WE SPEAK TO THE FABULOUS HERBIE J. PILATO. WE TALK GROOVY PEEPS OF CLASSIC TV, HIS BOOK ON ELIZABETH MONTGOMERY, DUELING DERWEEDS AND MUCH MORE….
We had a great time talking to Herbie J. Pilato about classic TV and his very fun books. Dashing, Daring and Debonair and Glamour, Gidgets And The Girl Next Door. Very fun books on all the groovy folks from Classic TV. We also talked his fun Bewitched companion books and his great biography on Elizabeth Montgomery: Twitch Upon A Star... We touched on the Darwin versus Dirwood feud. Who was the best, Dick Sargent or Dick York. Find out who was Elizabeths Montgomerys fave of the Dicks. Also what Endora/Agnes Moorehead thought of the Darwins..
A fun time was had by all. Herbie J. will return to talk about his soon to be released bio of Mary Tyler Moore. I know I'll read it.
Thanks to Herbie J. for being so fun.

I was honored to interview my Dark Shadows crush, actually my all around crush, David Selby again. I had him to myself, no sharing with Donnie. We talked Dark Shadows, stalking Kathryn Hepburn, movies. We also talked about what he and Don Knotts (AKA Barney Fife) had in common. What someone said when they saw him teaching. I asked about his advice for having a long lasting marriage with his lovely wife Chip. We talked about so many different things. Hopefully David and I will do a few more. He is endlessly interesting and it would be a labor of love for his many loyal fans. He is a treasure trove of information. He is just simply a treasure. Not only is he incredibly handsome whether as Quentin or with his beautiful head of silver hair, he is a good person. I feel very blessed speaking to him. I've named myself The David Selby Historian.. HA!
I want to thank Michele Tsai, Wally Helvy and Sandra Lynn Sandoval for some questions they wanted me to ask David. Sandra can be heard playing Quentins theme before and after podcast. Also thanks to Joan Prato.
Mostly thanks to David Selby for being such a great guy and doing the show again. He really is the sweetest man. I am so looking forward to talking to him again. He is a doll.
I want to share something David wrote to me on Easter.
"Grace, Bless you, and your listeners....bless the fans- they gave me a life."
Bless you DAVID for bringing much joy into our lives!
