Another edition of … The Miller Hour!

DWP 3/25

 

 

Star Trekking with Walter Koenig, The Allman Brothers, and the Final Films of Hollywood’s Greatest Directors on the Next *Dave White Presents*!

 

Among the new faces on the second season of *Star Trek* was a young ensign named Pavel Chekov, played by Russian-American actor Walter Koenig.   You remember Chekov—the one with the bad Monkees wig, the screams, and the claims that pretty much every cultural innovation occurred in Russia. But, as chronicled in author Marc Cushman’s *These Are the Voyages- The True History of Star Trek: The Original Series, Season Two*, Chekov wasn’t the only change in the series.

 

On March 25, DWP digs into the story of *Star Trek’s* second year when both Marc Cushman and Walter Koenig join together to take you behind-the-scenes of a legendary time. Even the most knowledgeable fans will likely hear new surprises as Marc discusses the role of producers Gene Coon and D.C. Fontana and why his book has more information on how all the episodes were created than any previous history. And, even though Walter has been answering fan questions for years at all those cons, you should expect stories you’ve not heard before as well! For example,  Walter shares how he looked over the scripts to see if he was still in the show and why he didn’t have a contract, how *Star Trek* has impacted his family, how he felt going to Russia at the invitation of *Babylon 5* fans, and why he thinks you should buy Marc’s book! After all these years, even a major participant in the legend learned many things he didn’t know—

 

In 1971, the Allman Brothers Band hit the big-time with their classic *At the Fillmore* live double-album. Back then, the group was led by virtuoso guitarist Duane Allman along with his brother Gregg (vocals, organ), Dickey Betts (lead guitar, vocals), Berry Oakley (bass), and dual drummers Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny “Jaimoe” Johanson. Within a year, both Duane and Berry had died.  The ABB re-grouped and had their most popular success in 1973 with “Ramblin’ Man.” After that, the institution of the Allman Brothers Band went through so many twists and turns that the full story is a very complex saga indeed.

 

Ironically, we know now that 2014 is the last year of the ABB, so Alan Paul’s *ONE WAY OUT: THE INSIDE STORY OF THE ALLMAN BROTHERS* is the perfect time for all the participants of the group to tell their own story. *One Way Out* is just that—over 60 musicians, managers, roadies, and sisters share their perspectives about how it all unfolded. Paul tells you what his book does that none has offered before in an in-depth and often surprising interview with Wes Britton. It all goes back to the vision of Duane Allman, and we’ll play some musical samples to remind you why Duane remained an important influence on his group, even four decades after his passing.

 

 

It was just a few months back when producer and film critic Nat Segalof came to DWP to discuss his book, *STIRLING SILLIPHANT: THE FINGERS OF GOD*. On our next show, Nat returns, this time to discuss even more Hollywood directors, *Final Cuts: The Last Films Of 50 Great Directors*. Drawing from access to private papers, production records, never-before-published interviews, and specialized archives, *Final Cuts* is intriguing readers by who was featured and who wasn’t in his book. Nat and Dave White talk about how the directors were chosen and discuss the final films of folks like Robert Altman, Alfred Hitchcock, Fred Zinneman, and Sidney Lumet among others. This is one conversation for you to compare your own ideas with those of two very knowledgeable film buffs—

 

So it’s variety entertainment again with a TV classic, a powerhouse rock institution, and a look back to memorable movies on the next *Dave White Presents*, Tuesday, March 25 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over–

The Professor, Hazel and the Rest: Next on TVC

March 18th, 2014

We’ll remember the life and career of actor Russell Johnson on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio.

A decorated World War II pilot, whose many medals included the Purple Heart, Russell Johnson used his G.I. bill to study acting at the Actors Lab in Hollywood following his discharge from the Air Force in 1945. Seven years later, his film and TV career began with appearances in Westerns and science fiction fare, including three films with his good friend Audie Murphy. Though usually cast as a heavy early in his career, Johnson starred as Marshal Gib Scott in the ABC Western series Black Saddle, plus he played heroic figures in two classic episodes of The Twilight Zone, “Execution” and “Back There.”

Today, of course, three generations of television viewers know Russell Johnson as Professor Roy Hinkley on Gilligan’s Island ― and though the actor believed that the show would not last beyond its initial 13-episode order, Gilligan’s Island went on to enjoy a nice three-year run on CBS television (1964-1967), and an endless run in syndication to this day in nearly 30 countries around the world.

We’ll remember the man behind “The Professor” along with Russell’s daughter Kimberly Johnson. Kimberly will share some memories of her dad, plus she’ll talk about his favorite episodes, her favorite episodes, and her dad’s take on the whole Gilligan’s Island pop culture phenomenon.

Also joining us this week will be our friend Bill Funt. The son of Candid Camera originator Allen Funt, Bill first came to know Kimberly and other Gilligan’s Island personnel (including series creator Sherwood Schwartz) as part of an effort to bring the three Gilligan TV-movies from the late 1970s to DVD.

Continuing the “family affair” thread for this week’s program… Our first hour will feature Greg Ehrbar’s interview with Peter Key, the son of Ted Key, the writer/cartoonist whose popular Hazel cartoons for The Saturday Evening Post served as the basis for the long-running comedy series Hazel (CBS, 1961-1966) starring Shirley Booth. If creating Hazel were the only thing that Ted Key did in his career, that would be enough. But he also went to create the characters and format for what eventually became Mr. Peabody and Sherman, as well write three successful comedy movies for Disney, including The $1,000,000 Duck.
