Remembering June Foray and Richard Anderson: Next on TVC

Animation guru Jerry Beck and radio host David Cummings will join us this weekend on TV CONFIDENTIAL, airing Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,  KSAV.org.

The first hour of this week’s program will be dedicated to Emmy Award-winning actress June Foray, the prolific voice artist who passed away on Tuesday, July 26 at the age of 99. The voice of Rocket J. Squirrel, Natasha Fatale, Nell Fenwick, Cindy Lou Who, Witch Hazel, Talky Tina, and countless other classic film and TV characters, Foray was also a tireless activist, philanthropist and animation advocate who remained a viable force in the industry well into her nineties.

Animation historian Jerry Beck will join us to talk about Foray’s legacy, in front of and behind the camera, while radio host David Cummings will share some memories of his friendship with the actress, which lasted more than ten years. We’ll also discuss Foray’s many contributions to the record industry, her occasional on-camera appearances on such shows as The Johnny Carson Show, and more.

For our listeners in Southern California, the Motion Picture Academy will celebrate the life and career of June Foray at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, Sept. 19. The event is free and is open to the public, but will likely be Standing Room Only. For more information, email friendsofjuneforay@gmail.com.

Our second hour this week will be devoted to Richard Anderson, the actor known around the world as Oscar Goldman on The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. Richard Anderson passed away on Thursday, Aug. 31 at the age of 91.

We were fortunate enough to interview Richard Anderson on several occasions over the past twenty-five years, the most recent of which was recorded for broadcast on TV Confidential in August 2015. It was a well-rounded conversation in which we discussed not only his career-changing role of Oscar Goldman (and how he played him differently on each Bionic series), but his early career as a contract player with MGM, as well as his work in such films as Seconds and Paths of Glory.
