Also in this hour: Phil Gries with Part 2 of the Sounds of Lost Television special tribute to New York Mets announcer Ralph Kiner, featuring highlights from Kiner’s interviews with baseball Hall of Famers Willie Mays and Duke Snider. Second hour: Ed welcomes actress Shelley Morrison (The Flying Nun, General Hospital, Will & Grace), along with her husband, documentary filmmaker Walter Dominguez. Shelly is the executive producer, and Walter is the writer, director and producer, of Weaving the Past: Journey of Discovery, a moving story about Walter’s attempt to trace the roots of his grandfather Emilio Hernandez. The film originally began as a family project, but soon evolved into a much bigger story that discusses not only Mexican-American history, but issues of social justice that are still relevant today. Shelley and Walter will host a benefit gala screening of Weaving the Past on May 18 that will benefit the soon-to-be-opened Museum of Social Justice, located on historic Olvera Street in Los Angeles.
