Timmy is outta the well and ready for action!

I just want to thank our most recent guest the one, the only Jon Provost "Timmy" from the "Lassie" show! Make sure you listen to this interview for the backstage stories that give you the best trivia around. Jon talks about how the only reason his mom had him audition for the role was to meet June Lockheart!! HAHAHA. He also touches on how being a celebrity in those days is so much different than being one now. One of my favorite topics we touched on was how compensation from that era compares to the stars of today AND how some child actors had such a rough go of it in those days.
So go get your checkered shirt and jeans and whistle the opening to Lassie right before you listen to this interview. Just use the grey player on the left side of our homepage at

(or you can skip the whistling part and just listen to it from this YouTube clip! :))

Leslie Nielsen will SHIRLEY be missed

Very sad to hear about the passing of an acting and comedic legend. For older fans Leslie Nielsen may be remembered more for his role in the 1956 sci-fi classic "Forbidden Planet" but for younger fans we will remember him from the "Naked Gun" series and of course, "Airplane!".
Recently Nielsen was admitted to a Fort Lauderdale, Florida hospital for pneumonia. Yesterday, Dr. Doug Nielsen, Nielsen's nephew, announced to a radio station that Nielsen had died in his sleep around 5:30 p.m. EST, surrounded by family and friends. He was 84 years old.
Here's a great collection of Leslie Nielsen moments.
