“Cindy Brady”) is scheduled to join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Tuesday, Jan. 12 at 11pm ET, 8pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio. She’ll be talking about her new book, Love to Love You Bradys: The Bizarre Story of The Brady Bunch Variety Hour, along with her co-author Ted Nichelson.
