Long before she began playing Mrs. Partridge, Shirley Jones was not only one of the top musical stars in film and on Broadway (including Oklahoma, Carousel and The Music Man), but an accomplished dramatic actress in such films as Silent Night, Lonely Night, The Happy Ending and, of course, her Academy Award-winning turn as Lulu Baines in Elmer Gantry. But because she left such a lasting impression as an ingĂ©nue in the ’60s, and as the beloved mom on The Partridge Family in the 1970s, many people tend to assume that Shirley Jones is as squeaky clean in real life as the fictional characters she’s played.

Shirley debunks that myth in a very candid new book, Shirley Jones: A Memoir, that not only discusses her life and career on stage, film and television, but reveals for the first time the story of her often tumultuous marriage with the love of her life, actor Jack Cassidy. In fact, in many ways Shirley’s book is much a biography of Jack Cassidy as it is the story of her own life. We’ll talk about that, as well as ask her about The Partridge Family and some of her other famous film and TV roles when Shirley Jones joins in our second hour.

Also joining us this week will be Jerry Kolber. Jerry is the creator and executive producer of Brain Games, the critically acclaimed series on the National Geographic Channel that reveals the inner workings of the brain through interactive games and experiments.

Brain Games not only set a ratings record during its first season on National Geographic, but was recently nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Informational Series. We’ll go behind the scenes of Brain Games, plus we’ll ask Jerry about some of the other projects that he has in the works when he joins us in our first hour.

Plus: Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen with our annual look of recently cancelled network and cable shows (those that were notable, or otherwise surprising); Greg Ehrbar with a new DVD report; and listener emails. It’ll be a full program as always, and we certainly hope you’ll join us.
