Don Collier’s acting career spans more than six decades and more than seventy Western movies and TV series, including roles opposite the likes of John Wayne, Dean Martin, Robert Mitchum, James Arness, Tom Selleck, and Elvis Presley; the lead role in The Outlaws (NBC, 1960-1962), one of the first filmed hour-long Western series for NBC; and the character for which he is best known, ranch foreman Sam Butler on The High Chaparral (NBC, 1967-1971). A gifted storyteller, Don co-hosted a popular weekly show for many years on Sirius Satellite Radio (Fred’s Trailer Park Bash, with Fred Imus), plus he starred in a series of iconic TV commercials for Pace Picante Sauce and Hubba Bubba Bubble Gum. Don Collier will join us in our second hour.

Don Collier’s one-man show, Confessions of an Acting Cowboy, is now available on DVD and includes many great stories about his formative years as an actor. You can order Don Collier: Confessions of an Acting Cowboy directly by emailing discmasters.fulfullment@gmail.com or through his website, DonCollierActingCowboy.com

Joining Don in our second hour will be our mutual friend Susan McCray—one of the first female casting directors in network television, and a renaissance woman whose career spans the worlds of TV, music, radio, and now documentary film making. Susan not only produced Don Collier: Confessions of an Acting Cowboy, she is also the producer of Kent McCray: Laughter, Love and Television, an excellent documentary about the life and career of the widely respected and much beloved unit production manager and producer who was also Susan’s husband for more than forty years. Kent McCray’s personal story arc in television not only includes The High Chaparral, Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie, and many other collaborations with Michael Landon, but, in many respects, parallels the history of the first forty years of television itself. Susan and Don will share some memories about their mutual love for Kent McCray, plus we’ll learn about the latest developments of Susan’s popular radio magazine show, Kaleidoscope—including a new segment featuring Don Collier.

Kent McCray: Laughter, Love and Television is among the extra features included in The High Chaparral: The Final Season, the DVD collection available through Shout Factory. However, you can also order the Kent McCray documentary separately through select retailers.

Ed is holding the Emmy Award that First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy won in 1962 for hosting A Tour of The White House. That Emmy is among the many authentic artifacts from the Golden Age of Television that are on display at TheHistoryofTV.com

This week’s show will also include Part 2 of a conversation that began last week with three-time Emmy nominated writer/producer Phil Savenick. Like many of us, Phil spent the first act of his life watching TV. He then spent his second act creating and producing TV (including many highly regarded compilation documentaries about the history of television, as well as such popular documentary series as That’s Hollywood and The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau), before devoting the third act of his life to expressing the impact that TV continues to have all over the world. That expression takes several forms, including curating a virtual museum devoted to television, which you can see at TheHistoryofTV.com.

The mission statement of TheHistoryofTV.com is to celebrate the life and career of Philo T. Farnsworth, the man who invented television when he was age fourteen, and includes such authentic artifacts as Farnsworth’s original chalk drawing for the first television camera. But it also features the most impressive collection of vintage TV sets you will ever see, including the very first TV set sold by RCA; an early French model (with wings); a rarely seen pilot radio canopy TV; and early versions of the remote control, including the very first “clicker.” The canopy TV, by the way, is the one that inspired mothers across America to warn their children not to sit too close to the set, “or else you’ll burn your eyes out.” Phil Savenick will explain why when he joins us in our first hour.
