Lindsay Wagner, Robert Colbert, and Jimmy Weldon: Next on TVC

Monday, June 10th, 2019

Actors Lindsay Wagner and Robert Colbert and voice artist and motivational speaker Jimmy Weldon will join us this weekend for an encore presentation of TV CONFIDENTIAL, airing Friday 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Both the Hollywood Museum and the Los Angeles City Council recently honored Emmy Award-winning actress Lindsay Wagner at an event that also marked the official unveiling of the new Six Million Dollar Man/Bionic Woman exhibit that is now on display at the Museum. With that in mind, we thought we’d mark that occasion by playing highlights of Lindsay’s appearance on TV Confidential from June 2015. Among other topics, we asked Lindsay which episode of The Bionic Woman earned her the Emmy Award for Best Dramatic Actress in 1976. We’ll replay that conversation in our second hour.

This week’s program will also include an encore presentation of our November 2012 interview with Robert Colbert, the actor known around the world as Doug Phillips on The Time Tunnel and, among fans of TV Westerns and the old Warner Bros. Television shows, Brent Maverick on Maverick. Bob shared a few memories of these and other highlights from his fifty-year screen career—a career that began with his stirring performance of a dramatic poem in 1956. We’ll replay our conversation with Robert Colbert in our second hour.

Also this week: We’ll replay our June 2016 conversation with actor, author, and motivational speaker Jimmy Weldon. While most of you probably know Jimmy as the voice of Yakky Doodle on the Yogi Bear show in the 1960s, he also hosted The Webster Webfoot Show, one of the very first local children’s TV shows, which originated in Dallas. One of our country’s most inspirational speakers, Jimmy gives many talks—including one on the American flag that he performs several times a year—while his book, Go Get ’em Tiger, is 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. We’ll replay our conversation with Jimmy Weldon in our first hour.

Hollywood’s Most Influential Woman, The Most Interesting Man in the World, plus The Genius of Tim Conway: Next on TVC

Wednesday, June 5th, 2019

Donelle Dadigan, founder and president of The Hollywood Museum, and Emmy Award-winning writer/producer Geoffrey Mark will join us this weekend on TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Donelle Dadigan, founder and president of The Hollywood Museum, will join us this week for a look at some of the many exhibits that will be on display this summer, including Remembering Lucy, the Six Million Dollar Man/Bionic Woman exhibit, the fabulous tribute to the six actress who have played The Catwoman, plus two more exhibits that will become open to the people in June. We will also play more highlights of our special coverage of recent events from the floor of The Hollywood Museum, plus a few other surprises.

Also a member of the California Film Commission, as well as the chair of both the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the Hollywood Historic Trust, Donelle Dadigan is also considered Hollywood’s most influential woman. We’ll learn why when she joins us in our second hour.

Our first hour will include an encore presentation of our conversation with Jonathan Goldsmith, the prolific film and television actor with more than five hundred screen credits under his belt, including Hang ‘em High, The Shootist, Go Tell the Spartans, Ice Station Zebra, Gunsmoke, The Fugitive, The FBI, The Rockford Files, T.J. Hooker, Dallas, and Magnum, p.i. Without question, however, Jonathan is best known as The Most Interesting Man in the World, the character he played in a wildly popular ad campaign for Dos Equis beer that not only increased national sales Dos Equis beer by 15 percent, but made Jonathan the idol of young and old consumers alike, including such high-profile fans as Michael Jordan, Leonardo diCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, and President Barack Obama.

The Most Interesting Man in the World character not only catapulted Jonathan from obscurity, but came to him at a time and place in his life when he needed it the most. We’ll talk about that, and more, when Jonathan Goldsmith joins us in our first hour.

Also this week: Emmy Award-winning and Grammy Award-nominated writer, producer, performer, author, music and TV historian, and showbiz raconteur Geoffrey Mark will join us during our first hour for a remembrance of Tim Conway, the beloved star of McHale’s Navy and The Carol Burnett Show who passed away on Tuesday, May 14. Geoff not only knew Conway personally, but has insight into Conway’s unique improvisational genius.
