Harvey Korman, Blazing Saddles and Muhammad Ali: Next on TVC

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Chris Korman will join us for Part 2 of our tribute to actor Harvey Korman on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Chris Korman returns this week for Part 2 of our conversation about the life and career of his father, actor/comedian Harvey Korman. While everyone knows Harvey Korman as one of the stars of The Carol Burnett Show, he was also a gifted teacher and a mentor to many young actors and comedians (including John Ritter and Garry Shandling), as well as a loving father who instilled a lot of wisdom and life lessons that Chris still lives by today. We’ll talk about Harvey’s work with Mel Brooks, how he approached the various characters he played every week The Carol Burnett Show, and a few other topics when Chris Korman joins us in our second hour.

Chris Korman is also one of the many people featured The Carol Burnett Show Companion: So We Glad We Had This Time, Wesley Hyatt’s excellent behind-the-scenes history of the iconic CBS variety series. If you are in Los Angeles (or planning a trip to L.A. in the next couple weeks), you can meet Wes and Chris at Book Soup, 8818 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood, CA on Saturday, July 16 beginning at 4pm. For more information, go to the events page at BookSoup.com.

Jimmy Weldon: Next on TVC

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

Actor, author and motivational speaker Jimmy Weldon will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Most of you know Jimmy Weldon as the voice of Yakky Doodle on Yogi Bear, which continues to air on Cartoon Network and Boomerang. Some of you may know him as the host of one of the very first local children’s TV shows, The Webster Webfoot Show, one of the very first local children’s TV shows, which originated in Dallas and aired for many years in Los Angeles and in Fresno. Still others remember Jimmy from his many appearances on such classic TV shows as Dallas and The Rockford Files.

Or you may have seen Jimmy Weldon speak at one of your local venues. He has been one of the country’s leading motivational speakers for more than four decades, and he shares many of his ideas in his book, Go Get ’Em Tiger, a part autobiographical, part motivational book that shows that the real definition of success is becoming the person you want to be and doing what you really want to do. Jimmy Weldon will join us during our second hour.

Our first hour will include a remembrance of Alan Young by Greg Ehrbar that will particularly focus on Young’s long-running radio and TV variety series (which featured, among others, a pre-Gilligan’s Island Jim Backus) as well as the actor’s many contributions to Disney Records. Plus: Phil Gries will join us for Part 5 of our tribute to Joey Bishop as part of the Sounds of Lost Television. This segment will include audio highlights from Bishop’s ABC late night talk show, including a rarely heard interview with Mutual radio journalist Andrew West that includes West’s first-person coverage of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles on June 5, 1968.
