TV CONFIDENTIAL is a two-hour radio talk show about all aspects of television. Each edition features lively interviews with special guests on topics related to popular network TV shows and the state of the medium in general. Our audience encompasses listeners from all parts of the world, including many who work in the film, radio and television industries. The common bond is their unbridled passion for the past, present and future of television programming. Regular features of TV CONFIDENTIAL include an interactive look back at "This Week in Television History," The Sounds of Lost Television, a DVD report, and commentary on items related to television. But the hallmark of the show is the in-depth interviews with the many well-known actors, writers, producers, directors, journalists, authors and other entertainment industry professionals who appear as guests. We strive to take listeners behind the scenes of a wide range of television programs past and present. We often compare contemporary programs with those of the '50s, '60s, '70s and '80s. This allows a very broad audience to not only relate to our show, but participate with their imagination and memories. Previous guests include such film and TV icons as Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man), Barbara Feldon (Get Smart), Charles Grodin (Midnight Run), Lee Meriwether (Barnaby Jones), Julie Newmar (Batman), Sandra Bernhard (Roseanne, The L Word), Dennis Farina (Crime Story, Get Shorty), Tony Denison (Crime Story, The Closer), Stacy Keach (Titus, Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer), John O'Hurley (Seinfeld, Dancing with the Stars), Michael Learned (The Waltons), Efrem Zimbalist Jr. (The F.B.I., 77 Sunset Strip), William Schallert (Get Smart, Dobie Gillis, The Patty Duke Show), James Best (The Dukes of Hazzard), Richard Anderson (The Bionic Woman, The Six Million Dollar Man), Sally Kellerman (M*A*S*H), Larry Manetti (Magnum, p.i.), Dee Wallace (E.T.: The Extraterrestrial, Cujo), Hank Garrett (Three Days of the Condor, Car 54: Where Are You?), Mary McDonough (The Waltons), Kathryn Leigh Scott (Dark Shadows) and Susan Olsen (The Brady Bunch), as well as NPR television critic David Bianculli, HBO programming executive Andrew Goldman, Emmy-winning writer/producer Joseph Dougherty (Saving Grace, thirtysomething), former CBS programming executive Mike Dann and broadcast pioneer Loreen Arbus.
