We’ll welcome author, journalist and screenwriter Marvin J. Wolf. Marv’s books include Beating the Odds, the memoirs of ABC founding president Leonard Goldenson; The Tattooed Rabbi, the debut novel in the mystery series featuring crime-solving Rabbi Ben Maimon; and Fallen Angels: Chronicles of L.A. Crime and Mystery, a behind-the-scenes look at 39 famous crimes that not only took place in Los Angeles, but reveal an altogether different side of the City of Angels than what you may have seen on television or in the movies. Among the cases discussed in the book: Caryl Chessman, the Red Light Bandit; the precedent-setting rape trial of movie mogul Alexander Pantages; the death of actor Nick Adams; the tragic murder of actor Sal Mineo; and the gruesome murder of Elizabeth Short (the woman known as The Black Dahlia), an unsolved case that forever haunted “Jigsaw John” St. John, the famous L.A. police detective who wore Badge No. 1.

Marvin J. Wolf co-wrote Fallen Angels along with noted criminal defense attorney Katherine Mader; the book was recently re-released both in paperback and as an e-Book. The e-Book edition of Fallen Angels includes links to the various crime scenes detailed in each story, so that readers can travel directly to the locations themselves, virtually via Google Maps and Google Earth. Marv will join us in our first hour.

Then, while we’re on the subject of famous crimes and famous detectives in Los Angeles, 2013 marks the 30th anniversary of the premiere of Barnaby Jones, the long-running CBS private eye starring Buddy Ebsen. At the time of his death in 2005, Buddy Ebsen was working on Sizzling Cold Case: The Legend of Lori London, an original novel featuring Barnaby Jones. Though the manuscript was unfinished when Ebsen died, it was eventually completed and published in 2006 with the help of his friend, novelist Darlene Quinn. Darlene has since published several novels of her own, including Twisted Webs, Webs of Power, Webs of Fate and the forthcoming Unpredictable Webs.

We interviewed Darlene Quinn in November 2010 about working with Buddy Ebsen; we’ll replay that conversation as part of our second hour.

All this, plus a brand new edition of This Week in TV History. It’ll be a full program as always… we certainly hope you’ll join us.
