Friday, Dec. 6 will mark the 25th anniversary of the death of Roy Orbison, the Rock and Rock Hall of Famer whose singular voice and inimitable style inspired the likes of Bruce Springsteen, k.d. lang, Tom Petty, Elvis Costello, John Lennon, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, and countless other musicians.

Known for such iconic songs as “Blue Bayou,” “Running Scared,” “In Dreams” and, of course, “Pretty Woman,” Roy Orbison sang about love, pain and heartache like few others — no doubt, because he understood it like few others, having experienced more pain and misery than most of us will see in a lifetime, including the tragic deaths of his first wife and first two children.

We’ll remember The Big O this week by welcoming author and musicianJohn Kruth. John’s book Rhapsody in Black: The Life and Music of Roy Orbison not only provides the back story behind every hit record of Orbison, but also includes information about Roy’s many appearances on television, including Roy Orbison: A Black and White Night, the award-winning special produced by Cinemax that is still considered one of the best concert films ever made. John Kruth will join us in our second hour.

Also joining us this week will be Mark Milano, curator, the official website of Kukla, Fran and Ollie, and the producer of Kukla, Fran and Ollie: The First Episodes.

Mark recently released a third volume of Kukla, Fran and Ollie on DVD that includes guest appearances by guitarist Jose Greco, singer Dennis Day, and NBC news commentator H.V. Kaltenborn, plus black-and-white clips of two KFO episodes that were the first color television shows ever broadcast. Mark Milano will join us in our first hour.

Plus: Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen with an expanded edition of This Week in TV History.
