Edie Adams was much more than the pretty pitch woman for Muriel Cigars and longtime singer/sidekick of Ernie Kovacs. She was also an accomplished actress, artist, designer, producer, and nightclub performer, not to mention a true pioneer when it came to preserving television. Edie also took an innovative approach to Here’s Edie (ABC, 1962-1964), her groundbreaking musical variety series that provides an unique capsule of the various changes in 1960s entertainment culture while also reflecting her own eclectic musical tastes.

We’ll remember Edie Adams this week along with Edie’s son, Josh Mills, owner of Ediad Productions and the official archivist of both the Edie Adams estate and the estate of Ernie Kovacs. Josh is also the executive producer of Here's Edie: The Edie Adams Television Collection, a new box set from MVD Visual that features 21 episodes of Here’s Edie, featuring such guest stars as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Sammy Davis Jr., Bobby Darin, Johnny Mathis, Bob Hope, Rowan & Martin, Buddy Hackett, Soupy Sales, Andre Previn, Peter Falk, Allan Sherman and Zsa Zsa Gabor, plus such extra features as her classic TV ads for Muriel Cigars, plus rarely seen Edie Adams musical numbers from the various Ernie Kovacs shows. Here’s Edie was never rebroadcast after its original ABC run, so this is a real opportunity to see a true TV gem. Josh Mills will join us in our second hour.

For our listeners in Southern California, The Cinefamily will honor the life and career of Edie Adams on Tuesday, Feb. 4 with an evening that will include a screening of The Apartment, the classic 1960 film directed by Billy Wilder that also marked Edie’s motion picture debut, plus a panel discussion about Edie’s life with Ernie Kovacs, and a selection of clips from Here’s Edie.

And speaking of long lost TV treasures, Ron Simon will join us in our first hour as we go behind the scenes of The Paley Center for Media. A longtime curator with the Paley Center in New York, Ron is also one of the first true television archaeologists, Ron discovered such lost programs as the live Honeymooners and the only video performance of the Rat Pack, plus he has curated such exhibitions as The Television of Dennis Potter; Witness to History; Jack Benny: The Television and Radio Work; and Worlds Without End: The Art and History of the Soap Opera. We’ll ask Ron how he first became involved with The Paley Center, as well as take a look at some of the upcoming events at The Paley Center, including the upcoming PaleyFests in Los Angeles and New York.

The Paley Center will also celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of th... with screenings of two essential programs for the Beatles fan: the documentary What’s Happening: The Beatles in the USA and the famous Feb. 9, 1964 edition of The Ed Sullivan Show that marked the first official appearance of the Beatles on American television. The screenings will take place on Saturday, Feb. 8 and Sunday, Feb. 9 at the Paley Center in New York, 25 West 52nd Street in New York City, as well as at the Paley Center in Los Angleles, 465 N. Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills. For more information, go to
