We’ll take you back to the Golden Age of Hollywood and the Golden Age of Television in our first hour as we welcome Christopher and Linda Lewis. Christopher’s mom, Academy and Emmy Award-winning actress Loretta Young, was one of the first major motion picture stars to embrace the medium of television. Loretta Young was also one of the first women to leave her mark on television, which she did as the star and producer of The Loretta Young Show, the long-running NBC drama that remains one of the best anthology series to come out of the Golden Age of Television.

2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Loretta Young, as well as the 60th anniversary of the premiere of The Loretta Young Show. Among the events that will celebrate the occasion will be a six-week film festival at the AFI Silver Theater and Cultural Center in Silver Springs, Maryland (March 8 thru April 18) that will include a wide-ranging retrospective of some of Loretta Young’s best films, including The Bishop’s Wife, The Stranger, Man Castle and The Farmer’s Daughter; the exhibit Loretta Young: Hollywood Legend: 100 Years of Glamour and Grace, on display at the Hollywood Museum in Hollywood, CA through the end of April 2013; and the release of approximately 100 episodes of The Loretta Young Show as part of an excellent DVD box set that is now available through Shout! Factory.

And speaking of great anthology series from the Golden Age of Television, James Rosin will join us in our second hour as we go behind the scenes of Naked City, the critically acclaimed drama created by Bert Leonard that was also the first network prime time dramas to be filmed entirely on location in the streets of New York. Jim’s book Naked City: The Television Series not only features interviews with many of the actors, writers, and directors who worked on Naked City, but discusses what made the show unique, from its distinct visual look to the many thought-provoking stories that often touched on the human condition.

Jim Rosin will be appearing at the 17th Annual Williamsburg Film Festival, Wednesday, Mar. 6 thru Sunday, Mar. 9 at the Holiday Inn / Patriot Convention Center, 3032 Richmond Road in Williamsburg, VA. Also scheduled to appear that weekend will be Sherry Jackson, Bo Hopkins, Rosemary Forsyth and Don Collier. For more information, go to
