“THIS WEEK, Let’s build a musical night with …Music Blocks!!!”

DWP 6/2

Richard Anderson, Amazing Space, and Buddy Merrill on the Next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS!

 

“We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better…stronger…faster.”

 

From March 7, 1973 – March 6, 1978, we heard the narration above at the beginning of each episode of THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN. We heard these words as spoken by the character of Oscar Goldman as played by actor Richard Anderson.   We also saw and heard Oscar Goldman in the two seasons of THE BIONIC WOMAN and the follow-up TV movies reuniting Steve Austin and Jaimie Sommers which, as it happens, Anderson produced.

 

But lest you think Richard Anderson’s career began and ended with bionic adventures, well, here are a few of his big screen credits: FORBIDDEN PLANET, PATHS OF GLORY, SEVEN DAYS IN MAY, THE LONG, HOT SUMMER, and THE CURSE OF THE FACELESS MAN. Among his countless TV roles, he was Police Lieutenant Steve Drumm in 23 episodes of PERRY MASON. He also featured in THE RIFLEMAN, THE UNTOUCHABLES, I SPY, THE FUGITIVE, THE A-TEAM, REMINGTON STEELE . . . well, you get the point.

Now, you can read Anderson’s story in his new AT LAST . . . A MEMOIR. FROM THE GOLDEN YEARS OF M.G.M. TO THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN TO TODAY.   On June 2, you can hear all about it on the next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS when Richard Anderson sits down with Wes Britton and tells you how Cary Grant helped launch his career, how he worked with some of the finest talent on the M.G.M lot, and how he’ll be reuniting with Lee Majors and Lindsay Wagner at this year’s Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention!

 

Now, we have something breath-takingly spectacular to share with you.   It’s an hour-long film called AMAZING SPACE, and amazing is just the right adjective. Visually, it’s a stream of images of deep space taken by the Hubble Space Telescope (celebrating its 25th anniversary this year) blended with cosmic animation that makes the production a far more 3-Dimentional presentation than a mere slide-show of our universe. Sonically, composer Christin Hoffman provides an instrumental soundtrack that’s amazing on its own merits.

 

On the next DWP, producer Ralph Stevens, the President of Film Chest Media, will tell you how AMAZING SPACE came to be. It’s intended to be a spiritual meditation to take you into your own, inner, peaceful space. He’ll tell you about the brand-new AMAZING SPACE Collector’s edition which includes the film in two formats and a CD of Kristin Hoffman’s music you can take with you wherever you go.

 

Speaking of going deep, we go very deep into the DWP archives to bring back a classic conversation with guitarist Buddy Merrill.  Back on Jan. 20, 2010, Dave White sat down with Buddy who remembered his years on THE LAWRENCE WELK SHOW. Buddy’s time with Welk began in 1955 and lasted for 20 years. Thereafter, he released some 26 albums and was promoting new remastered versions of some of his most popular work on our show. Well, one more time . . .

 

So Richard Anderson, Buddy Merrill, and AMAZING SPACE on the next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS, Tuesday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over–

Author, musician and radio host Mick Martin and author/screenwriter Marvin J. Wolf will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,  KSAV.org.

This week’s program will include a return visit from author, journalist and musician Mick Martin, a man who has enjoyed a long, interesting and successful career in two seemingly opposite fields. For many years, Mick was the film critic for such newspapers as The Sacramento Union. He was also the co-author of Video Movie Guide, the annual guide to movies and TV shows available on home video, as well as the collaborator on such books as Them Ornery Mitchum Boys, the memoirs of character actor John Mitchum. At the same time Mick has enjoyed a long career as a blues musician, having played alongside Bo Diddley, The Yardbirds, Jimmy Smith, and Mick Taylor of the Rolling Stones. He currently hosts Mick Martin’s Blues Party, a weekend radio program heard on Capital Public Radio.

Mick has interviewed hundreds of actors and musicians throughout his career, including Clint Walker, Jack Kelly and Christopher Lee, plus he has a lifelong admiration for the work of many of the great film and TV character actors of the past sixty years. Mick Martin will join us in our first hour.

Our second hour will feature Part 2 of our conversation with author, journalist and screenwriter Marvin J. Wolf (Beating the OddsFallen AngelsAbandoned in Hell: The Fight for Vietnam’s Firebase Kate). Marv is also a decorated U.S. Army veteran who did tours of duty in Korea and Vietnam, as well as statewide. As a matter of fact, while he was in the Army, Marv worked behind the scenes with John Wayne on the making of the movie The Green Berets. We’ll talk about that, and more, during our second hour.

Remembering Bob Hope on His Birthday: Next on TVC

Bill Daily, Connie Stevens and comedy writer Bob Mills will join us on a special encore presentation of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,  KSAV.org.

With Memorial Day weekend upon us, we’ll mark the occasion with a replay of our 2013 tribute to Bob Hope, the iconic entertainer who would have turned 112 this coming May 29.

Joining us in the studio will be longtime comedy writer Bob Mills. Bob spent about two decades in network television, first as a staff writer withThe Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts in the mid 1970s before beginning a 15-year stint as a staff writer for Bob Hope throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. Though Hope was 75 when Mills started writing for him, in many respects he was just beginning to hit his stride as a performer. We’ll find out why when Bob Mills joins us in our first hour.

Bob Mills is also the author of The Laugh Makers, a great book that not only provides insight into both Bob Hope the comedian and Bob Hope the person, but takes you behind the scenes of the last decades of the network variety show while also paying tribute to the “Gag Men” and “Gag Women” who made it happen.

In keeping with our theme this week, we’ll round out the show with replays of our 2014 conversations with singer/actress Connie Stevens(who performed with Bob Hope many times, both on television and on his USO tours) and actor Bill Daily (who channeled Bob Hope when he played Roger Healey on I Dream of Jeannie). Bill Daily, by the way, will be appearing with Barbara Eden at this year’s Fan Expo Dallas, May 29 thru May 31.

Gary U.S. Bonds Remembers Ben E. King, the Misadventures of Ed Wood on the Next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS!

 

On April 30, 2015, music lovers everywhere were saddened to hear of the passing of the legendary Ben E. King. Who can forget the hits he made with The Drifters like “Spanish Harlem”, “I Who Have Nothing,” or his immortal “Stand By Me”?

 

In honor of Ben’s life and legacy,   our next broadcast will include an encore of Wes Britton’s Nov. 23, 2011 interview with King that covered Ben’s musical history along with discussions of current projects King was working on at the time.  But we thought we should also invite someone who knew Ben E. King well to talk about the place King holds in music history.

 

Who better than past DWP guest Gary U.S. Bonds? Yep, the gent who had early ’60s hits like “Quarter to Three,” ’80s hits like “This Little Girl is Mine,” and Gary is still at it!   As it happens, Gary met Ben E. King some 50 years ago when the two struck up a lifelong friendship.

 

On the May 19 DWP, Gary and Wes Britton share a very personal conversation about the days when Ben was a member of the Five Crowns—soon to become The Drifters—and their times on the road together. Did you know the two collaborated in 1996 on a version of The Coasters’ “Youngblood,” a version of the song that’s never been released? So no one has heard this duet before—until now. Yep, along with Ben E. King standards, we’ll offer something new and very special—two old friends having a lot of fun together in the studio!

 

Was there ever a stranger film maker than Ed Wood? For decades, Wood was a screenwriter, director, producer, actor, author, and editor of the types of movies that make us cringe, flinch, but somehow still fascinate us.

 

This June,  authors Andrew J. Rausch and Charles E. Pratt Jr. dive into the weirdness—on and off-screen—in their new book, THE CINEMATIC MISADVENTURES OF ED WOOD. If you thought Tim Burton’s 1994 ED WOOD told the full story, well, wait until Andy and Charles sit down with Dave White and spin many a surprise for you! Now, that’s entertainment!

 

All this and the usual unusual “predictably unpredictable” comedy of DWP  comes your way this Tuesday, May 19 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over–
