We’ll take you back to Aug. 28, 1963 during our second hour as Phil Gries presents a special edition of The Sounds of Lost Television that remembers how television covered The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The largest demonstration for equality in the history of the United States, the March on Washington was the day on which more than 200,000 Americans of every age, race and religion descended on Washington, D.C. to support the passage of the landmark Civic Rights Bill. Phil has put together an impressive collection of audio from that day, including coverage from network news, comments from James Baldwin, Burt Lancaster and Marlon Brando, and excerpts from the speeches of Philip Randolph and Dr. Martin Luther King.

This week’s program will also include Part 2 of our conversation with actor William Schallert (Dobie Gillis, Get Smart, The Nancy Drew Mysteries, The New Gidget, True Blood, The Patty Duke Show).

In Part 1, as you may recall, we discussed Bill’s early career on stage and in television. In this segment, we’ll talk about some of Bill’s favorite film and TV roles, including the Admiral on Get Smart, plus his work with such legends as Walter Matthau, Kirk Douglas and Don Siegel. Part 2 of our conversation with William Schallert will air during our first hour.















Also in our first hour: We’ll welcome filmmaker Steve Kosareff as we take a look at an aspect of television that is all but gone: the era of the locally owned, independent television set dealer. Once the backbone of television retailing, the local TV set dealer has virtually disappeared in this day and age of big box stores. Steve explores the reasons why in his new documentary, TV Man: The Search for The Last Independent Dealer.

For our listeners in Southern California, TV Man will have a weeklong showing at Laemmle’s Monica 4 Theater, 1332 2nd Street, in Santa Monica, from Friday, Sept. 6 through Thursday, Sept. 12. For more information, go to www.tvman.tv.
