Musician and DVD producer Bill Funt will join us in our first hour as we pay tribute to Robert Hegyes, the actor known to many of us for playing Juan Epstein on the long-running ABC series Welcome Back, Kotter.

Robert Hegyes passed away on Jan. 26, 2012 at the age of 60, and Bill became close friends with Bob over the last few years of his life.

We’ll ask Bill to share some memories with us, plus we’ll look back at Welcome Back, Kotter in general and its impact on Bob’s life and career.

Then in our second hour, we’ll stop by 1313 Mockingbird Lane along with television historian and author Stephen Cox. Steve has written more than twenty books on film and television, including The Munsters: A Trip Down Mockingbird Lane. We’ll not only talk about the original Munsters series starring Fred Gwynne, Al Lewis and Yvonne de Carlo, but we’ll also ask Steve for his thoughts on 1313 Mockingbird Lane, the reimagining of The Munsters that is currently in development by NBC. Steve also has some great stories about his friendship with Al Lewis, as well as his experiences working alongside Buddy Ebsen and Paul Henning.
