We’ll spend most of our program this week remembering Mary Tyler Moore, the iconic actress and producer who passed away on Wednesday, Jan. 25 at the age of 80.

Whether you think of her as Laurie Petrie, Mary Richards, or one of the guiding forces behind MTM Enterprises, Mary Tyler Moore helped three generations of women see alternatives for themselves beyond traditional roles on television and in the real world. Jennifer Armstrong will join us by phone in our first hour, while Vince Waldron will join us in the studio during our second hour. Jennifer’s books include Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted and All the Brilliant Minds Who Made..., while Vince’s books include The Official Dick Van Dyke Show Book: The Definitive History of Tel....

This week’s show will also include the first of a two-part interview with Emmy Award-winning actor, writer and voice artist Dan Castellaneta, the voice of Homer Simpson. Not only is Dan a big fan of The Dick Van Dyke Show, he wrote the foreword for the deluxe expanded archive edition of The Official Dick Van Dyke Show Book. We will ask Dan about some of his favorite Laura Petrie episodes, and more, when he joins us in our second hour.

Dan Castellaneta is also the writer and star of For Piano and Harpo, a brand new play about Oscar Levant, the renowned pianist, composer, humorist and bon vivant who was known as much for his biting wit as for his musical compositions. For Piano and Harpo is playing at the Falcon Theatre, 4252 Riverside Drive in Burbank, CA through Sunday, March 5. For tickets and more information, call 818-955-8101 or go to
