DWP 12/2

Rockers in Recovery, Actor Michael Dante, and Two Dave Whites on the Next *Dave White Presents*!

 

Michael Dante is one of those actors you might not know by name, but you’d easily recognize him due to his long TV and film career. He’s perhaps best known for starring on the *Star Trek* episode “Friday’s Child,” but he’s also appeared in 30 films and 150 television shows.

 

On Tues, Dec. 2, Michael Dante comes to *DWP* to discuss his career with guest host Marc Cushman. (Marc, as *DWP* listeners know, also has a long career in entertainment including being the author of the three-volume *These Are the Voyages* series.) Marc and Michael discuss Michael’s career that began when he was a professional baseball player before he starred in films like *Winterhawk* and *Seven Thieves*, not to mention TV shows like “Get Smart*, Bonanza*, *Maverick*, and his recurring role of Crazy Horse on *Custer.* Not surprisingly, Michael has a new book out from our friends at BearManor Media, *From Hollywood to Michael Dante Way*. You’ll enjoy this one as Michael has many funny anecdotes to share–

 

Since 2008, Rockers In Recovery and the Rockers In Recovery All-Star band have provided support for people and their families suffering from all forms of addiction.  They do this by, among other activities,  hosting festivals and concerts all over the country featuring recovering musicians, by offering a free help line at their website, sharing their message via their own radio shows and magazine,  and supporting scientists working on improving addiction recovery rates.

 

One of the founders of Rockers in Recovery, John Hollis, will share many more details with you on the next *DWP*, including how you can join the effort or get help for someone you love. It’s the time of year to be thinking about neighbors and family in need, and we think Rockers in Recovery is a fine organization you might want to support.

 

Now—can two Dave Whites get together without a fight breaking out?   That question may not be as far-fetched as you might think as one of them is the author of *Fight Card: Bridgeport Brawler*, one of the *Fight Card* boxing pulp series.

 

Longtime *DWP* listeners may recall two-time guest, police officer, author, and TV personality Paul Bishop. Back in 2012, he co-founded the *Fight Card* books which present “’50s noir tales set in exotic locales and across America’s heartland.” To date, these pulps feature boxing and martial arts, boxing and romance, and even a line of books featuring boxing and Sherlock Holmes. One of the many writers in the series is, of course, the other Dave White. His *Bridgeport Brawler*, set in Chicago in 1953, is all about a heavyweight champ forced by the Mafia to take a dive. Need we say more?

 

So actor Michael Dante, Rockers in Recovery, and two DW’s on the next *Dave White Presents*, Tuesday, Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over–

Tom Wopat, Don Most, plus the Thanksgiving Day Parade: Next on TVC

Singer/actors Tom Wopat and Don Most will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision RadioKSAV.org.

Recognized by television viewers as Luke Duke on The Dukes of HazzardTom Wopat is also an accomplished recording artist and musical star known for his roles in such Broadway productions as Annie Get Your Gun, Catered Affair, Chicago, 42nd Street and Sondheim on Sondheim. Tom, along with his longtime friend and fellow Dukes co-star John Schneider, has just released a new CD, Home for Christmas, that will not only get you ready for the holidays, but puts a new spin on several holiday classics while also celebrating their 35-year friendship. Tom Wopat will join us in our first hour.

Tom has several appearances coming up, including Nov. 19 in Strum, Wisconsin, plus two joint appearances with John Schneider: Dec. 2 at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater in New York City, and Dec. 9 at the John Schneider Studios in Holden, Louisiana. For more information on these and other events, go to www.TomWopat.com.

Speaking of singers who are also TV icons, also joining us this week will be Don Most. While most of you know Don as Ralph Malph from Happy Days, as well as his more recent roles on such shows as Men of a Certain Age and Glee, Don’s roots in musical theater—and his love for standards, swing and big band music—date back to his early years growing up in Brooklyn, New York. We’ll talk about Don’s music, his passion for Bobby Darin, and the 40th anniversary of Happy Days when he joins us in our second hour.

Don will be performing his live musical show, Donny Most Sings and Swings, on Friday, Nov. 21 at The Landmark Theater On Main, in Port Washington, NY; Sunday, Nov. 23 at McCloone’s Supper Club, Asbury Park, NJ; a command encore performance on Friday, Dec. 27 at “54 Below” in New York City; and Tuesday, Dec. 30 at Rockwell Table and Stage in Los Angeles, CA. For more information on these and other upcoming dates, go to www.DonMost.net.

Also on this week’s show: 2014 marks the 90th anniversary of the first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. While the parade itself has been a staple of television every Thanksgiving since 1948, most of the early broadcasts have been lost or erased. With that in mind, Phil Gries has put together rare audio highlights of some of the earliest surviving Thanksgiving Day parade coverage as part of a holiday-themed edition of The Sounds of Lost Television.
