Though many of us think of her starring roles as Cinnamon Carter on Mission: Impossible (for which she won three Emmy Awards), and Dr. Helena Russell on Space: 1999, Barbara Bain has a very extensive theatre background that dates back to her early days as an actress, when she studied at the Actors Studio in New York under the great Lee Strasberg. We’ll ask Barbara about working with Strasberg; her experience as a dancer under the tutelage of Martha Graham; some of her early work in television, including appearances on Harbourmaster with Larry Hagman, and as Rob Petrie’s former girlfriend "Dorie Doo" on The Dick Van Dyke Show; and, of course, a question or two about Mission: Impossible and Space: 1999 when she joins us in our first hour.

Barbara Bain is currently co-starring along with
Tanna Frederick in the stage production of Claire Chafee’s Why We Have a Body, which begins an eight-week run at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica on Friday, March 2, with performances through Sunday, Apr. 29. For tickets and more information, call (310) 392-7327 or go to www.edgemarcenter.org.

We’ll also climb aboard The Tiki this week as we welcome back actor, screenwriter and television historian James Rosin. Jim’s latest book, Adventures in Paradise: The Television Series, is a behind-the-scenes oral history of the popular ABC series from the early 1960s starring Gardner McKay. Besides high production values, strong writing, and an excellent roster of guest stars, Adventures in Paradise was also a show with a distinguished pedigree. It was not only based on a concept by bestselling novelist James Michener (Sayonara, Hawaii, Shogun), but boasted such talented producers as Martin Manoulis, William Self, Dominick Dunne and, briefly, Roy Huggins. We’ll talk about what made Adventures in Paradise such a unique network TV series — and what made Gardner McKay an unusual television star — when Jim Rosin joins us in our second hour.

Plus: Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen with a look at the highs, lows, and everything in between of last week’s Oscar telecast hosted by Billy Crystal. It’ll be a full program as always... we certainly hope you’ll join us.
