The Loss of Carter B. Smith

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Colleagues and Friends:

 

                I’m sorry to report that the legendary CARTER B. SMITH passed away yesterday after a significant illness.  CB was a good friend of mine and of KSAV radio.   He enjoyed listening to us,  receiving our emails,  and was very generous with his time and skills in helping me program the station.   Due to his health,  he declined my offers to do a program on our station,  but it was very reluctantly as I could see in his face he really liked the idea.   We had been in discussions about Susan having him as a guest and she had already begun her research.

 

                CB had been very forthright with me about his health problems which he continued to fight.   It seems like it was just last week that Roy and I sat with CB at Sam’s enjoying a nice lunch and laughing and remembering names and faces from great broadcast careers and times.   I sensed over the last few months that his quality of life was deteriorating.   His last public appearance was last summer at KRE where he sat in the control room and broadcast one final time.   I was honored to be there with him.   We had some email dialog after the Hall of Fame inductions last fall which sadly he could not attend.  (he was class of 07) and I relayed personal greetings from his friends and colleagues.   Recently his grand daughter said he was not doing well and did not recognize her anymore so I knew this was coming.    I just wasn’t ready for it when I looked at my Blackberry and saw the message from Mark Silverman with the subject  “carter b. smith just passed away”.

 

                I lost a friend yesterday;   and broadcasting lost a LEGEND.  God bless you, CB.

Silverman, Starman and Suva: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

KSAV talk show host Mark Silverman, author Ray Starman and Pioneers of Television consultant Jim Suva will be our guests on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Ray Starman is the author of TV Noir: The Twentieth Century, a new book that discusses the portrayal of film noir in such classic shows as Dragnet, The Fugitive, The Untouchables, M Squad, The Lineup, The Prisoner, Miami Vice and other popular television series over the past 60 years. Though often considered a genre that strictly applies to crime and detective dramas, film noir lends itself to other television genres, including war dramas such as Twelve O’Clock High, as well as explorations of paranoia and the paranormal, as seen in The Invaders and The X Files. We’ll talk about these shows, as well as the various kinds of film noir depicted in television, when Ray joins us in our second hour.

Joining us in our first hour will be Mark Silverman, host of a radio talk show on news and politics that is broadcast every week on our affiliate station KSAV.org. We’ll talk a bit about political talk shows on cable television, including Mark’s thoughts on the new Piers Morgan show on CNN, as well as Keith Olbermann’s sudden departure from MSNBC.

Also in our first hour we’ll welcome Jim Suva, a “star car” researcher who not only is a consultant to the upcoming “Crime Drama” segment of Pioneers of Television that premieres Feb. 1 on PBS, but also provided an authentic replica of Jim Rockford’s famous Pontiac Firebird that will be featured on the program. We’ll talk about Jim’s involvement with Pioneers of Television, as well as his interest in film and TV cars in general.

All this, plus a new edition of This Week in TV History. Full program as always… we certainly hope you’ll join us.

The Bright Side

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

Join Pharmacist Ben Fuchs today at 2PM PT for The Bright Side.

Orchestra Hall Today

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

Welcome to Orchestra Hall,

I invite you to attend Orchestra Hall, Sunday, January 16th at noon.  The program includes two exquisite piano concertos by Wolfgana Amadeus Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 20 in D Minor and Piano Concerto No. 21 in C. Both performed by Mitsuko Uchida. Uchida is an elegant pianist who strikes an inspired balance of head and heart in everything she plays. She is an audience favorite and master Mozart interpreter. Few pianists today command the respect and awe accorded to Mitsuko Uchida.

Two of Mozarts greatest concertos performed by one of today’s great pianists, Mitsuko Uchida. A program not to be missed …  Mozart and Uchida on Orchestra Hall.

Mostly Music with David Cummings

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Hi this is David Cummings host of Mostly Music.

I hope you can join me Thursday January 13th for the next edition of the show. This week we are off to New York City to take a look at some of the songs released by NYC based CO ED records. CO ED was the home of the Crests, the Duprees, and a number of other lesser known but capable artists.  The music is good so I hope you will be tuning in.


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.

David Cummings is a guest on Getting To Know You

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Hi Everyone,

My guest on Tuesday’s show is David Cummings. You know David because he hosts “Mostly Music” every Thursday evening here on KSAV.org. He also hosts a show on KFAI FM in Minneapolis/St. Paul.

I googled David Cummings and tried to find some information about him but …. I’m determined to get to know him since I couldn’t find out a thing about him.

So, since he told me he is in “The Witness Protection Program” I thought it only fair for all of us to get to know him, Tuesday on “Getting to Know You” at 6:30 p.m. pacific and eastern time right here on KSAV.org.

I guess he won’t be in that “Protection Program” anymore ….

See ya Tuesday night,

Susan McCray
