One of the most durable character actors in the entertainment industry, with a career that spans five decades, Morgan Woodward has made than 250 film and TV appearances, including 19 episodes of Gunsmoke (more than any actor guest actor), 12 episodes of Wagon Train (also more than any other guest actor), two episodes of the original Star Trek (including a memorable performance as Captain Ronald Tracey in “The Omega Glory”), as well as such feature films as The Killing of a Chinese Bookie with Ben Gazzara, One Little Indian with James Garner, Firecreek with James Stewart and Henry Fonda, and Cool Hand Luke with Paul Newman, where he played one of the memorable characters in motion picture industry, Boss Godfrey, The Man with No Eyes.

Of course, some of you know Morgan Woodward as Shotgun Gibbs on The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, while Dallas fans know him as Punk Anderson, the longtime friend of Jock and Miss Ellie that Morgan played for eight seasons. We will ask Morgan how he came to create some of his famous roles, including The Man with No Eyes in Cool Hand Luke, when he joins us in our second hour.

Also this week, we will pay tribute to legendary late night talk show host Jack Paar as part of a special edition of The Sounds of Lost Television. Though Paar’s five years as host as The Tonight Show (NBC, 1957-1962) have been overshadowed by the 30-year tenure of his immediate successor, Johnny Carson, during five years Paar not only left his own indelible mark on television, but in many respects paved the way for the likes of Jon Stewart today. As always, Phil Gries has put together a very nice package of audio highlights from the Jack Paar Tonight Show, which we will play for you during our first hour.
