2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Mystery Girl, the final album by legendary singer/songwriter Roy Orbison, released just a few weeks after his tragic death on Dec. 6, 1988. 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 — while his 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.

We’ll remember The Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Famer this week with a replay of our November 2013 conversation with author and musician John 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 The Big O, 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 ofKukla, 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
