Remembering George Carlin on Share-a-Vision Radio

In case you missed it, Frankie and I paid tribute to the late George Carlin during the July 10 edition of Talking Television on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org. Besides playing a brief clip from NBC’s Saturday Night in which Carlin performed his classic routine on the differences between football and baseball, we discussed his skillful use of the English language, his biting commentaries on American culture, and his impact on comedy over the past 30 years.

Author Michael Seth Starr: This week on Share-a-Vision Radio

The life and career of Raymond Burr will be the subject of the next edition of Talking Television with Dave White, this Tuesday, July 10, beginning at 10:30pm ET, 7:30pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org. Whether you knew him as Perry Mason, Robert Ironside or the many movie villains he played (including Lars Thorwald in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window), Raymond Burr was a powerful presence on television for over 40 years. But offscreen, he was something of an enigma. We’ll unwrap the mystery that was Burr with our guest Michael Seth Starr, author of “Hiding in Plain Sight: The Secret Life of Raymond Burr,” a compassionate look at the life and career of this TV icon. If you’re a fan of Raymond Burr, if you grew up watching Perry Mason and/or Ironside, we invite you to join guest hosts Ed Robertson and Frankie Montiforte beginning at 10:30pm ET, 7:30pm PT on KSAV.org. What’s your favorite Raymond Burr movie role or TV series? Let us know and tell us why. Phone number is (800) 407-KSAV (5728), email address is talk@ksav.org or ed@talkingtelevision.org.
