Elizabeth Taylor, The Naked City and The Sounds of Lost Television: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

It’s a full program as always on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Our guests this week include television historian Stephen Bowie, publisher of The Classic TV History Blog, an excellent resource that pays homage to some of the great shows from the first 25 years of television. Stephen has just published a three-part series on The Naked City that discusses some of the many great character actors that came into prominence as a result of their appearances on The Naked City, including Bruce Dern, Joe Santos, Ken Kercheval and Richard Castellano. Stephen’s writings also include an in-depth look at the short-lived but controversial series East Side, West Side starring George C. Scott and Cicely Tyson. We’ll talk about these shows and more when Stephen joins us in our second hour.

Also joining us this week will be Phil Gries, founder and owner of Archival Television Audio, the only extensive television audio archive in existence on the Internet, featuring thousands of rare audio soundtracks that, in many cases, represent the only broadcast record of historic moments captured on television in the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, including Don Pardo announcing the death of John F. Kennedy on NBC-TV on Nov. 22, 1963, and Red Barber’s call of Roger Maris’ then-Major League record setting 61st home run, which he hit on the final day of the 1961 season. We’ll play those clips and talk to Phil about how he came to amass this impressive collection when he joins us in our first hour.

Also in our first hour: film critic and entertainment writer Jane Boursaw with some thoughts on the legacy of Elizabeth Taylor.

Swing Museum with Jan Eberle takes a break

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

Thanks to all of you for listening to and supporting Swing Museum since July 2009! Although I have suspended my weekly show right now, I will be back as often as I can with Swing Museum specials. I have always been fond of radio. I believe it is a ‘culture’ that has all, but disappeared, however I know that KSAV has captured and encircled the spirit of OLD TYME RADIO. This is why I came to Share-a-Vision back then … and this is why I will keep coming back. Smile

Those of us who have had the privilege of working in radio know the real deal when they hear it and KSAV is it.

My archives are in the Swing Museum vault … as always, I will leave a light on for you.

God Bless and see you soon!

Jan

Award-winning actor John O’Hurley (Seinfeld, Dancing with the Stars) will be our special guest on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Adam Sandler, Celebrity with Heart: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Sunday, March 13th, 2011

Adam Sandler’s early career in television 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.

The star of such box office smashes as The Waterboy, Billy Madison, The Wedding Singer and Happy Gilmore, Adam Sandler first came to prominence in the early 1990s as one of the stars of Saturday Night Live. But though he tends to play broad, over-the-top type of characters on screen, Sandler is surprisingly quiet and private off screen, devoting much of his time and resources to many charitable causes with little to no fanfare. In many respects that is the focus of Adam Sandler: Celebrity with Heart, a new book by award-winning author and journalist Michael Schuman. We’ll talk about Sandler’s early work in television, including his appearances on The Cosby Show, MTV’s Remote Control and Saturday Night Live, when Michael joins us in our second hour.

Joining us in our first hour will be David Krell with a breakdown of the various issues at stake in Charlie Sheen’s lawsuit against Warner Bros. following his dismissal last week from Two and a Half Men. Plus: Tony Figueroa, Donna Allen and another visit with Doctor Rerun.

Dave White Presents

Friday, March 11th, 2011

How’s this for variety entertainment—Bongos, Toys, gangsters, and Frank Sinatra?

 

On the March 15 edition of Dave White Presents, former Bongos frontman Richard Barone talks about his days with his popular ‘80s alternative New Wave band, his memoir FRONTMAN, and his great new album, GLO, produced by the legendary Tony Visconti. We’ll play two tracks from GLOW for you.

 

Then, we go back in time with Barbara Harris, former lead singer with The Toys, most famous for the 1965 hit, “A Lover’s Concerto.” Barbara talks about recording in those heady times and what she’s doing now. We’ll play two of Barbara’s tunes, old and new.

 

Then, author Richard Herschlag discusses his book, SINATRA, GOTTI AND ME: THE RISE AND FALL OF JILLY’S NIGHTCLUB. Co-written with Tony Delvecchio, it’s where GOODFELLAS meets the likes of Sinatra, Sammy Davis, and Andy Warhol.

 

All this comes Tues. March 15 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over—

The Music of Jerry Goldsmith: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

Jerry Goldsmith’s contributions to music in television will be the focus of the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

One of the most prominent and prolific motion picture composers of the 20th century, Jerry Goldsmith composed the scores for such classic films as Planet of the Apes, Patton, Chinatown, The Omen, The Boys from Brazil, Alien, Poltergeist, Hoosiers, Basic Instinct, Rudy, L.A. Confidential, three of the Rambo films and five of the films in the Star Trek motion picture series. But Goldsmith also left his mark in television, composing the themes to such diverse series and miniseries as The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Room 222, Police Story, Barnaby Jones, Masada and QB VII, as well as contributing music to The Twilight Zone, The Fugitive, G.E. Theater and many of the great anthology series from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Joining us this week as we pay tribute to Jerry Goldsmith will be Jon Burlingame, one of the leading authorities on the subject of music in film and television, and the author of such books as TV’s Biggest Hits: The Story of Television Themes from Dragnet to Friends. Jon will be moderating a panel discussion on Goldsmith on Sunday, Mar. 13 at UCLA’s Royce Hall as a part of a day-long event honoring the composer’s many contributions to American music and the advancement of the art of composing for film and television. We will talk about this, as well as play samples of some of Goldsmith’s work in television, when Jon joins us in our second hour.

Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen will join us in our first hour as we look back at last week’s Oscar telecast, as well as catch up on the latest with Charlie Sheen. All this, plus This Week in Television History.
