Known for his distinguished acting career—including the twelve years he spent playing Lou Grant on both The Mary Tyler Moore Show and his own hour-long series, Lou Grant, not to mention his eight Emmy Awards and numerous other honors—Ed Asner has also made a name for himself as a trade unionist and political activist, including the terms he spent as president of the Screen Actors Guild during the early 1980s, during which time he was an outspoken critic of President Reagan’s policy toward Central America. So it is not surprising that the subject of Ed’s book—The Grouchy Historian: An Old Time Lefty Defends Our Constitution A..., which Ed co-authored along with his longtime friend and fellow Mary Tyler Moore Showcollaborator Ed. Weinberger—is politically oriented.

What may surprise you is The Grouchy Historian is an earnest and engaging attempt at providing the back story of the U.S. Constitution—a subject that has fueled Ed’s passion and interest for many years. Well researched and documented, yet written with an Everyman quality, the book reminds us that it is impossible for anyone to insist on knowing the "original meaning" of the Constitution when the men who wrote the document more than 200 years ago could not agree on what it meant. We’ll talk about The Grouchy Historian, and more, when Ed Asner joins us in our second hour.

For our listeners in the Pacific Northwest, Ed Asner will be performing A Man and His Prostate—the critically acclaimed one-man show written by Ed. Weinberger—in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, Nov. 11. For more information on this performance, as well as other upcoming dates in 2017 and 2018, go to

Phil Gries will join us in our first hour for Part 2 of our tribute to legendary comedian, actor and impressionist Will Jordan as part of The Sounds of Lost Television. Plus: Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen with a brand new edition of This Week in TV History.
