Rose Marie, Mitch Ryder, and Jules Verne on the next “Dave white Presents”!
Yes, for five years, Rose Marie was Sally Rogers on THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW. But did you know the 88 year old singer/actress began her career in vaudeville as “Baby Rose Marie” back in 1926? Her extensive resume also includes co-starring on THE DORIS DAY SHOW and HOLLYWOOD SQUARES, not to mention guest appearances on everything from THE MONKEES to MURPHY BROWN!
On Tues. Jan. 17, Rose Marie joins Dave White in a lively conversation with more stories than we can tease you with here. How about her having the brass to demand an $11.00 refund from gangster Bugsy Siegel? But that’s not all . . .
“Devil With a Blue Dress On.” “Sock It To Me, Baby!” “C. C. Rider.” These were only a few of the hits from Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels during the 1960s. If that’s all you know about Mitch, then Wes Britton’s interview with the Detroit legend will tell you about Mitch’s 25 releases over the years, many only available in Europe. Did you know Jimi Hendrix wanted Mitch to join him in a new band? Did you know Mitch just published his candid memoir, DEVILS AND BLUE DRESSES: MY WILD RIDE AS A ROCK LEGEND? Or that he has a new album coming in Feb. called THE PROMISE produced by Don Was? We’ll play you two selections and share some inside stories about what Mitch will be doing in 2012. But that’s not all either . . .
In our last broadcast, Brian Taves of the North American Jules Verne Society talked about a paperback series of Verne’s books now being translated into English for the first time. What can you discover in these brand-new collections? Expect some surprises in part two of this revealing look back at a father of science fiction . . .
All this, along with the “predictably unpredictable” humor of DWP, comes Tues. Jan 17 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over—
On Wed. Jan. 18, the 90 minutes of variety entertainment will become available as a podcast, mp3 download, from itunes and through TEVO, or on the player at:
