For many Baby Boomers and Generation Xers, the news last week of the deaths ofDave Madden (Reuben Kinkaid on The Partridge Family) and Russell Johnson(The Professor on Gilligan’s Island) Thursday represented more than just the passing of two iconic television actors. Because we grew up watching them ― either every week when their shows were in first-run on their respective networks, or every day after school when Partridge andGilligan first went into reruns ― in many respects it’s as if a part of our childhood has died. That they both passed away within hours of each other made that news a double blow.

For these reasons and more, we’ll spend our first hour remembering these two actors along with Tony Figueroa, Donna Allen and This Week in TV History. We’ll talk about Partridge and Gilligan, but we’ll also discuss some of their other contributions to television, including The Twilight Zone (in the case of Russell Johnson) and Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In (in the case of Dave Madden).

Then Phil Gries will join us in our second hour as The Sounds of Lost Televisionlooks back at Sunday, February 9, 1964: the night of The Beatles’ first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, and the first official appearance of the group on American television. Phil has put together another great collection of rarely heard audio clips that not only captures the magic of that historic television moment, but gives you a sense of how television news covered The Beatles, particularly during their first year in America, as well as how the influence of The Beatles of American music and, for that matter, American television.
