Scott O'Brien's Ann Harding

"Critics found Double Harness “spicy, intelligent and sophisticated stuff.” It did well at the box-office. In his 2007 review of Double Harness SF critic/author Mick LaSalle, who wrote the foreword for the BearManor publication, Ann Harding – Cinema’s Gallant Lady stated, “Double Harness is especially precious because it is one more of a handful of first-rate vehicles for Ann Harding, who was perhaps the best actress of the early 1930s. Don’t believe it? See her. Her technique is psychological, extremely modern.”

Dave White Presents!

On April 26, Dave White Presents returns with more Variety with a capital V!

First up, film maker Steve Keyser talks about his limited edition 3 DVD set commemorating the life and legacy of the late, legendary guitarist for Quicksilver Messenger Service, John Cipollina. Recoil is a collector’s item indispensible for fans of the San Francisco sound, and Steve will go behind-the-scenes to tell the story of this impressive rock-umentary with interviews from everyone from Jerry Garcia to Paul Kantner.

Then, Dave White chats with Rory Leighton Aronsky on his book, What If They Lived? It’s a fascinating look into what might have happened if stars like Fatty Arbuckle, John Garfield, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, and Heath Ledger had not died. Some interesting speculations . . .

Next, we get into the music business from a new angle with Roy Kohn, author of the memoir Songplugger: Or, How Much is That Doggie in the Window? Roy shares his memories of being a “songplugger” back in the days when sheet music was the mainstay of the business, then through payola and radio play, and his working with everyone from Al Jolson, Patti Page, Ray Charles, and Donovan Leitch. We promise you’ll learn about a side of the industry you’ve heard no where else!

All this, and the usual unusual “predictably unpredictable” comedy of DWP will debut Tuesday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over—

On Wednesday April 27, the show will be available for download anytime you like at—

Don’t forget—you can now hear KSAV on your smartphone using the TuneIn app—

And entertainment news and views are posted daily at the DWP Facebook page—

Paul Reed's booksigning!

Hi everybody!
I need your support at the Chatham Bookstore this Saturday, April 16th from 1 to 3 PM. For those of you who don't know of it, this is a book I wrote about my father. One of seven children born to Russian immigrants, he was the first one born in America. As a child enduring poverty and periods of orphanage in upstate New York, he set his sights on becoming successful. As a young man in his late 20s, he was singing on the radio. Then, after having made a name for himself on the Broadway stage, he went on to become a regular fixture on TV sitcoms of the 60s and 70s. I felt I owed my dad some kind of a tribute. When he died in 2007 at age 97, I began to write his life story. I'm trying to get it off the ground, and your support this Saturday would be HUGELY appreciated!
