TV Confidential to Re-Air Another Interview

Good news! Another interview from TV Confidential will be re-airing this week. If you didn't hear it last year, Show #118 was my second appearance on TV Confidential, in December 2011.  In it, author Greg Ehrbar and I discuss our favorite Christmas programs with the show's regular hosts Ed Robertson, Tony Figueroa, and Donna Allen.  Ed calls me "...the holiday TV guru..."  I like that alot!  Can you guess which are my own personal favorite Christmas specials?  The first thing I bring up is Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas.  I was extremely impressed with Greg--isn't he sharp?  I loved his reading of the TV special Santa Claus is Comin' to Town.  In the broadcast, you can hear me tittering during Greg's reading of that classic Rankin/Bass Animagic special.

From the press release: 

Music journalist Lesley-Ann Jones and holiday TV programming expert Joanna Wilson will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, airing Dec. 19-25, 2012 at the following times and venues:

We'll open the program by welcoming award-winning music journalist Lesley-Ann Jones, author of Mercury: An Intimate Biography of Freddie Mercury,
an unvarnished, revealing look at the legendary lead vocalist of Queen whose unmatched skills as a songwriter and showman made both him and the group into household names. And though both Mercury and Queen left their marks in the world of music, in many respects, their success would not have been possible were it not for television - and particularly, the music video for the groundbreaking song "Bohemian Rhapsody." We'll talk about that, and a whole lot more, when Lesley-Ann joins us in our first hour.

Also this week: With just a few shopping days left until Christmas, Greg Ehrbar will join us for some last-minute holiday gift ideas as part of an expanded DVD report. We'll then close the program with an encore presentation of our conversation with Greg, Tony, Donna and holiday TV programming expert Joanna Wilson about some of our favorite holiday TV specials and holiday-themed episodes of classic TV series. Joanna Wilson, of course,
is the queen of holiday TV programming: her books on the subject include Tis The Season TV: The Encyclopedia of Christmas-Themed Episodes, Specials and Made for TV Movies.
