The life and career of Emmy Award-winning actor Peter Falk will be the subject of the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, premiering Monday, July 25 at 9pm ET, 6pm PT on Shokus Internet Radio, with additional airings throughout the week, including Tuesday, July 26 at 11:05pm ET, 8:05pm PT on Passionate World Radio, Friday, July 29 at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org, and Saturday, July 30 on KWDJ 1360-AM (Ridgecrest, CA).
Known to two generations of TV audiences throughout the world as rumpled L.A. police detective Lieutenant Columbo — a character he played in one form or another over the course of 35 years, from his original appearance on NBC in Prescription: Murder (1968) through his final appearance on ABC in Columbo Likes The Nightlife (2003) — Peter Falk passed away on June 23 at the age of 83.
Our guests this week as we remember Peter Falk will be William Link, co-creator and co-executive producer of Columbo, and Mark Dawidziak, author of The Columbo Phile, the definitive book on the Columbo television series.
Bill and Mark will talk about their friendship with Peter Falk; his idiosyncratic personality; his dedication as an actor both on-camera and behind the scenes; his collaborations with Neil Simon, Frank Capra and John Cassavetes; and, of course, his fondness for and devotion to the Columbo character.
William Link will be joining us in our second hour. Mark Dawidziak will be with us in our first hour. We hope you’ll join us for both hours as we remember Peter Falk.
