Love in the Air Plus Western Fare: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Join us this week for a look at classic TV couples and classic TV weddings on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, premiering Monday, Feb. 14 at 9pm ET, 6pm PT on Shokus Internet Radio, with additional airings Tuesday, Feb. 15 at 11:05pm ET, 8:05pm PT on Passionate World Radio, Friday, Feb. 18 at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,, and Saturday, Feb. 19 at 8pm PT and Sunday, Feb. 20 on KWDJ 1360-AM (Ridgecrest, CA).

Our guests this week include author
Wesley Hyatt, whose books on music and television history include The Billboard Book of Number One Adult Contemporary Hits, Short-Lived Television Shows and Emmy Award Winning Nighttime Television Shows.

From Jeannie’s wedding to Rhoda’s wedding, from the nuptials of Mr. Peepers to Chandler and Monica’s wedding on Friends, wedding episodes have been a prime time tradition since television virtually began. But does marrying off a character help a series, or hurt it? Find out when Wes joins us in our first hour.

Then, in our second hour, we’ll head out West and talk about the longtime appeal of television Westerns along with Douglas Brode, author of more than 30 books on popular culture include Shooting Stars of the Small Screen, an encyclopedic look at more than 450 actors who contributed significantly to TV Westerns over the past six decades.

Plus: excerpts from Ed’s 1993 interview with iconic Western film director Budd Boetticher (The Tall T, Decision at Sundown, Bullfighter and the Lady) in which he discusses his work with such legends as Robert Stack and James Garner.
