James Rosin will join us in our first hour as we pay tribute to actor Jack Klugman, the Emmy Award-winning star of The Odd Couple and Quincy, who passed away on Monday, Dec. 24.

A longtime friend of Jack Klugman, Jim not only is the author of such books as Quincy: The Television Series and Naked City: The Television Series, he also wrote and acted in several episodes of Quincy, including “A Test for Living” and “The Hope of Elkwood.” In fact, Jim co-wrote “A Test of Living” with Jack Klugman, and the episode was later recognized by the Southern California Motion Picture Council for its enlightened treatment of autism.

We’ll talk about Jack’s work on Quincy, The Odd Couple, Gypsy, 12 Angry Men, The Twilight Zone, The Defenders, Naked City and other stage and TV productions, as well as his longtime friendship with Tony Randall. We’ll also play highlights from Jack’s appearance on TV Confidential from January 2010, plus clips from our interview earlier this season with actress Anita Gillette, who appeared with Jack Klugman on Broadway in Gypsy, then later played Quincy’s wife in the final season of Quincy.

Joining us in our second hour will be Golden Globe Award-winning actress Karen Sharpe Kramer, the widow of Stanley Kramer, the legendary motion picture producer and director who was also instrumental in forming the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the people behind the Golden Globe Awards. Karen won a Golden Globe Award for her performance in The High and the Mighty, while their daughter Kat Kramer is a former Miss Golden Globe.

2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Stanley Kramer. We’ll ask Karen about some of the events that are scheduled to honor Stanley this year. But we’ll also talk about Karen’s own career as an actress, which not only goes back to the time when the Golden Age of Hollywood crossed over into the Golden Age of Television (and particularly, live TV dramas), but includes starring roles in such popular films and TV series as
Man with a Gun, The Disorderly Orderly, Johnny Ringo, I Dream of Jeannie, Gunsmoke, Rawhide, Bonanza, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., 77 Sunset Strip and The Wild, Wild West.
