Celebrating Mary Tyler Moore

Tuesday, Oct, 13 2015

On the Tuesday PhilCast we'll be talking to the man behind tonight's PBS hour-long special, "Mary Tyler Moore, a Celebration".

Steve Boetcher will be in the studio with me to chat up his latest project. Steve has been on the show a couple of times before talking about his wonderful Pioneers of Television series on PBS.

I like his stuff and tonight's special should be no different.

I'm a little young to really appreciate her work with Dick Van Dyke (oooohh, ROB!) but that hat toss in the open of the show and that newsroom with Ed Asner....I was all over that back in the day.

Listen in to my conversation with Steve right after the 4:00 news Tuesday.

Kicked out over a pizza

Thursday, Oct, 8 2015

One of the stories I'll discuss on the Thursday PhilCast is about an 800-pound man who was kicked out of a hospital because they caught him ordering a pizza.

At some point, you've got to pull back on the pizza.

This looks like it's past that point.

Well past.

But did the hospital do wrong by him?

And now the question has become where to put him?

Seriously. His father is stumped.

We'll discuss.

TV Theme Songs at #1

Wednesday, Oct, 7 2015

Remember when TV theme songs were a big deal?
I do.

Interesting story I saw today from Billboard, the people who have forever done the Top 100 music chart.

Only six TV theme songs have ever made it to #1 on the chart.
Why people say 'charts' when there's only one chart remains a mystery to me.

Anyway, no theme not only made it to #1 but stayed #1 longer than the theme from "

My beloved Hawaii 5-0 peaked at #4 on the Hot 100 in 1969.

You can CLICK HERE to see how well your favorite old TV show theme did on the chart.

We'll discuss/reminisce in the first hour of the show on Wednesday.
