Rogues and Vagabonds starring Barry Morse: World premiere, August 7 on Share-a-Vision Radio

Though best known to American audiences for his many roles on television, including Lt. Philip Gerard on The Fugitive and Dr. Victor Bergman on Space: 1999, Barry Morse was also a steady fixture on radio in the U.K., Canada and U.S. for over 30 years. Among his many credits, he starred as Hamlet on BBC Radio, played the title character in the popular British radio show Send for Paul Temple, and hosted and starred in countless theatrical radio productions for the CBC, including his own long-running show, A Touch of Greasepaint.

Barry recently went back to his radio roots in Rogues and Vagabonds: A Theatrical Scrapbook, an original 60-minute production in which he recreates about a half-dozen performances from A Touch of Greasepaint, including “The Man Who Killed Lincoln,” “Charles Dickens: Would-Be Actor,” “The Actor in Old Age,” plus performances from Shakespeare and George Bernard Shaw. Co-written by Barry and his late wife, Sydney Sturgess, and co-produced by Anthony Wynn and Robert E. Wood, it’s a delightful look at theatrical history as well as an audio treat.

Join us this Tuesday, August 7 at 10:30 pm ET, 7:30 pm PT for the world radio premiere of Rogues and Vagabonds on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org. We then invite you to join Tony, Robert, Dave White and me for a 30-minute discussion of the program immediately following the broadcast. Ed Robertson

The Emmys: New Shows Steal the Spotlight

While the Emmys have not always given much recognition to new shows, this year they’re getting up to speed and giving nominations where they’re due to great “younger” shows like Ugly Betty and Heroes. Unfortunately, though, other shows expected to be in the running were ignored including the extremely popular shows Lost, Friday Night Lights, and Desperate Housewives. Personally, I’m thrilled to see shows like Heroes and Ugly Betty being nominated, but it’s interesting that Grey’s Anatomy and House made the list but not these others like Lost that have all been running for 3 seasons.

It’s Friday the 13th, so spooky things will be happening… or at least you can take a little Freaky Friday moment and watch classic movies switch places as the classic horror film The Shining becomes a romantic comedy and the classic romantic comedy Sleepless in Seattle becomes a horror movie! Both films are re-cut into new (and freakier) trailers courtesy of YouTube.

Check out these freaky Friday switches:
