Many of you will recognize James McEachin for his more than 150 appearances in such films and TV series as Matlock, Dragnet, Emergency, Play Misty for Me, Fuzz, True Grit, First Monday, The Alpha Caper, Buck and the Preacher and The Perry Mason Mysteries, as well as his starring role in the private-eye series Tenafly (NBC, 1973-1974), the first network dramatic series with an African-American actor in a solo leading role. What you may not know is that James is also a decorated U.S. Army veteran with seven medals of valor, including the Purple Heart, as well as an accomplished playwright and novelist.

James’ passion for the rights of military veterans is at the heart of his play Above the Call, Beyond the Duty, a thought-provoking journey through one man’s concept of patriotism. In addition, James is the author of six novels, including Tell Me a Tale, an epic novel of the Old South that delves into the many issues of slavery while also offering a better understanding of the white man’s view of the times. Tell Me a Tale was recently released as both an eBook and as an audiobook. Peter Bart of Variety not only said that the writing in Tell Me a Tale is “vivid and effective,” but that James’ performance in the audiobook “would make Morgan Freeman a fan.” We’ll ask James about his play, his books, his military experience, and his work with the likes of Henry Fonda, Clint Eastwood, James Garner and David Janssen when he join us in our second hour.

Also joining us this week will be singer/actress Kat Kramer, daughter of iconic film director Stanley Kramer and the founder of Kat Kramer’s Films That Change the World, a series of motion picture screenings that raise awareness about important social issues. Previous selections in the series include Teach the Children Well, which deals with the growing problem of bullying in schools today, and Bully, which recently won the Stanley Kramer Award from the Producers Guild of America.

Kat and her mom, Karen Sharpe Kramer, will be conducting an acting workshop in Los Angeles on Wednesday, March 20 as part of Meet the Biz, a company that strives to create diversity in the entertainment industry. We’ll ask Kat how she became involved with Meet the Biz, plus we’ll about her new rendition of the classic song “Bless the Beasts and Children,” which she recently performed at a benefit for CircusPAWS, when she joins us in our first hour.

Plus: This Week in TV History, and a brand new DVD report. It’ll be a full program as always, and we certainly hope you’ll join us.
