Dave White Presents

2013-06-17

Gary Puckett, The Del-lords, and Life After Death with Forrest J Ackerman on the Next Dave White Presents! "Young Girl." "Lady Willpower." "Woman, Woman." "Over You." From 1967 to 1970, Gary Puckett was the centerpiece of the power ballad hitmakers, the Union Gap. Clad in Civil War uniforms, the group's versatile musicianship revolved around Puckett's distinctive, warm tenor voice and a band good enough to trade instruments on stage. All these years later, Puckett is still at it! This summer, he joins Flo and Eddie (The Turtles), Chuck Negron (Three Dog Night), Mark Lindsey (Paul Revere and the Raiders), and Gary Lewis (The Playboys) in the "Happy Together" tour appearing in 53 cities. On Tuesday, June 18, find out what happens when all these old timers hit the road again and go back in time as Gary shares some stories of the '60s with you on the new DWP! Is there a new album in the works? The Del-lords are a different breed of roots rock. Back in the '80s, with veterans of The Dictators and Joan Jett's Blackhearts coming together, The Del-lords became East Coast cult favorites with deserved critical acclaim for their 4 studio albums. Now, three of the original members have reunited to release The Elvis Club, and album that should convince you rock and roll will never die! On the next DWP, principal singer and songwriter Scott Kempner has lots to say about The Dictators, the first albums by The Del-lords, and The Elvis Club. If you're into the Heartbreakers or The Eagles, this is the music for you—and of course we'll play two kick out the jams samples! One of them, co-written by Kempner with the legendary Dion, is based on an extraordinary story about the night the music died . . . Who coined the term, "sci-fi"? It was Forrest J Ackerman, editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland and co-creator of Vampirella. He died on December 4, 2008. But is Forrey still speaking to us from the grave? On May 15, "The Life After Death Project" aired on the SyFy network where writer, producer, and director Paul Davids presented evidence that he's among those Ackerman has sent messages to from the other side. Davids' documentary has been described as "A mesmerizing CSI-caliber quest for proof of life after death. Four New York Times best-selling authors, three top science professors and three well-respected mediums make a leap into the unknown, investigating astonishing evidence in the case of apparent `After Death Communication.'” The film, and its new sequel, are now available on DVD. Find out what mysteries are explored when Davids shares his stories with you, along with the music of Gary Puckett and the Del-lords, on Tuesday, June 18, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php On Wed. June 19, the 90 minute show will become available as a podcast, mp3 download, from itunes, through TEVO and Sticher.com, or on the player at-- www.audioentertainment.org/dwp Keep up with entertainment news at the Dave White Presents Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dave-White-Presents/153177177306…

The Next Dave White Presents is a Bob and Ray Comedy Spectacular—along with new music and stories from former Grass Roots and The Office cast member Creed Bratton! It would be a bit of déjà vu to list the many hits of The Grass Roots again—"Temptation Eyes," Midnight Confessions," Bella Linda," Live for Today" and so many others. After all, DWP has had two Grass Roots alumni stop by this year, namely Joel Larson and Dennis Provisor. But singer/songwriter/actor/comic Creed Bratton has many new stories to tell, both about his life before and after his Grass Root hit making days. For example, not only has Creed been issuing solo albums since 2001, his acting career has included many appearances on episodic television, most famously as a fictionalized version of himself on The Office. Also this year, Creed's newest album, Tell Me About It, is an autobiographical concept record full of musical surprises. In an in-depth conversation with Wes Britton, Creed will go back to the glory days, explore his time on The Office, tell you about his adventures under Middle-Eastern sands, what a now legendary tablecloth had to do with his career, and what Tell Me About It is all about. Yep, we'll play two samples of Creed's new music for you! Unlike other comedy teams of their era, Bob and Ray didn't come to prominence through vaudeville or Hollywood circuits. Their wry, dry, deadpan and incongruous routines were born on radio, crafted for radio in the late 1940's, and were essentially unchanged when they began appearing on television in the 1950s. Many of their parodies played with broadcasting itself, mocking sports announcers, man on the street interviews, soap operas, and commercials. They were intentionally far from slick, often improvising and ad libbing their lines. Remember Wally Balou? The Slow Talkers of America? Did you know Cloris Leachman and Audrey Meadows worked on their shows? You can find out all about these stories in David Pollock's new Bob and Ray, Keener than Most Persons: The Backstayge Story of Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding. It's a biography of two of the greatest radio comedians of them all, whose career lasted an astonishing 44 years. In a lively conversation with Dave White, Pollock shares long unknown secrets of Bob and Ray, and, of course, we'll play some of those bits that have influenced everyone from Harry Shearer to David Letterman to, well, Mr. Dave White himself! So, the music and stories of Creed Bratton, the comedy and history of Bob and Ray will give you Variety with a capital V on the next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS, Tuesday, June 4 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php On Wed. June 5, the 90 minute show will be available as a podcast, mp3 download, from itunes, through TEVO and Sticher.com, or on the player at-- www.audioentertainment.org/dwp Keep up with entertainment news at the Dave White Presents Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dave-White-Presents/153177177306…

Southern Rock with Devon Allman, Summertime Blues with Blue Cheer on the Next "Dave White Presents"! Back in 1968, a power trio called Blue Cheer topped the charts with their interpretation of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues." Decades later, that band and their song have frequently been singled out as being predecessors to all things hard rock and heavy metal. This year, Blue Cheer Rocks Europe, recorded in 2008, is a new CD testament to how vital Blue Cheer remained until the 2009 death of its main motor, bassist and lead singer Dicke Peterson. At the time, the trio also included original drummer Paul Whaley and the group's longest running guitarist, Andrew "Duck" MacDonald. On Tues. May 21, Duck stops by DWP to talk about the legacy of Blue Cheer, his friendship with Dickie Peterson, fan responses over the years, and the importance of a little song that was a hit for Eddie Cochran, The Who, and Blue Cheer. We'll also play you a previously unreleased studio track that MacDonald calls the groups reply to "Summertime Blues," a rockabilly jumper you've likely never heard before! Yep, Devon Allman has quite a pedigree. His Dad is Gregg, his uncle was Duane. Last year, Devon made quite a splash as part of the blues/rock "Supergroup," Royal Southern Brotherhood. If you haven't checked them out, you're missing a seriously tight outfit. This year, Allman has been earning critical raves for his sizzlin' debut solo album, Turquoise. On his own terms, he's proving to be a triple threat as a soulful singer, fiery guitarist, and autobiographical songwriter. Learn all about it in an absorbing conversation Devon shares with Wes Britton delving deep into a bluesy family tradition, the origins of Royal Southern Brotherhood, and the stories behind the songs on Turquoise. Yep, we got two samples from Turquoise to demonstrate Devon has more than a pretty name! All this plus some (we promise) surprising predictably unpredictable humor on Tues., May 21 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php But if you miss the premiere broadcast, on Wed.

The Walking Dead, The Grateful Dead, and Maverick come together on the Next "Dave White Presents"! You know it's true—zombies are everywhere. Some call it the Zombie Renaissance, some the Zombie Apocalypse. Recent film titles include Zombie Strippers, Zombie Alligators, and Abraham Lincoln v. Zombies. Go online, and you can see Doctor Who's Karen Gillan doing parody ads for zombie hair and skin care. Much of the blame for all these legions of the undead goes to Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead graphic novels and monster hit TV series. No one knows more about all this than Jay Bonansinga, the author Kirkman tapped to team with him to write a trilogy of Walking Dead novels. On Tues. May 7, Jay joins Wes Britton to talk all things zombie, from working with Kirkman, to how his first two Woodberry novels were crafted, to why there's so much popular fascination with zombies, to clues as to what's coming next in the Kirkman universe. Speaking of hit TV shows, from 1957 to 1962, Maverick was a ratings king on Sunday nights. James Garner was Bret Maverick, Roger Moore was cousin Beau, and, very briefly, Robert Colbert was brother Brent. But only one Maverick was there from beginning to end, namely Jack Kelly as brother Bart. Beyond Maverick, as Linda Alexander, author of A Maverick Life: The Jack Kelly Story will tell you, Kelly was more than a female fans delight on the comic Western. For example, as a child star, Kelly worked with Mickey Rooney and Audie Murphey. He was in Forbidden Planet with Leslie Nielsen. For decades, he worked on nearly every episodic series on television. So Linda's conversation with Dave White should get you reaching for a deck of cards, get you singing the famous theme, and perhaps get you reading a copy of her highly-regarded biography as well! Then, back in the'60s, the Grateful Dead were in the thick of all things sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll. A key member of their entourage was the legendary Owsley "Bear" Stanley, the pioneering sound engineer who broke new ground in recording live music. Oh yea, he was equally famous for cooking the best LSD of the period. Someone who saw and experienced it all was Rhoney Gissen Stanley, author of the new Owsley and Me: My LSD Family. Rhoney was with Bear in the chemical lab and backstage at Monterey Pop, Woodstock, and Altamont. So we're traveling back in time to the epicenter of West Coast psychedelia with someone who looks back on it all with great affection. So zombies, hippies, and Mavericks come together on the next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS, Tuesday, May 7 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php But if you miss the premiere broadcast, on Wed.

We're beating the Skins with Canned Heat and the History of Drums on the Next Dave White Presents! Once upon a time, Canned Heat were not only the Kings of the Boogie" with hits like "On the Road Again" and "Let's Work Together," they were headline acts at festivals like Monterey Pop and Woodstock. In fact, "Going Up the Country," written and sung by Alan Wilson, became the unofficial theme song for Michael Wadleigh's Woodstock documentary. Ironically, guitarist and singer Wilson, known as the "Blind Owl," died on Sept. 3, 1970, just months away from the deaths of fellow Woodstock luminaries Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. Tragically, all three became members of the "27 Club," meaning musicians who died at that age including Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain, and Robert Johnson. On Tues. April 23, the longest continuing member of Canned Heat, drummer Adolfo "Fito" de la Parra, comes to DWP to remember the glory years of his band and discuss the brand new two CD set, The Blind Owl: a tribute to Alan Wilson. The new collection not only highlights the Heat's blues and psychedelic boogies, but Wilson's social commentary on albums like the legendary Future Blues as well. What was it like to work with, and impress, John Lee Hooker? What's Canned Heat up to now? Fito will tell you all about it. As it happens, Fito de la Parra isn't the only drummer beating away on the next DWP! Stickman, educator, and author Daniel Glass has some fascinating insights into his two-DVD set, The Century Project: 100 Years of American Music from Behind the Drums. The DVDs are a detailed and tasty history lesson about U.S. music from 1865 to 1965 showing how, as drums evolved, so did popular music as a whole. We promise, you won't have to be a drummer to be interested in the evolution of marching bands, ragtime, rockabilly, jazz, and rock and roll! We travel with Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich, Ringo Starr, and Glass himself as we also show how he brings punk to jazz in his own hot band, Royal Crown Revue! All this, plus some new, original comedy from Mr. Dave White himself comes your way Tuesday April 23 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php But if you miss the premiere broadcast, on Wed.

The April 9th Dave White Presents is Variety Entertainment with Hollywood, The Grass Roots, and New Old-Time Radio! James McEachin is one of those actors who's not exactly a household name. But one look at him and you'd recognize him from his many roles on Hawaii Five-O, All in the Family, Rockford Files, Mannix, Dragnet, and most famously as LT. Brock in the Perry Mason TV movies. He's also appeared in some high-profile feature films like Clint Eastwood's Play Misty For Me. MacEachin's multi-faceted career also includes being a novelist and award-winning champion of military veterans. (He's a decorated vet himself.) On Tues. April 9, James McEachin's insightful conversation with Dave White will entertain you with stories about John Wayne, Jack Lord, Clint Eastwood, Raymond Burr, Jack Webb, as well as his books and one-man play. You need more than that? Well, past listeners of DWP may recall our interview with Dennis Provisor, a keyboardist who became one of The Grass Roots in 1972. On our next program, we're joined by Joel Larson, the drummer who was a Grass Root at the very beginning, left the band, and then re-joined in '72. In fact, Joel was the only Grass Root to have played in the two very different official line-ups responsible for hits like "Midnight Confessions," "Temptation Eyes," "Let's Live for Today," "Sooner or Later" and so many more. But Joel goes beyond the hits to talk about Barry McGuire, the Mamas and Papas, and just how all those cars, vans, and motorbikes are chosen and available for television and film sets. But that's not all either! The next DWP is also going to keep you in Suspense! That's because KSAV.org is launching a new version of the Old-Time Radio classic that, well, to say more would be telling! If you're an OTR fan, this one's for you . . . All this and the usual unusual humor of Dave White Presents debuts Tuesday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php But if you miss the premiere broadcast, on Wed.

Scream Queen Dee Wallace (E.T., The Howling) and comic actress Geri Jewell (The Facts of Life, Deadwood) headline the March 26 Dave White Presents! Dee Wallace is best known for playing Elliott's Mom in E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial and being a "Scream Queen" in cult favorites like The Hills Have Eyes, The Howling, and Rob Zombie's reworking of Halloween. So far, she's had over 130 roles in TV and movies, including work in 85 films. And she shows no sign of stopping now! But that only scratches the surface of what this Renaissance Woman has been doing all these years! On the next DWP, Dee talks with Wes Britton about E.T., some of her other favorite movie parts, but also her books, radio shows, and the healing classes she teaches in person and online. So this is in interview that goes beyond entertainment to offer some wisdom as well! Speaking of wisdom, comic actress Geri Jewell has quite a bit of insight to share as well! Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at an early age, Geri became the first actress with a visible disability to have a regular role on television when she became part of the cast on The Facts of Life. Discovering celebrity was both a blessing and a curse, Geri spent many years working as a stand-up comic before returning to TV as Jewell in the HBO classic, Deadwood. We promise—you don't want to miss this one! In an extensive interview with Wes Britton, Geri talks about it all—her big break meeting Norman Lear, how she was eased out of Facts of Life, and how she shaped her own role on Deadwood. Hear how she was discovered playing "Home on the Range" on her father's organ during a funeral service, how she knocked Big Bird's head off, why Robert Goulet couldn't convince her Mom he really was Robert Goulet . . . Folks, the lady is funny! We'll mix these in-depth conversations with two very wise women with the usual unusual predictably unpredictable humor of DAVE WHITE PRESENTS, Tuesday, March 26, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org But if you miss the premiere broadcast, on Wed.

James Bond, Hawaii 5-O, Magic, and Comedy Songs on the Next Dave White Presents! 2002 was a banner year for actor Wil Yun Lee. For one thing, he starred as baddie Colonel Tan-Sun Moon in the 20th James Bond opus, Die Another Day. In the same year, People magazine named him one of the "50 Most Beautiful People." Five years later, People included him in their list of "The 15 Sexiest Men Alive." Along the way, Lee has been busy on both the small and large screens. He's had roles in Witchblade, Bionic Woman, Electra, and as a recurring character on Hawaii 5-O. He'll also be the Silver Samurai in the Upcoming The Wolverine. On Tuesday, March 12, Wil will join Wes Britton to talk about his career, especially what it was like to work on the 40th anniversary 007 film and how his role as Sang Min on Hawaii 5-O was shaped. In addition, he's the star of a new DVD release called The Four Assassins and we'll go behind the scenes of that thoughtful character study. Summing up the eight decades of magician and comedy songwriter Milt Larson's career is no easy task. As a teenager, he wrote comedy bits for Bob Barker's Truth or Consequences game show. Producer Ralph Edwards used Larson as the "distraction" for stars like Buster Keaton and Stan Laurel so they didn't know they were about to be profiled on This is Your Life. But it was with magic where Larson earned his claim to fame, eventually earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and being named one of the 100 Most Influential Individuals in Magic by Magic Magazine. Among other accomplishments, he co-founded the members only Magic Castle club which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. On top of all that, since the late '50s, Larson has written hundreds of comedy songs with Richard Sherman, half of the legendary Sherman brothers who wrote all those hits for Disney. In one of the liveliest conversations we've ever had, Milt will tell you all about the days of vaudeville, encounters with Cary Grant and Johnny Carson, his new memoir . . . in fact, trying to tell you what he'll talk about is a bit like trying to squeeze the Titanic into a shot glass. Oh, expect a generous sampling of the Sherman-Larson comic songs as well. All this, along with some new "predictably unpredictable" radio comedy debuts on the next Dave White Presents, Tuesday, March 12, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php As if by magic, on Wed.

The Ladies Take Over The Next Dave White Presents With Elizabeth Rohm (Law and Order), Martha Wash (The Weather Girls), and author Barbara Barnett talking House M.D.! Elizabeth Rohm is best known for her TV roles as Assistant D.A. Serena Southerlyn On Law and Order and as detective Kate Lockley on Angel. Her mother was a script-writer for Guiding Light, so it's appropriate Rohm's own career started with work on One Life to Live before her two seasons on Angel, four years on Law and order, and recent projects like The Client List and In the Dark. She's also an activist and author on her most important role of them all—Motherhood. Elizabeth is now trying her hand with comedy, starring in the upcoming The Whole Truth with Sean Patrick Flanery and Eric Roberts. She'll give you the inside story on the next DWP as well as share insights into her newest book, Object of My Conception. There's probably a lot you didn't know about the song, "It's Raining Men." The music was written by Paul Shaffer. Diana Ross, Donna Summer, Cher, and Barbara Streisand all turned it down before a duo called Two Tons O Fun were talked into recording it. And they changed their name to The Weather Girls specifically for the 1982 hit. One half of that duo, Martha Wash, comes to DWP to tell you how it all happened and how she and her partner, Izora Rhodes, laughed and laughed when they first heard the demo. But Martha has lots to say about the pair's previous work on the hits of Sylvester, her solo work with Black Box, and Top Ten singles like "Gonna Make You Sweat." Martha has a new album out called Something Good, and we have a great sample to play for you! In 2008, House M.D. was the most watched show in the world, seen in 66 countries. A Top Ten hit for three seasons in the U.S., critical praise included five Primetime Emmys, two Golden Globes, a Peabody, and nine People's Choice Awards. What made Hugh Laurie's portrayal of Dr. Gregory House, one of television's most misanthropic characters, must see TV? Barbara Barnett, author of Chasing Zebras: The Unofficial Guide to House, M.D., can tell you. Unlike many TV books, Chasing Zebras isn't a quick examination of the cast and production with an episode guide. Barbara gets into much more depth, analyzing the appeal of a drug-addicted genius and why we were fascinated by a man most of us wouldn't want to share dinner with. All this, and the usual unusual "predictably unpredictable" humor of Dave White Presents is coming Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php On Wed.

It's not often Dave White Presents showcases only one celebrity guest, but that's just what we're doing for our Special Ray Stevens Extravaganza next Tuesday, Feb. 12! "The Streak." "Gitarzan." "Ahab the Arab." "Harry the Hairy Ape." "Along Came Jones." "Everything is Beautiful." "Mr. Businessman." "Misty." "Mississippi Squirrel Revival." In 1957, Harold "Rags" Ragsdale signed his first recording contract thinking he might be the next doo-wop R&B hitmaker. But, under the name Ray Stevens, a song came out called "Jeremiah Peabody's Polyunsaturated Quick-Dissolving, Fast-Acting Pleasant-Tasting Green and Purple Pills." After that, the Grammy-winning multi-instrumentalist not only kept topping the charts with novelty, Adult Contemporary, and country hits, Ray Stevens became a producer and A&R man for the likes of Brenda Lee, Patti Page, Dusty Springfield, and Dolly Parton. On the next DWP, Ray shares an in-depth conversation with Wes Briton and not only talks about his musical history and legacy, but also his thoughts on the changing music business, especially his ongoing series of comic videos. To put it mildly, 78 year old Ray isn't slowing down! For example, there's his new 108 song The Encyclopedia of Recorded Comedy Music. And he has a brand-new television show, "Ray-ality TV." We'll get into all that and more—that's because DWP will also play the songs of Ray Stevens all through the 90 minute Tribute! But we got other hot features for you as well! For example, Dave White has fun with Steve Squires of Squires and Corrie Slot Machines who shares the history of slots, how they operate, and how the odds are formulated. He'll tell you some of the methods used to cheat, schemes to try to disguise the machines as non-gambling devices, and of course how to win playing slot machines. That alone is worth your price of admission . . . All this, and the usual unusual "predictably unpredictable" humor of DWP comes your way Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php But if you miss the premiere broadcast, on Wed.

The Grass Roots, The Buckinghams, and the Return of The Saint on the next Dave White Presents! "Let's Live for Today." "Midnight Confessions." "Temptation Eyes." "Wait a Million Years." "Sooner or Later." "Where Were You When I Needed you?" Between 1966 and 1972, The Grass Roots were a band that kept pumping out the hits. But did you know, after producer Lou Adler created the first group specifically to record the songs of P. F. Sloan and Steve Barri, that the entire band quit? Carrying on with the same name, a new line-up of The Grass Roots went on to sell 20 million records and entered the charts 21 times. On Tues. Jan. 29, second generation member Dennis Provisor (keyboards, vocals, and songwriter) stops by DWP to share his memories of life on the road and in the studio. How did his incarnation of The Grass Roots evolve from a folk/rock ensemble into a group with more horns and R&B sounds? We'll share some stories behind the hits and play some for you! "Kind of a Drag." "Hey Baby (They're Playing Our Song." "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy." "Susan." "Don't You Care?" Speaking of a string of hits, from 1966 to 1970, Chicago's The Buckinghams also helped put the brass/rock sound at the top of the charts. In fact, in 1967, Billboard Magazine said they were "the most listened to band in America." On the next DWP, founding member, Guitarist and vocalist Carl Giammarese talks with Wes Britton about the band's history—how they started out on local TV, how a famous producer helped shape their sound, why they broke up, and what they're doing now. Yep, Carl will tell you about where and when you can hear them in 2013! It was back in 1928 when British author Leslie Charteris published the first novel featuring Simon Templar, better known as The Saint. By the time of his death in 1993, Charteris had penned 19 full-length novels, 48 novelettes, and 95 short stories. That's his English language books, not counting his works in French. Then there are all the Saint stories written by other authors, the various Saint radio series (including one with Vincent Price), TV shows (most notably starring Roger Moore), and the films featuring actors like George Saunders and Val Kilmer. Now, he's back! On a recent visit to LA to check out the filming of a new Saint TV pilot, Ian Dickerson, Honorary Secretary of The Saint Club, graciously shared a few minutes to talk about the history of Simon Templar—his past, present and future. Who's the new Saint? When and where can we see him? Find out on the next Dave White Presents, Tues.

Blues with the son of Muddy Waters, Indy Pop with Big Dipper, and TV's First Responders on Dave White Presents! For Mud Morganfield, "Pop" was a "Hoochie Coochie Man" with a Mojo working pretty much all the time. Pop was, in fact, McKinley Morganfield, better known as the legendary Muddy Waters. On Tues. Jan. 15, Mud Morganfield comes to Dave White Presents and reveals that he's much more than a chip off the old block. While he shares many, many stories about "Pop," he's got his own blues to sing. Many of his original tunes are now on his highly-praised 2012 album, SON OF THE SEVENTH SON. Like past DWP guest John Lee Hooker, Jr., Mud is a latecomer to taking his place in the sun, but we think you'll get hooked on "Blues in My Shoes" and his hard-charging "Loco Motor"—two of the tracks we'll play on DWP! On the other end of the musical spectrum, between 1987 and 1992, Boston-based Indy rock band Big Dipper earned a lot of critical praise if not stratospheric album sales. In particular, their 1987 HEAVENS is regarded by many as one of the best Indy Pop albums of the era. In fact, when their entire back catalogue was released in 2008, the response was so spectacular that 3 Big Dipper alumni decided to hit the road and record some new music. Four years later, CRASHES ON THE PLATINUM PLANET is the happy result. On the next DWP, founding member Gary Waleik stops by to talk about all things Big Dipper from their jangly twin guitars, intricate harmonies, and extremely poetic lyrics written by three unique and quirky songwriters. We'll play two choice cuts including the rockin' "Guitar Named Desire: The Animated Sequel." Sound intriguing? Of all the heroes we've seen on TV over the years, you might not think firefighters, paramedics, EMTs, lifeguards, forest rangers, and the Coast Guard were all that popular. But as actual fireman Richard Yokley chronicles in his FIRST RESPONDERS OF TELEVISION, these professionals have been there from the beginning, not only in supporting roles in police and medical dramas, but in shows like RESCUE 8, EMERGENCY!, SAVED, and RESCUE ME. As Yokley tells Dave White, First Responders have been important in fictional shows and reality series all over the globe, and capturing what they do has been challenging and eye-opening for audiences and producers alike. Find out why on Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php On Wed. Jan. 16, the 90 minute show will be available anytime you like as a podcast, mp3 download, from itunes, through TEVO and Sticher.com, or on the player at-- www.audioentertainment.org/dwp Future guests include Carl Giammarese of the Buckinghams, Dennis Provisor from the Grass Roots, and Ian Dickerson from The Saint Club with hot news about a new Saint pilot being shot in LA even as we speak!

Celebrate New Year's with Marshall Crenshaw, Ian Fleming, and Blowing Up Casinos in Lake Tahoe on the next Dave White Presents! You probably know singer, songwriter, and guitarist Marshall Crenshaw best for his 1982 hit, "Someday, Someway." Did you know he played John Lennon in BEATLEMANIA, Buddy Holly in 1987's LA BAMBA, and that he wrote the title song for 2007's WALK HARD? Folks like Ronnie Spector, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Willis, Robert Gordon, and Bette Midler have all covered his songs. On Jan. 1, 2013, Marshall will share all these stories and more on the first DWP of the New Year! Yep, he has new music he wants you to hear, and we'll play you some samples. On Aug. 27, 1980, millionaire John Birges Sr. tried to extort $3 million from Harvey's Resort Hotel in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. To do this, Birges built one of the largest bombs the FBI had ever seen containing 1,000 pounds of dynamite. The bomb was the most complex improvised explosive device ever created, and a replica of it is still used in FBI training. In his truth-is-stranger-than-fiction memoir, BOMBING HARVEY, John Birges Jr tells how his Dad suckered his two sons into joining him in the plot. In a surprising interview with Dave White, Birges discusses how he got involved and what he did and felt during and after it all went down. Boom! If you hear the title, SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED: The Secret Files of I__ F______, Code Designate 17F and think it has something to do with the creator of 007, you're right! Author Aaron Cooley's very imaginative debut novel is where known history, speculative biography, and obvious literary invention meet. What did Ian Fleming do during World War II and what happened that might have inspired the character of James Bond? Some of Cooley's book includes some intriguing "maybes," some of what happens is simple entertaining playfulness. All of this rockin' and explosive entertainment comes your way on The next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS, Tuesday, Jan. 1 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php But if you miss the premiere broadcast, on Wed.

Celebrate Christmas with Creedence Clearwater Revival and Gary U.S. Bonds on the next Dave White Presents! "Proud Mary." "Suzie Q." "Bad Moon Rising." "Down on the Corner." "Lodi." "Born on the Bayou." "Have You Ever Seen Rain?" From 1967 to 1972, few bands matched the success of Creedence Clearwater Revival for riding high on the charts with so many influential songs. Then, few top groups broke up so publicly and so controversially with repercussions lasting to the present day. While many think CCR was essentially John Fogerty's band, Creedence Clearwater couldn't have been what it was without the bass of Stu Cook, rhythm guitar by Tom Fogerty, or the drums of Doug "Cosmo" Clifford. Since 1995, Cook and Clifford have been proving just that in Creedence Clearwater Revisited, a hot little band Clifford will tell you all about on the Tuesday, Dec. 18 DWP Christmas Special! In a lengthy interview with Wes Britton, Clifford goes way back to talk about the early years of the original CCR on the road and in the studio. He shares his feelings about the band's break-up and what fans can enjoy when they see Creedence Clearwater Revisited in concert, especially on the upcoming Rock Legends Cruise. We'll play two songs for you, including the new CCR's version of Chuck Berry's "Run, Rudolf, Run"! Speaking of rockin' Christmas music, no one can deliver a party better than Gary U.S. Bonds! Back in 1961, he delivered the goods when he topped the charts with his smash, Quarter to Three." Bonds went on to have nine Top 40 hits, including songs like "This Little Girl" with a little help from a gent named Bruce Springsteen. Now, Gary has a new album called CHRISTMAS IS ON!, and he means it! On the next DWP, he'll tell you how it came together and shares some classic and funny rock stories. Did you know he fired the Beatles as his back-up band as, at the time, they weren't very good? Did you know he didn't move around on stage until Sam Cooke slapped him around and told him to put on a better show? We'll get into those anecdotes and more and play two samples from CHRISTMAS IS ON!—including a new party tune featuring Danny G, the original sax-man from "Quarter to Three"! Of course, if it's Christmas on Dave White Presents, you gotta expect Dave's "predictably unpredictable" comedy and satire that'll warm your chestnuts and put bubbles in your eggnog including a brand new message of guidance from Dr. Ezekiel Hope. It all happens Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php But if you miss the premiere broadcast, we won't put coal in your stockings! On Wed. Dec. 19, the 90 minute spectacular will be available forever as a podcast, mp3 download, from itunes, through TEVO and Sticher.com, or on the player at-- www.audioentertainment.org/dwp Keep up with entertainment news at the Dave White Presents Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dave-White-Presents/153177177306 Hear you then—and Happy Holidays—all of them—from all of us at Dave White Presents!…

Get Wild With Tarzan and Jim Dandy on the Next Dave White Presents! In 1971, Black Oak Arkansas were pioneers of the Southern rock sound with songs like '"Hot and Nasty" and "Lord Have Mercy on My Soul." Featuring the growling lead vocals of Jim "Dandy" Mangrum, they had 10 chart-topping albums and a 1973 hit with their remake of "Jim Dandy to the Rescue." Jim Dandy and Black Oak are still at it! For example, come January, they're part of the "Rock Legends Cruise" along with folks like Paul Rodgers, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Foreigner, and Kansas. On Tues. Dec. 4, Jim Dandy tells you all about it on DWP, and it's a wild one, we promise! Speaking of wild, we got a double-dose of Tarzan for you to celebrate Lord Greystoke's 100th birthday! To begin, how's this for a book title—ME TARZAN, YOU TRAIN? You might remember Denny Miller as Duke Shannon on WAGON Train and his guest roles in over 200 series like HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL, THE RIFLEMAN, V, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, and GILLIGAN'S ISLAND. In 1959, he starred in TARZAN, THE APE MAN. He's now the "World's Oldest Living Tarzan," a member of the PTA—Past Tarzan Association! Denny is now also a personal trainer, hence the title of his new book. In a lively conversation with Dave White, Denny talks about Tarzan and how exercise without pain is what can keep you young and swinging in the trees. Speaking of good book titles, Tracy Griffin's TARZAN: THE CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION is just that—a colorful celebration of 100 years with the Lord of the Jungle. On the next DWP, Tracy tells you all about Tarzan in the Edgar Rice Burroughs books, on film, stage, radio, pulp magazines, and the comics. You'll love this book—chock-full of beautiful art and photos of all those screen Tarzans—like Denny Miller! All this and some new "predictably unpredictable" humor on the next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS swings your way Tuesday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org In case you're on safari that night, you can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php But if you miss the premiere broadcast, on Wed.

Dick Wagner talks Alice Cooper and Lou Reed in the Thanksgiving Feast Edition of Dave White Presents! The menu includes: Sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll. That's pretty much the story of guitarist/songwriter Dick Wagner. Back in the '60s, he met and played with idols like Little Richard, Roy Orbison, and BB King. After a stint with the Michigan band, Frost, Wagner came to national prominence as half of the guitar duo on Lou Reed's Rock and Roll Animal. That gig lead to his becoming an axeman and songwriting collaborator with Alice Cooper for four albums. His resume now includes playing with, writing for, or producing Billy Joel, Meatloaf, Tina Turner, Tim Curry, Kiss, Aerosmith, Peter Gabriel, and Air Supply. Songs he wrote or co-wrote include "Only Women Bleed," "Welcome to my Nightmare," and "Shine Silently" with past DWP guest, Nils Lofgren. Dick tells many of his stories in his new book, Not Only Women Bleed, Vignettes from the Heart of a Musician. He also shares some of them with you on the next DWP and we'll play you some new Alice Cooper and hot off the press Dick Wagner music we bet you haven't heard before . . . Now, since this is a Thanksgiving special, we thought we'd throw in some healthy news before you get to gobbling everything in sight! So Dave White chats with Dr. Matt Mumber, an oncologist at the Harbin Clinic in Rome, GA. They'll discuss his book, Sustainable Wellness, which is all about how to develop a more individual method to promote health and wellbeing rather than a one size fits all fad style regimen. For dessert, we'll explore the reasons old-fashioned vinyl albums are having such a revival. Andy Kamm, owner of the Record Connection in Ephrata, PA, reveals how records are not just for lovers of second-hand music anymore. Did you know that major and minor labels alike are putting out new releases on CD, as downloads, and on those old black grooves again? Why? And what is the annual Record Day all about? All this, and all the trimmings, will be on the next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS, Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org As always, you can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php But if you miss the premiere broadcast, on Wed.

Yes, Nov. 6 is Election Day. It's also your first (but not last) chance to hear the new "Dave White Presents" with new music from Keith Emerson and stories of a rock 'n roll pioneer! Reaching back to his ELP days, keyboard wizard Keith Emerson has just created something very different in prog rock history. Along with guitarist Marc Bonilla and orchestra conductor Terje Mikkelsen, Emerson has produced The Three Fates Project, a blending of rock and classical performances unlike anything you've heard before. The Three Fates Project includes new versions of "Tarkus," "Fanfare for the Common Man," and "The Endless Enigma Suite" along with new music produced in ways Emerson, Lake, and Palmer couldn't do all those years ago. DWP gets really in depth with The Three Fates as we don't just talk with Keith about his new album. Wes Britton also co-interviews Bonilla and Mikkelsen as they describe the challenges of integrating rock instruments into a 70 piece orchestra. Sound intriguing? How about a sample from the album especially edited for DWP? What do Carole King, Bobby Darin, Neil Diamond, Neil Sedaka, The Monkees, and The Archies have in common? Don Kirshner. Back in 1958, Don Kirshner had a bright but simple idea: teenage rock and roll fans didn’t want the music of their parents and grandparents. They wanted hits written by their contemporaries. So, co-founding Aldon Music in New York, Kirshner hired songwriters Gerry Goffin and Carole King, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield, and Jack Keller. For its five year run, Aldon was responsible for over 200 hits, and that's no small feat. Rich Podolsky, author of Don Kirshner - The Man with the Golden Ear: How He Changed the Face of Rock and Roll, tells the full story in his book and shares many of the tales on DWP. Go inside the studio and learn how "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", "Up on the Roof", "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do", "I Love How You Love Me," and "Sugar Sugar" came to be. To spice things up, we'll feature some brand new music from Mickey Dolenz—a country re-make of "I'm a Believer." The next "DAVE WHITE PRESENTS" will premiere during election returns on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org But you can be sure not to miss the broadcast by pre-recording the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php Then, on Wed.

Les Paul, Humphrey Bogart, and Hot New Music on the Next "Dave White Presents"! Keith Richards, Steve Miller, Jose Feliciano, Billy Gibbons, and Slash are among the performers who've joined forces with rhythm guitarist Lou Pallo to celebrate Les Paul, the man who invented the electric guitar, pioneered recording technology, and left an astonishing legacy of music that began in 1928. On Tues. Oct. 23, Lou Pallo stops by online radio's "Dave White Presents" to talk about THANK YOU LES, a 21 song salute that captures the spirit and flavor of the music Les Paul loved. Pallo knows his stuff as he worked with Paul for over 26 years when the two performed together Monday nights at New York’s Fat Tuesday’s and the Iridium on Broadway until Paul’s death in 2009. Pallo talks about the history and contributions of Paul, the influence he had on generations of guitarists, and what you can hear on the Grammy nominated THANK YOU LES. We'll play two samples, and one features Ventures guitarist Nokie Edwards, himself a former guest on DWP! One of Dave White's favorite actors is Humphrey Bogart, so he was naturally delighted to meet a gent who actually worked with him! That's Eli Rill, author of the new BOGIE: THE FINAL CHAPTER. That critically praised memoir discusses Rill's time as Bogart's drama coach for THE HARDER THEY FALL (1956), Bogie's last film noir before his death in 1957. All the reviews—and from some notable folks—praise the book's warmth, humanity, and revealing portrait of one of the silver screen's biggest icons. If you're into classic movies, here's a classic conversation. But never let it be said DWP is stuck in the past! We also get into some new music from the new duo, Stephen Kalinich and Jon Tiven. Their two CD set is SHORTCUTS TO INFINITY, a set of "straight" rock 'n roll numbers, and SYMPTOMOLOGY, in which the two become the unrestrained Jack Hashtag and Reverend Stevie Nobody. Hmm. Lyricist and harmony vocalist Kalinich is perhaps best known for his work with Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys and songwriter P. F. Sloan. Multi-instrumentalist and lead vocalist Tiven cut his teeth working with the likes of Don Covay, Arthur Alexander, and Wilson Pickett. It was Phil Sloan who put them together, and you can hear what happened next when John Tiven talks about one of the most interesting debuts of 2012 when John visits DWP. All this, not to mention some musical jabs at politicians, will be featured on the next "DAVE WHITE PRESENTS", Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show at Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php But if you miss the premiere broadcast, on Wed.

David Peel Remembers John Lennon and Dave White Explores Early TV on the Next "Dave White Presents"! Back in 1971, John Lennon and Yoko Ono met a street musician named David Peel. Lennon was so impressed that he proclaimed Peel a genius and promptly signed him to Apple Records. 40 plus years later, Peel is still at his hippie tongue-in-cheek best. You can hear what he's been doing all this time on a new collection called Anthology from the good folks at GRA Records. On Tuesday, Oct. 9, you'll also hear stories of the old days including a clip of Lennon describing his first encounters with Peel followed by Wes Briton's in-depth conversation with the master of street theatre himself. Yep, we'll play you two musical samples including Peel's most famous and controversial song, "The Pope Smokes Dope." But the next DWP is mostly all about early TV in two interviews conducted by the Ed Sullivan of online radio, Mr. Dave White! Do you remember live television shows like Studio One, Robert Montgomery Presents, Kraft Television Theatre, or Captain Video? Wright King does as he was one of the New York actors who worked in all those series where any flubs were broadcast live all over the nation! He shared many of his stories with co-author Sandy Grabman in their book, No Retakes! Actors and Actresses Remember the Era of Live Television. King and Grabman join Dave White for a live conversation discussing their book that will take you back to the 1950s when the screens were black-and-white and viewers were lucky to have two channels to choose from . . . Speaking of the '50s, "Chicago Bill" Hansen returns to DWP to discuss a new DVD set called 50s TV Classics. It's an amazing collection of early television shows including Red Skelton, Milton Berle, Bob Hope, Dinah Shore, Ed Wynn, Edgar Bergan, Death Valley Days, game shows, Lawrence Welk . . . with guest stars like the Three Stooges, Boris Karloff, Mickey Rooney, and even Ed Sullivan doing a comic monologue!

The Sept. 25 Dave White Presents is a Musical Trifecta with Strawberry Alarm Clock, Renaissance, and John Lee Hooker, Jr.! It’s been a long time since we had a member of Strawberry Alarm Clock on the show. Back in Nov. 2009, keyboardist Mark Wietz shared the history of SAC and told the story behind their biggest hit, “Incense and Peppermints.” It’s been even longer since SAC put out a new studio album—40 years in fact. Now, bassist, rhythm guitarist, and songwriter George Bunnell stops by DWP to take you inside WAKE UP WHERE YOU ARE, a new time capsule of the psychedelic ‘60s. It’s an album performed by a band of, with one exception, original members of the group that rode the charts in 1967 and 1968. What took so long to put out new music? Did you know Lynard Skynard’s Ed King was an original member of SAC? Yes, we have stories for you . . . In 1969, two former Yardbirds didn’t go the hard-rock directions of other alumni like Clapton, Page, and Beck. Instead, Keith Relf and Jim McCarty founded Renaissance, a quintet fusing classical and folk traditions. By 1971, the formula remained the same but the players had changed, including a new lead vocalist named Annie Haslam. As Annie shares on the next DWP, the heyday for Renaissance was the mid to late ‘70s with a string of popular albums including TURN OF THE CARDS, SCHEHERAZADE AND OTHER STORIES, and LIVE AT CARNEGIE HALL. After the group disbanded in the early ‘80s, Haslam went on to do solo work. Then an old friend called to ask—why don’t we do it again? On September 23, 2011, the new Renaissance performed at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, Pennsylvania. That’s the concert captured on two CDs and one DVD called TURN OF THE CARDS AND SCHEHERAZADE AND OTHER STORIES LIVE 2011. That’s a lot of music and Annie has lots of insights into the old Renaissance, the new incarnation, and what you can expect on this very special Collector’s Edition. You couldn’t get into a better blues school than growing up as the namesake of the legendary King of the Boogie, John Lee Hooker. After he started performing on Detroit radio at the age of eight and trying his hand in local clubs, John Lee Jr. appeared with dad on albums like LIVE IN SOLEDAD PRISON in 1972. Then, the younger Hooker took a wrong turn and returned to Soledad—as an inmate. At the age of 52, Junior came into his own with the award-winning 2004 release, BLUES WITH A VENGEANCE. He’s been consistently winning over critics and fans ever since, especially with his hot new ALL HOOKED UP. It’s old fashioned blues but with very modern, autobiographical stories. Wait till you hear “Dear John” and how it became Hooker’s second blues cartoon.…

Before hitting the big-time in the 1970’s with Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, drummer Carl Palmer played with “The Crazy World of Arthur Brown,” a pioneering act in rock theatrics. After ELP, Palmer was a founding member of the super-group Asia, an ensemble born in the disintegration of two Prog Rock bands, ELP and Yes. In 1982, Palmer played on hits like “Heat of the Moment” and “Only Time Will Tell.” After shake-ups and break-ups, the original Asia reformed in 2006 and, this year, released XXX, an album celebrating their 30 year anniversary. Had history taken a slightly different turn, this reunion would have included a guitarist named Trevor Rabin. For his part, South African-born Trevor Rabin has worked with the likes of Seal, Michael Jackson, Manfred Mann, Tina Turner, Bob Dylan, and Paul Rodgers. He’s best known for his award-winning tenure with yes as guitarist, singer, and songwriter (“Owner of a Lonely Heart”). He’s composed film scores for Armageddon, Remember the Titans,National Treasure, Get Smart, and The Sorcerer's Apprentice. This year, Jacaranda became Rabin’s first solo album since 1989, an astonishing display of guitar and keyboard virtuosity. Is it rock, jazz, bluegrass, all of the above? Bboth Carl Palmer and Trevor Rabin will be sharing new music and talking about their careers with Wes Britton on this latest program. Of course, DWP is known for variety entertainment, so included in this blockbuster edition will be a discussion of a little known 1950s TV crime drama called Federal Men. It has just been released on DVD so learn what it's about and how to obtain it. It all previews Tuesday Sept. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org…

The 4th Year Anniversary of “Dave White Presents” will be a Comedy Spectacular with The Simpsons, Spinal Tap, Jack Benny, Cheers, Frazier and M*A*S*H—For Starters! Yep, “Dave White Presents” debuted on Tues. Aug. 28, 2008! So it’s more than appropriate we celebrate our fourth year next Tuesday, August 28, 2012 on KSAV.org. We decided to offer a comedy special to honor the occasion with two very special guests! First, Harry Shearer’s show biz career began at the age of 7 when he joined the cast of the Jack Benny radio show. He hung around with folks like voice actor Mel Blanc, appeared in the 1953 Abbott and Costello Go To Mars, starred in the pilot for Leave It To Beaver, and wrote for Saturday Night Live. Then he starred in projects like Spinal Tap, A Mighty Wind, his PBS series Le Show, and, of course, he’s the voice of all those characters on The Simpsons. Next Monday, Harry’s new comedy music album, Can’t Take a Hint, is coming out. He’ll be discussing that album as well as his lengthy career with Wes Britton on our very special anniversary show! We’ll really get into his new satirical tunes featuring folks like Dr. John and Jeff “Skunk” Baxter. Yep, we’ll debut three samples from the hot off the press disc . . . Before he became a comedy scriptwriter for shows like Cheers, Frazier, and M*A*S*H, Ken Levine was a typical teenager growing up during the ‘60s. Back then, he thought Love-Ins were great picnics where folks brought pot instead of potato salad. He didn’t watch sitcoms with Patty Duke, Elizabeth Montgomery, or Barbara Eden to laugh—he watched them to, ah, do what young single guys do when . . . Oh, he also worked in a record store where he had to keep tossing out a stoned Neil Young. Ken shares such stories in his new memoir, The Me Generation . . . By Me (Growing Up in the ‘60s). On our next DWP, Ken discusses that very funny book with Mr. Dave White himself! They’ll get into the influence of radio on his generation and the humor of being a Baby Boomer looking back on those crazy times. How did Levine’s formative years influence the scripts of some of the most successful hits in TV history? All this, plus some “predictably unpredictable” anniversary surprises will debut on a very special edition of “DAVE WHITE PRESENTS,” Tuesday, Aug. 28, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org…

“Dave White Presents”--The Beatles. Bowie. Elton. Lou Reed. Supertramp. Duran Duran. While just a teenager in London, Ken Scott went to work at EMI Studios in hopes of becoming a recording engineer. In short order, not only did that dream come true, he became one of only five engineers to work with The Beatles. After helping mix tracks for Magical Mystery Tour and the White Album, Ken moved over to the producer’s chair to work with John, George, and Ringo on their solo projects as well as Bowie, Elton, Jeff Beck, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Supertramp, The Tubes, Duran Duran, Missing Persons . . . This year, the now legendary Ken Scott published his memories of his work in the studio in Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust: Off-the-record with The Beatles, Bowie, Elton, and so much more. It’s quite a book for any music fan, and on Tuesday, Aug. 14, Ken shares many of his stories and anecdotes on online radio’s “Dave White Presents.” In a lengthy and lively conversation with Wes Britton, Scott traces his career, takes you behind the scenes of many of the most important hits and albums in rock, and describes some special and poignant moments he shared with the stars. Now, this is seriously cool: for DWP, Scott created an exclusive mash-up of one song he produced for both Lou Reed and Duran Duran. You’ll have to join us to find out what it is—you won’t hear it anywhere else! What was the TV series that launched the career of Michael Douglas? It was The Streets of San Francisco that ran on ABC from 1972 to 1978. Co-starring veteran actor Karl Malden, the show was a police drama filmed on location and remained popular until Douglas left the series to do movies in 1977. Jim Rosin, author of a new book on the show, tells Dave White the nitty-gritty of how The Streets of San Francisco was a study in getting the details right. When you’re filming in the actual streets of your show’s title, you get authenticity but also a set of problems you don’t have on the studio lot or out on some remote location. We’ve got some funny stories for you, including a certain car crash that started it all . . . So come with us behind the scenes in the recording of some of the greatest music of all time and learn about making television history from a different angle on the next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS,…

Edgar Winter, David Freiberg, Linda Imperial, and Maverick headline the next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS! In 1970, Texas rocker Edgar Winter’s debut album, ENTRANCE, took the music world by storm. Then, after two successful albums with White Trash, The Edgar Winter Group topped the charts with monster hits like “Frankenstein” and Free Ride.” Edgar has been rocking the planet ever since. In 2012, for example, Edgar will be touring the U.S. in the Rock and Blues Fest along with his brother Johnny, Rick Derringer, Mountain’s Leslie West, and Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown. On Tuesday, July 31, Edgar Winter joins Wes Britton on online radio’s DAVE WHITE PRESENTS to talk about a lifetime of music from his formative years in Beaumont, Texas to the creation of his most famous bands to what will be happening in the Rock and Blues fest. Expect the unexpected—including a very rare treat from songwriter Dan Hartman’s first band, The Legends, that led to Edgar hiring the composer of “Free Ride.” We go behind the scenes with Edgar in the studio and tell you how songs like “Frankenstein” came to be . . . Back in the ‘60s, David Freiberg was a founding member of Quicksilver Messenger Service before signing up with Jefferson Airplane and then Jefferson Starship. These days, he’s also heavily involved in his wife’s new group, The Linda Imperial Band. That’s also the name of Linda’s hot new album which also features guitarist Peter Harris (The Jerry Garcia Band) and keyboardist David Kaffinetti, better known as Viv Savage from Spinal Tap. The rhythm section includes Drummer Doug Freedman (Iron Butterfly) and Steve Valverde on bass. For our next blockbuster broadcast, DAVE WHITE PRESENTS is delighted to offer a co-interview with both David and Linda. We’ll also play you two tracks that, we promise, will take you back to the ‘60s San Francisco sound. Think Quicksilver with a ballsy, bluesy lady singer . . . Of course, DWP always puts the capital V in Variety, and the next show is no exception! This time around, Dave White reunites with an old colleague, TV CONFIDENTIAL host Ed Robertson. Ed has just published MAVERICK: LEGEND OF THE WEST so you know who we’ll be discussing—James Garner, Jack Kelley, Roger Moore . . .…

After musician Davy Jones left us on February 29, 2012, there was no shortage of tributes and reminiscences honoring the ex-Monkee best known for his days singing and playing with Mickey, Mike, and Peter. But what about his life and music after the Monkees? On Tues. July 17, online radio’s “Dave White Presents” will air a very special look into what David Thomas Jones was up to during his final decades. We’ll offer perspectives you’ve likely not heard before. For example, from 1992 to 2012, musician/producer Johnny Blair was Davy Jones musical partner, collaborator, friend, buddy, and brother. They worked together in the studio, on the road, and hung around together getting into, ah, shall we say rock and roll trouble? Johnny shares some of his very affectionate memories on DWP, talks about Davy’s neglected CDs released over the past few decades, and, of course, we’ll play some samples of their rare or out—of-print recordings together. What was Davy Jones’ favorite place on earth? Believe it or not, it was a small, rural Pennsylvania town called Beavertown. There, Davy was free to ride his beloved horses around town and shop in Giant as just one of the neighbors. Someone who got to know Davy very well was Beavertown’s Mayor, Cloyd “Bill” Wagner. In a surprising conversation with Wes Britton, Mayor Wagner talks about what Davy was like as a resident of Beavertown—not always the most responsible of citizens—and what Davy desired for the future. For example, it was in Beavertown where Davy planned to build his museum to display all his Monkee artifacts. As you’ll hear, the community and Davy’s children hope to fulfill Davy’s wishes. So the next DWP not only looks into the life of Davy Jones, we’ll be sharing news about future plans to keep his legacy alive. And, for this very special tribute, we’ll play as much of Davy’s music as we can squeeze in. But we have yet one more feature to tickle your funnybone— On a previous DWP, Josh Mills, step-son of the late, great Ernie Kovacs, stopped by to share what the Kovacs Estate had in store for his fans in 2012. One of the new releases is an audio CD of Percy Dovetonsils, a strange Kovacs character who read comic poetry on television in the 1950s. Never heard it before? We’ll offer a sample and Josh will tell you how to find a copy for yourself.…

Celebrate July 4th with Ed Asner, Paul Thorn, and Reincarnation on the next “Dave White Presents”! Yep, Ed Asner played Lou Grant in two rather famous series from 1970 to 1982. Before that, he guest-starred in shows like Mission: Impossible, The Wild Wild West, and even The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. He appeared in both the original and the remake of Hawaii 5-O. He was in Roots, Rich Man, Poor Man, and was the voice of Carl Fredricksen in 2009’s Up. This month, two independent films Ed starred in last year are coming out on DVD, Elephant Sighs and Identical. If you seek entertainment that’s character-driven with scripts with meaning, Ed shares why these are two films you shouldn’t miss. The witty Mr. Asner also tells Wes Britton funny stories about his TV past. For example, in 1987 he was Principal Joe Danzig in the short-lived high-school drama, The Bronx Zoo. He says as soon as the title was revealed, the NY school system complained their students were being compared to animals. In short order, the actual Bronx Zoo complained their animals were being compared to unruly students. When Wes asked Ed if he kept up with the cast of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Ed quipped he is spending a lot of time with Ted. That’s the sort of humor you can hear all through the conversation, and wit is also part of Wes’s interview with musician Paul Thorn. Paul is a gravelly voiced blues performer who just released What the Hell is Goin’ On, an album named after a song by a DWP alum, Elvin Bishop. The CD is Paul and his Southern roots band doing songs by some of Thorn’s inspirations, like Ray Wylie Hubbard’s down and dirty “Snake Farm.” A snake farm might not sound friendly, but what if a brothel is hiding behind it? What happens when a pot-head meets a red-neck alki Klan member? Find out in Wild Bill Emerson’s ironic “Bull Mountain Bridge.” In between these two tracks, you should enjoy Paul Thorn’s breed of story-telling as he takes time out from his current tour to celebrate the holidays with you. Now, DWP has talked with and about many figures from the past during our 100 plus broadcasts so far. But perhaps we’ve never gone so far back in time as with author Roy Stemman. His The Big Book of Reincarnation: Examining the Evidence That We Have All Lived Before reveals the results of a search from a “skeptical believer.” Odds are this interview will be full of surprises. Perhaps you too were a celebrity in a past life, signed the Declaration of Independence, or even wrote all of Shakespeare’s plays . . .…

What Makes Comedy Funny, Star Trek, and a Mysterious Island Take Over the Next “Dave White Presents”! So, what’s so funny? And why is it funny? Comedy writer David Misch can tell you. For 35 years, he’s written comedy for shows like MORK AND MINDY, SNL, DUCKMAN, and POLICE SQUAD. According to his bio, “He is also a playwright, songwriter, blogger, and recovering stand-up comic.” For the USC School of Creative Arts, he teaches a class called “What’s So Funny: A Survey of American Comedy from Ben Franklin to Ben Stiller.” Now, David is the author of FUNNY: THE BOOK. EVERYTHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT COMEDY. Everything? Hmm. Well, he’ll tell you all about it when he tops off his career by appearing on--where else?—the next DWP! Speaking of everything you need to know, is there anything left to say about why STAR TREK became a phenomena? Author Mark Clark thinks so. His STAR TREK FAQ: EVERYTHING LEFT TO KNOW ABOUT THE FIRST VOYAGES OF THE STARSHIP ENTERPRISE does travel where many books have gone before, but Mark unearthed surprises even for the most devoted of fans. For example, did you know Captain Kirk never said “Beam me up, Scotty”? Match your Trek knowledge with Mark as he has a lively and in-depth conversation with Wes Britton about why we need one more literary voyage with the Great Bird of the Galaxy! Speaking of traveling in time and space, on Sat. Feb. 11, the SyFy Channel aired a new version of JULES VERNE’S MYSTERIOUS ISLAND. It’s the story of four Civil War POWs who escape from a Confederate prison in a hot air balloon. They float into the Bermuda Triangle where they crash onto a strange island. There, they meet two sisters from the 21st Century, encounter weird nocturnal monsters, not to mention the famous Captain Nemo. Now, the TV movie is available as a DVD and actor Lochlyn Munro, who played Captain Cyrus Harding, takes you behind the scenes.…

Do the “Time Warp” when Marley’s Ghost and the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW headline the next “Dave White Presents”! For 25 years, Marley’s Ghost has been a roots band playing bagpipes, blues, reggae, country and folk. Their 10th album, JUBILEE, has just been released, and celebration is the right word! For one thing, JUBILEE was produced by 81 year old Cowboy Jack Clement. He worked with Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Roy Orbison and Carl Perkins back at Sun Records. In fact Clemen was the guy who told Jerry Lee Lewis to come back with something rock ‘n roll. So credit Clement with inspiring “Great Balls of Fire.” On Tuesday June 5, singer and multi-instrumentalist Dan Wheatman will tell you other stories about JUBILEE including the other heavy-hitters who joined in the fun including Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Marty Stuart. Wheatman will get inside the two clever songs we’ll play for you including one co-written by Levon Helm about a cotton farmer who, ah, had to plant an alternate crop. “Hank and Audrey” is all about the wild relationship between Hank and Audrey Williams. Wild is the right word, alright . . . Speaking of wild, why is THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW such a phenomena? Forty years after its debut, it’s still the longest running movie being shown in theatres, usually at those famous midnight matinees. Why does it inspire grown men to dress up in fish-net stockings and prompt viewers to throw food at the screen? Dave Thompson, author of a new ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW history, has some ideas about the whys of RHPS along with many stories behind the production. Did you know it all started when Richard O'Brien wrote the play because he wasn’t permitted to play Herod as Elvis in a production of Jesus Christ Superstar? Did you know there have been 118 “Original Cast” soundtrack recordings from countries as diverse as Peru, Iceland, the Philippines, Panama, and Germany? Thompson covers it all, including the "The Rocky Horror Picture Show Audience Participation Survival Kit" which lists everything you must bring to any screening. On top of all that, Dave White chats with a new KSAV host named Mark Silverman. His upcoming show is called “Talking Time Share.” What is it all about? Find out Tuesday, June 5 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org You can pre-record the show with Digital Audio Recording (DAR)-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php But if you miss the premiere broadcast, fear not!

Bernie Kopell Helps DAVE WHITE PRESENTS Go Ape For Our 100th Broadcast! He was Siegfried on GET SMART. He was Doc on THE LOVE BOAT. Would you believe—he was also the voice of Baron Von Butcher on LANCELOT LINK, SECRET CHIMP? On Tuesday, May 22, Bernie Kopell headlines DWP to showcase the new DVD collector’s edition of LANCELOT LINK, SECRET CHIMP. LANCELOT LINK was a spy parody that ran on Saturday mornings on ABC from 1970 to 1972. Very much in the spirit of GET SMART, live chimpanzees from A.P.E. (Agency to Prevent Evil) battled Von Butcher’s C.H.U.M.P. (Criminal Headquarters for Underworld Master Plan) in between performing rock songs as the Evolution Revolution. In a very lively and laugh-filled conversation with Wes Britton, Bernie discusses everything A.P.E. and talks about how proceeds from the DVD will help the actual Lance Link who’s alive and well and retired at the Wildlife Way Station in LA! Bernie also talks about working in series television in the ‘60s, his role as Siegfried, his memories of his friend Don Adams, and, of course, many, many stories about his nine years on THE LOVE BOAT. Just as LANCELOT LINK was going off the air, a new blues rock band was hitting the road, the Washington D.C. based The Nighthawks. Forty years later, harp player Mark Wenner and his hard-driving group are still at it with a 40th anniversary collection called DAMN GOOD TIME! Think Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran, Jimmy Reed, and Willie Dixon all jamming together. That’s what The Nighthawks would call a hot gig, and Mark will tell you his rockin’ tales on the next DWP. Naturally, we’ll heat up the joint with two samples from the album! For 100 blockbuster episodes, DAVE WHITE PRESENTS has offered Variety with a capital V over KSAV.org. For our anniversary show, we’re delighted to highlight another KSAV program that’s especially unique. It’s called THE HIGH STREET BROADCAST and brings back old time radio, but we’re not talking playing the old shows. Each hour, HSB offers their own zany character sketches, original and classic songs, and a half-hour serial. Just like the old days, they perform it all live on stage. Host/Writer/Director Devlin Conners will tell you what its all about and we think you’ll add HSB to your entertainment menu when DWP isn’t around with our own, well, some call it comedy— So that’s live chimps, GET SMART, THE LOVE BOAT, The Nighthawks, and the new/old time radio of THE HIGH STREET BROADCASTS all on a very special edition of DWp! It debuts Tuesday, May 22nd at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over— www.KSAV.org If you’d like to pre-record the monkeyshines, Digital Audio Recording (DAR) makes that easy-- http://www.dar.fm/faq.php On Wed.

We’re going behind the scenes in Hollywood and on the road with the Beat Generation on the next “Dave white Presents”! On April 23, the folks behind World Book Day called MAKE YOUR MOVIE: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE BUSINESS AND POLITICS OF FILMMAKING a new Film Bible. Author Barbara Freedman Doyle, with 20 years experience with studios like Tri-Star and Disney, knows what aspiring directors, writers, and producers need to know to get their projects off the ground the right way. But you don’t have to be inside show biz to be interested in how and why some movies are made and others not. So next Tuesday, May 8, Barbara’s conversation with Dave White will be one for all film buffs! The same is true of Dave’s interview with Sai Achath, author of HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES: BASIC THINGS YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW. What’s different about this collection of stories about 55 living actors is that each short bio is accompanied by a unique caricature by the author. In fact, Sai Achath is a well-known cartoonist, ventriloquist, and hand shadow artist. He’ll tell you all about these arcane arts with everything but pictures on DWP! Then, just in time for the May 23 release of Jack Kerouac’s ON THE ROAD starring Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, and Kristen Stewart, Wes Britton chats with Barry Gifford, co-author of the newly re-issued JACK’S BOOK: AN ORAL BIOGRAPHY OF JACK KEROUAC. When Barry’s book first came out in 1978, it became a classic and inspired many “oral histories” to follow. It’s never been out of print and remains an essential window into the world of Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, and their circle. Find out why—where else?--on the next edition of “Dave White Presents”!…

James Brown, Batman, Rick Nelson, and The Spiral Starecase feature on the next “Dave White Presents”! In January 1969, Pat Upton and The Spiral Starecase had a million-selling hit called “More Today Than Yesterday.” Back then, folks like Frank Sinatra and Jose Feliciano stopped by to see their act. A few years later, Pat had a meeting with Col. Tom Parker and ran into Rick Nelson. This led to Upton recording and touring with Nelson for three years. Then, after retiring from the road, Upton opened a nightclub in Guntersville, Alabama. It was there where Rick Nelson performed his final gig, with Upton on guitar one last time, before the tragic plane crash on New year’s Eve, 1985. On Tuesday, April 24, Upton remembers The Spiral Starecase and shares memories of Rick Nelson on DWP. We’ll play “More Today Than Yesterday” for you, as well as one hot Nelson/Upton rocker. Speaking of hot, did they get much hotter than James Brown? “The Hardest Working Man in Show Business” gave us unforgettable hits and decades of dynamic showmanship. He was no stranger to controversy, to put it mildly. No one knows more about the many facets of “Mr. Dynamite than author RJ Smith. His new THE ONE: THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF JAMES BROWN digs deep into Brown’s influences, rags-to-riches battles, and his importance in American music. For DWP, RJ shares highlights from his surprising biography and, of course, we’ll play some hot wax from “The One” himself. After his 1939 debut, Batman has also been very hot, a lucrative property in movie serials, on radio, and as the “Bright Knight of TV’s Adam West to the “Dark Knight” of Keaton, Bale, etc. On the next DWP, past guest Bruce Scivally returns, this time to talk about his hot off the press BILLION DOLLAR BATMAN. Believe us, it’s a book that belongs on everyone’s Bat-shelf. Why? Find out next Tuesday, April 24.

Since 1994, bluesman Guy Davis has been polishing his one-man audioplay called THE ADVENTURES OF FISHY WATERS: IN BED WITH THE BLUES. It’s now available as a double CD featuring Davis playing Waters, a train jumping hobo on the road back in the segregated South. It’s about half Delta blues songs, half Waters telling his stories and sharing hilarious tall tales in all manner of voices.

On the next DWP, we’ll not only play you some samples, Davis will share some of his whoppers with you. What happens when your son is falsely accused of murder and looking at life in prison? Georgia mother, Jackie Carpenter, knows first-hand this true-life story. In 2008, her son Jason apprehended thieves who’d been stealing copper from his work site.

The Ladies Rule When Melissa Manchester, Suzi Quatro, and author Tricia Goyer Guest on the Next “Dave White Presents”! “You Should Hear About How She Talks About You.” “Don’t Cry Out Loud.” “Through the Eyes of Love.” Since 1973, the elegant singer/songwriter Melissa Manchester has had more than her share of hits, Grammy nominations and wins, and has co-written songs with the likes of Carole Bayer Sager and Kenny Loggins. Fourteen of her most loved songs are collected on the new PLAYLIST: THE VERY BEST OF MELISSA MANCHESTER, and she’ll talk about this release with Wes Britton on the Tues. March 27 edition of DWP. She discusses her friendships with Barry Manilow, Bette Midler, learning about writing songs from Paul Simon, and being the only performer to ever sing two Academy Award nominated songs on the same night at the Oscar ceremonies. And she’ll share the stories behind two of her classics that we’ll play for you. The 1970s also saw the debut of another popular singer/songwriter, but Suzi Quatro came from the other side of the tracks. Before The Runaways, before The Go-Gos, Suzi was a rock pioneer. She belted out “The Wild One” playing her signature bass, clad in her signature leather, and became a major influence on every lady rocker to follow. Along the way, she starred as Leather Tuskadaro on HAPPY DAYS and—gasp—broke Alice Cooper’s nose! On the next DWP, Suzi will share these stories and go behind the scenes of her new 15th solo album, IN THE SPOTLIGHT. We’ll play two nuggets for you including “Singing with Angels” featuring Elvis’s original guitarist James Burton and The King’s own backing vocalists, The Jordanaires. Then, Dave White talks with award winning Tricia Goyer, author of the just published historical novel, BY THE LIGHT OF THE SILVERY MOON. Her 26th book is the story of a shipboard romance, a family reunion, hope and redemption—on the Titanic.…

Fans of Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company have some special treats coming this month! On Tues. March 13, Sony Legacy will release Big Brother and the Holding Company featuring Janis Joplin’s LIVE AT THE CAROUSEL BALLROOM. Recorded June 23, 1968 just two months before Janis left the band, the show was captured on tape by the legendary Owsley “Bear” Stanley using the most advanced technology of the time. Now digitally re-mastered from the original tapes, listeners can hear Big Brother and the Holding Company at the peak of their powers in a very memorable concert. Also on March 13, Big Brother guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Sam Andrew comes to “Dave White Presents” to discuss the concert and how the new release came to be. In an extensive 40 minute conversation with Wes Britton, Sam talks about what made the Carousel Ballroom such an interesting venue, just who this “Bear” was, and what it was like to be Janis Joplin’s musical partner. Why did Sam leave Big Brother to join Janis in her short-lived Kosmic Blues Band? What was Big Brother like after Janis left us and how did it come about that Sam joined Moby Grape in the 1990s? What else is coming for Big Brother fans? Of course, we’ll play you two samples from the Carousel gig. You’ve probably never heard “Call On Me” or “Piece Of My Heart” quite this way before—unless you were there on that June night in San Francisco.

Tippi Hedron, the SuperSeven, and the Son of Boris Badenov headline the next “Dave White Presents”! The Birds are Coming! That was the tagline for Alfred Hitchcock’s 1962 thriller introducing his newest blonde bombshell, Tippi Hedron. She starred alongside Sean Connery in another Hitchcock classic, Marni, before working with Marlon Brando and Sophia Loren in Charlie Chaplin’s 1969 A Countess From Hong Kong—becoming the only actress to ever work for both these esteemed British directors. On Tuesday February 28, Tippi Hedron comes to DWP and talks about a forthcoming BBC film about her legendary time with Hitchcock. It’s called “The Girl” and stars Sienna Miller as Hedron. What happened when these two actresses met to discuss the film and the script? How did Hitchcock and Chaplin compare as directors? What was Sean Connery like when he wasn’t playing 007? How does it feel to be Melanie Griffith’s Mom? We’ll answer all these questions and, of course, Tippi wants you to know about her current activism to pass a bill outlawing the domesticating of dangerous cats. Who is SuperSeven? Well, he’s the world's greatest masked superspy, an agent for the mysterious T.H.E.M. “The Adventures Of SuperSeven” is “an action packed, tongue in cheek homage to the spy films, TV shows and masked hero adventures of the 1960's and 1970's.” Find out more about this new series when Olivia Dunkley, who plays Sandra West, the hero’s reluctant partner, goes behind-the-scenes with Dave White. (Hmm, a double entendre there?) Who was the voice of Ludwig Von Drake, Boris Badenov, Morocco Mole, and the Little Green Sprout? That was the legendary voice actor, Paul Frees. Along with his colleague Mel Blanc, Freez was the “Man of a Thousand Voices” for films, television, and even rides and the “Haunted Mansion” at Disneyland. Now, his son Fred Frees has moved into the family business and is also providing voices for commercials and even doing some of the characters his Father created. He’s also helping BearManor Media publish some interesting audio projects he’ll share on, where else?—the next “Dave White Presents”!…

THE X-Files and Ernie Kovacs on the Feb. 14 Edition of Dave White Presents! For 9 seasons, from Sept. 10, 1993 to May 19, 2002, THE X-Files was a cultural phenomena. One reason was the cast of supporting players like William B. Davis who became a fan favorite playing “cigarette smoking man.” Of course, Davis enjoyed a long career before and after Scully and Muldar, beginning as a child star on Canadian radio. For DWP, he’ll share stories about his stage and film work in 3 countries and get behind the scenes of THE X-Files with some surprising new stories. And William will let you know what you’ll find in his lively new memoir, Where There's Smoke...: Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man. Before his premature death at age 42, TV pioneer Ernie Kovacs was known for his innovative, experimental breed of comedy. His visual gags and improvisation influenced folks like David Letterman, Craig Ferguson, George Carlin, and Rowan and Martin. He’s also remembered for his performances with his Tony-winning wife, Edie Adams. In a fascinating conversation with Dave White, Josh Mills (son of Adams) shares some very funny anecdotes about Kovacs and his Mom. Did you know they appeared on the very last Lucy/Desi Comedy Hour where Edie sang “The Last Time”—even though no one knew this was the end for that legendary couple? Josh also tells what you can find in the ongoing series of DVD and CD releases coming from the vaults of the Kovacs/Adams Estate. Into the blues? KSAV.org will shortly debut a new program of music called “Eight to the Bar.” Show host Les Tarr will stop by to let you know what he has planned and give a sample of what his program is all about. All this, and the “predictably unpredictable” comedy of DWP, comes your way Tues. Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over-- www.KSAV.org…

The Beach Boys, My Three Sons, and a Musical Mystery on the Next “Dave White Presents”! While never an official Beach Boy himself, past Dino, Desi, and Billy member Billy Hinsche was part of their touring outfit as keyboardist, guitarist, and backing vocalist from the 1970s through the 1990s. Billy became part of the extended Wilson family when his sister Annie married Carl Wilson in February 1966. Currently, he’s Al Jardine’s musical director. Who could know the Beach Boys better? On Tuesday, January 31, Billy Hinsche returns to online radio’s “Dave White Presents” to discuss his new DVD documentary, Carl Wilson—Then and Now. The film is an affectionate tribute to the late singer of hits like “Good Vibrations” and “God Only Knows.” Family members and fellow musicians remember Carl as the leader of the group when it was a touring unit and as a steadying force in a family struggling with rock and roll excesses. In his interview with Wes Britton, Billy shares what you can see and hear in his three-hour, two-disc film based on very exclusive and intimate insights into one of the greatest American bands of them all! “I spent my entire life playing nerds.” So says Barry Livingston, most famous for playing Ernie Douglas on My Three Sons. In a lively conversation with Dave White, Barry talks about being a child star and how he joined a successful show starring his older brother Stanley who played his older brother Chip in the series. But his career didn’t end there—he played on Room 222, The Streets of San Francisco, Police Woman, and most recently in Zodiac, Two and a Half Men, and Mad Men. His films include You Don't Mess with the Zohan and The Social Network. On DWP, he’ll share some great stories and tell you what’s in his 2011 memoir, The Importance of Being Ernie: From My Three Sons to Mad Men, a Hollywood Survivor Tells All! In the mid-70s, songwriter Eric Beam was a member of a Pittsburgh band called Felix Harp. Despite the fact the group released three albums, you never heard them because their record company never intended to sell them. Why not? One of Eric’s songs, “Shoes,” was re-recorded by singer Reparata after she left the Delrons. But, while climbing the charts and becoming an international hit, Polydor Records pulled it off the shelves. Why? To deepen the mystery, only last year did Eric learn their were four versions of his song recorded and released by bands in England, Germany, France, and Greece. We’ll dig into what happened, play you the Reparata classic and, for the first time anywhere, play you a medley of Eric’s song in three languages. All this comes your way Tuesday, January 31 at 7:30 Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over— www.KSAV.org Something New: You can now record your favorite online shows to play at your convenience! It’s called DAR, or Digital Audio Recording, and details are at: http://www.dar.fm/submit_user_search.php?user_search=dave white presents But if you miss the KSAV broadcast, fear not!

Rose Marie, Mitch Ryder, and Jules Verne on the next Dave White Presents! Yes, for five years, Rose Marie was Sally Rogers on THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW. But did you know the 88 year old singer/actress began her career in vaudeville as “Baby Rose Marie” back in 1926?

Did you know Jimi Hendrix wanted Mitch to join him in a new band? Did you know Mitch just published his candid memoir, DEVILS AND BLUE DRESSES: MY WILD RIDE AS A ROCK LEGEND? Or that he has a new album coming in Feb. called THE PROMISE produced by Don Was? We’ll play you two selections and share some inside stories about what Mitch will be doing in 2012.

We’re all Bozos on this bus. Everything you know is wrong! Firesign Theatre fans know these phrases well as they were titles of very popular comedy albums of the ‘60s and ‘70s. As founding member David Ossman shares with Wes Britton on the Dec. 6 edition of DWP, the Firesign Theatre is alive and well and still kicking! Their latest project is the Shakespeare parody, ANYTHINGE YOU WANT TO, which is both an audio and literary endeavor. David has so much to share about the Firesigns then and now that this will be a two-part conversation, making our December shows very special indeed!

Next Week’s “Dave White Presents” Serves Up Memories, Music, and Hope. For The Drifters, he was the lead voice on songs like “Save the Last Dance for Me," “This Magic Moment," and "I Count the Tears." On his own, Ben E.

When we say the stars come out for “Dave White Presents,” our next show really proves we mean it! On Tues. Oct. 25, DWP celebrates The Kingston Trio with founding member Bob Shane. Without question, this group was one of the most influential ensembles in music history. We’ll explore why. Bob, long noted for his humor, is also a great story teller with more anecdotes than we could squeeze into a half-hour conversation. This means you’ll hear 30 minutes of some lively, engaging, and informative music history and surprises. Did you know the author of “Tom Dooley” was Tom Dooley himself? Then, how about Clint Eastwood, Garrison Keillor, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow, Brad Paisley, Ricky Skaggs, and Jimmy Buffett? All these performers joined producer Carl Jackson for a superb 2 CD set called MARK TWAIN: WORDS AND MUSIC. It’s the story of Samuel Langhorne Clemens told in words by Eastwood, Keillor, and Buffett along with a batch of new songs from a ton of Nashville stars. Carl Jackson joins Wes Britton to share how this project came to be. We’ll feature some of the words and of course some choice music! We didn’t forget Hollywood as Dave White interviews PBS radio host Gene Arceri, author of BROOKLYN’S SCARLETT SUSAN HAYWARD: FIRE IN THE WIND. While she didn’t get the role of Ms. O’Hara in gone with the wind, there seems to have been a lot of Scarlett in an actress who went on to have multiple Academy Award nominations for playing troubled women. We’ll take you behind the scenes of a story that mixed the bitter with the sweet. All this debuts next Tues. Oct. 25 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over— www.KSAV.org On Wed.

It’s a Roots Music Fest when Maria Muldaur and Peter Daltry headline the next Dave White Presents! Back in the early 1970s, Maria Muldaur hit the charts with songs like “Midnight at the Oasis,” “Three Dollar Bill, “and “Don’t You Feel My Leg.” This fall, after a series of acoustic roots albums, she gets electric, down-and-dirty, and soulful with her “Red -Hot Bluesiana band” playing on her new album, STEADY LOVE. It’s red hot alright with a New Orleans feel , and Maria tells you the full story about her past, present, and what STEADY Love offers in this very lively conversation with Wes Britton. Across the trans-Atlantic pond, back in the late 1960s, Peter Daltry was the main motor in the British band Kaleidoscope, a group often confused with the California outfit with the same name. Since then, while Daltry hasn’t toured in over 39 years, he has been putting out a stream of self-produced masterpieces. His new release hints at what he’s been doing--King of Thieves: The Best of Peter Daltry Volume 2 includes songs inspired by Celtic folk music, other tracks draw from late-‘60s psychedelia. Some melodies are simple tunes performed on guitar and piano, some are very layered and experimental indeed. We’ll play you two samples and perhaps you’ll wonder why Peter Daltry didn’t get on your radar screen before. We bet he will be now. This edition of DWP will also include a batch of new comedy bits organized by Master of Ceremonies, Mr. Dave White himself! To say more would spoil the “predictably unpredictable” enjoyment you’ll hear Tues. oct. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over— www.KSAV.org For more on Maria Muldaur’s new STEADY LOVE, here is Wes Britton’s review at: http://www.bookpleasures.com/websitepublisher/articles/3947/1/Steady-Love-Reviewed-By-Dr-Wesley-Britton-of-Bookpleasurescom/Page1.html For more on Peter Daltry’s King of Thieves: The Best of Peter Daltry Volume 2, check out: http://www.bookpleasures.com/websitepublisher/articles/3984/1/King-of-Thieves-The-Best-of-Peter-Daltry-Volume-2-Reviewed-By-Dr-Wesley-Britton-of-Bookpleasurescom/Page1.html Keep up with entertainment news and announcements at the “Dave White Presents” Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dave-White-Presents/153177177306…

Lastly, COLUMBO co-creator William Link returns to DWP in the second part of his interview remembering his friend, Peter Falk. In this anecdote fest, Link talks about what happens when a TV star wants to try his hand at directing with very comic results. What did the two men share after the end of the series?

TV and Movie Nostalgia on Next Week’s “Dave White Presents”! On Tues. Sept. 13, the very gracious Patty Duke talks with Wes Britton about her life both on and off-screen beginning with her work as a child star. We go behind the scenes of THE PATTY DUKE SHOW, talk about her favorite TV movies, and her long-time involvement with THE MIRACLE WORKER. (She’s played both Helen Keller and Ann Sullivan and, this year, directed a stage production.) We also discuss the future—this fall, she’ll be seen in episodes of THE PROTECTOR and HAWAII 5-O and appear at the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention. Next, Dave White talks with Peter Ford, son of Glenn Ford and Eleanor Powell. Peter grew up knowing them all—his personal swimming coach was Johnny Weissmuller. Rock fans owe Peter a huge debt—for his father’s 1955 film, Blackboard jungle, Peter suggested “Rock Around the Clock” for the theme—ushering in the rock and roll revolution. (He had a minor hit of his own, “Blue Ribbons,” written by upcoming DWP guest Jackie Deshannon.) So Peter has many stories to tell about growing up in Hollywood in a very famous family. Finally, COLUMBO co-creator William Link returns to DWP, this time to remember his friend, Peter Falk who died this June. We’ll be celebrating Peter just three days before his birthday (Sept. 16, 1927) in part 1 of a two-part discussion of Falk on screen, off, his one attempt at directing television, and his notable achievements in art.…

When we began contacting old friends to join us for the 3rd Anniversary Special for “Dave White Presents,” we had no idea just how special the show would become! Back in Aug. 2008, our very first guest was 007 guitarist Vic Flick. Yep, the guy who played the original James Bond theme and performed on hit records for everyone from Peter and Gordon to Petula Clark to the soundtrack of A HARD DAY’S NIGHT. A few months later, DWP’s most popular guest to date talked with Wes Britton about his starring role in ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE—James Bond himself, George Lazenby. On Aug. 16, 2011, Vic Flick and George Lazenby will appear together for the first time anywhere on our anniversary show. It’s quite a ride! In fact, the conversation quickly becomes the “Vic Flick interviews George Lazenby” feature with these two gents swapping memories, anecdotes, stories and jokes. No Bond fan should miss this one! Another guest on our debut broadcast in 2008 was crime novelist Paul Bishop. He returned to DWP on our last show to plug his new co-starring role on the hit ABC series, TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN. But we also wanted him for this historic reunion, so he’s coming back again and will talk with Dave White about his latest thrillers. (TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN airs Tuesdays at 9:00 EST, right after DWP!) Still another DWP alum, Bill Mumy, will be joining us for the third time! Our first conversation covered it all—his role as Will Robinson on LOST IN SPACE, his work on BABYLON 5 and STAR TREK, his comedy music with Barnes and Barnes, and his then brand-new CD, CARNIVAL SKY. He later stopped by for one edition of “Britton’s Beat” to showcase his blues album, GLORIOUS IN DEFEAT. Well, he has new music to talk about once again, and it’s “real good stuff.” Find out why-- And, what would a DWP outing be without comedy music? Dave White brings back Tom Blackwell, a parody songwriter and co-founder of the FUMP (Funny Music Project). Tom has now recorded 500 parody tunes and currently is the mastermind of “Devo Spice.” Called "the red-headed stepson of Weird Al Yankovic and Eminem," Tom has been a popular contributor to Dr. Demento.…

On Tues. Aug 2, a new series from Jerry Bruckheimer will premiere on ABC called TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN. It’s “real people vs. real detectives” in which contestants are given a briefcase full of cash, time to hide it, and then are “arrested” by cops looking for the loot. If the detectives find the cash, they keep it. If they don’t, the “real people” do. Well, one of the stars is an old friend of DWP—police officer and crime novelist Paul Bishop. In fact, he talked about his books on our very first show back in Aug. 2008. This time around, we’ll do a two-parter with Paul—part 1 focusing on his acting debut which will air on ABC television immediately after the broadcast of DWP! Can’t be more up-to-the-minute than that— Then, Wes Britton talks with the legendary music producer Kim Fowley. Yep, the guy who produced “They’re Coming to Take Me Away” for Napoleon XIV and was the mastermind behind The Runaways—a story told in a 2010 biopic with Michael Shannon playing Fowley. This year, Fowley collaborated with ex-Byrds axeman John York to create a new type of “audiobook”—WEST COAST REVELATION. It’s a collection of driving folk/rock tunes by York and Fowley interspersed with conversations between the two about the glory days on the West Coast during the 1960s. We’ll play you two samples from a very hot disc for the summer— In 1951, after working with the likes of Abbott and Costello, actor Billie Gray co-starred in the SF classic, THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL. But he’s best known for playing “Bud” Anderson from 1954-1960 in 193 episodes of FATHER KNOWS BEST with Robert Young and Jane Wyatt. He kept working until it all ended—back in the days when a pot bust could end a career. For DWP, Bill talks about his times on the large and small screen and about his upcoming appearance (Sept. 22-24) at the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention where he’ll re-unite with FATHER KNOWS BEST co-star, Lauren Chapin. (Davy Jones, Patty Duke, and Karen Valentine will also be there.) Last but not least, we get into literature with Jack Salem, author of Pausing For a Backward Glance: A work of historical fiction. It’s a complex novel about a B-movie screenwriter in 1950 enthralled with French history before she’s hauled before the House Un-American Activities Committee in Hollywood.
