Mostly Music

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Hi this is David Cummings host of Mostly Music.

I hope you can join me Thursday September 30th for the next edition of Mostly Music. This week will be the first of a number of shows, between now and the end of the year, I will be doing on “Girl Groups.” Groups mainly from the 60’s, you know all that big hair and plenty of Aqua-Net to keep it in place. This week I will be featuring Darlene Love and the Blossoms. They recorded under a variety of names like Bob E. Soxx and the Blue Jeans, the Rebelettes with Duane Eddy, Moose and the Pelicans and the Wildcats were just a few of the names given to the girls. They were the go-to back-up group for producers like Phil Spector, Lee Hazelwood and Lou Adler on the West Coast.

I would love to hear from you, just click on the Comments & Requests in the upper right corner and let us know what you think of the programs here at KSAV.

Thanks for taking the time to listen,

David C.

Alison Arngrim and The House of Dan Curtis: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Actress/comedienne Alison Arngrim and author Jeff Thompson will join us as we go back to the 1970s on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Known by television audiences worldwide for playing Nellie Oleson, the manipulative young villainess on the long-running NBC television series Little House on the Prairie, Alison Arngrim is also the author of Confessions of a Prairie Bitch, a poignant memoir that not only takes readers behind the scenes of her life on Little House, but reveals how the experience of playing Nellie helped her overcome some very painful, very traumatic experiences that she went through in real life before, during and after the time she appeared on the show, including her struggle to overcome depression, shyness and a history of traumatic abuse, and the devastating loss of her best friend and Little House co-star Steve Tracy to AIDS, which inspired Alison to embark on a second career as a social and political activist.

Alison Arngrim will be joining us in our second hour. In addition, she has upcoming appearances at the South Dakota Festival of Books in Sioux Falls, SD on Sept. 24 and 25, as well as at the Ninth Annual West Hollywood Book Fair in West Hollywood, CA on Sept. 26.

Also joining us in our second hour will be Jeff Thompson, author of House of Dan Curtis and The Television Horrors of Dan Curtis, two excellent new books on the career of Dan Curtis, the Emmy Award-winning producer, director and auteur behind Dark Shadows, The Night Stalker, The Winds of War and other films and television productions. Jeff will also be appearing at the upcoming Nashville Comic Con in Nashville, TN on Sept. 25 and 26.

In our first hour, we’ll replay our tribute to The Night Stalker, the long-remembered Darren McGavin series from 1974 that originated from the two highly rated, hugely successful made-for-TV movies produced by Dan Curtis. That segment originally aired in March 2007 and featured Mark Dawidziak, television critic for the Cleveland Plain Dealer and author of The Night Stalker Companion.

David Vincent and Molly Goldberg: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Friday, September 10th, 2010

The career of Gertrude Berg and the classic Quinn Martin series The Invaders will be among the topics of discussion on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

An entertainment genius and entrepreneur long before Martha Stewart, Rachel Ray and Oprah Winfrey, Gertrude Berg was the driving force behind The Goldbergs, the first successful domestic sitcom in American TV history, which originally aired from 1949 to 1955 following a 20-year run on radio. Though the history of The Goldbergs has been overshadowed by tragedy — Berg’s co-star Philip Loeb took his life in 1955 after being blacklisted a few years before during the “Red Scare” of the early 1950s — that perception is beginning to change, thanks to the DVD release of Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg, an excellent documentary by Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Aviva Kempner that brings to light what a dynamic force Gertrude Berg was. Aviva Kempner will be joining us in our first hour.  In our second hour, we will shift gears and remember The Invaders, the short-lived series starring Roy Thinnes that continues to captivate audiences throughout the world. Our guests will include television historian and author James Rosin, whose latest book is The Invaders: A Quinn Martin TV Series, a behind-the-scenes look at a show that, in many respects, was a cross between The Fugitive and Invasion of The Body Snatchers. The hour will also include an encore presentation of our June 2008 interview with writer, producer and independent filmmaker Larry Cohen, the creator of The Invaders.
