In case you missed it, the Daytime Emmy Awards and the Prime Time Emmys recently announced that they are working together on two major changes that will go into effect in 2022, one of which is the creation of the Children’s & Family Emmy Awards as a standalone franchise, while the other is a realignment of the Daytime Emmys and Prime Time Emmys so that both competitions will be organized entirely by content genre. The latter announcement not only marks a major shift away from the long-established traditional method (which is based on what time of day or which day/night of the week that Emmy-nominated programs air), but is the most significant change to the Emmy Awards platform in nearly fifty years.

Joining us to discuss these developments will be Adam Sharp, president of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (aka the Daytime Emmys). Adam will not only help us sift through the various issues at play, but share a few thoughts on the recent passing of two major Emmy Award winners, Betty White and John Madden. Adam Sharp will join us in our second hour.

Also this week: Playwright and author Jordan Young will join us for Part 2 of our conversation about at the television career of Spike Jones, the legendary bandleader and musical satirist whose influence in comedy and satire paved the way for Monty Python, Jimmy Buffett, George Carlin, Peter Sellers, and, arguably most notably, Weird Al Yankovic. Among other topics, we’ll discuss the near-collaboration between Spike Jones and Ernie Kovacs and the circumstances that ended that partnership before it began. Jordan Young will join us in our first hour.

Jordan Young’s many books on entertainment history include Spike Jones, Off the Record: The Man Who Murdered Music, a comprehensive history and discography of Spike Jones that has been completely updated and reissued with a host of new material, including more than 260 never before published photographs, scripts, arrangements, memorabilia and more.

Our first hour will include a remembrance of Ron Bacon, the Emmy Award-winning associate director who was also one of the true pioneers of network television. Ron Bacon passed away Tuesday, Dec. 21 at age ninety-one.

Besides wearing many hats throughout his thirty-five years in network TV production, which spanned more than 12,500 broadcasts, covering just about every type of programming available, Ron Bacon was an accomplished musician and songwriter whose accomplishments after television include The Chicken Man, a full-length musical stage comedy that Ron wrote and produced for the Sedona Arts Center in Sedona, Arizona in September 2000. The origins for The Chicken Man, however, date back to the early 1960s, when Ron encountered a local character in New Orleans known as “the Chicken Man” while waiting out a hurricane in the French Quarter.

Ron and I discussed the back story of The Chicken Man in an interview that we recorded in the fall of 2021. We’ll play that conversation as part of our program this week.
