X Child Stars: Next on TVC

Actress and author Kathy Garver will visit us again on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision RadioKSAV.org.

Known to three generations around the world as Cissy from Family Affair (the long-running CBS comedy series that celebrates its golden anniversary on television in 2016), Kathy Garver is also the co-author of a new book, X Child Stars: Where Are They Now?, that provides an inside look at the lives of more than 200 former child stars from your favorite TV shows of the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, from the very first TV star, Keith Thibodeaux (Little Ricky from I Love Lucy), right on through to Oscar winner Leonardo diCaprio and Johnny Galecki of The Big Bang Theory. While some former child actors struggled after their immediate bout with fame, the vast majority of them have gone on to lead productive lives and careers in film and TV, as well as other walks of life. We’ll talk about that, and more, when Kathy joins us in our second hour.

Kathy Garver will also be hosting the Classic TV Nite of Dreams, a gala fundraiser that will benefit the Classic TV Preservation Society, Caterina’s Club and The Donna Reed Foundation for the Performing Arts. If you’re in Southern California (or planning a trip to L.A. in the next week), the event will take place on Sunday, May 22 at the Anaheim White House, 887 S. Anaheim Blvd. in Anaheim, CA beginning at 4pm. Sherry Alberoni (The Mickey Mouse Club), Stanley Livingston (My Three Sons) and Paul Petersen (The Donna Reed Show, A Minor Consideration) are also scheduled to appear that night. For tickets and more information, go to www.niteofdreams.com.

The first hour of this week’s program will include Part 2 of our special tribute to Joey Bishop as part of The Sounds of Lost Television.
