This week’s program will include an encore presentation of our October 2014 conversation with Ken Osmond, the actor known around the world as Eddie Haskell on Leave It to Beaver. Ken Osmond passed away on Monday, May 18 at age 76. Our chat with Ken was a well-rounded conversation that covered not only his show business life before and after Leave It to Beaver (including his early career as a child actor working with the likes of Jennifer Jones, Ozzie Nelson, and Spencer Tracy), but his service with the U.S. Army Reserve (a stint that coincided with the last years of production of Beaver), his lifelong interest in military history, his distinguished career as a peace officer with the Los Angeles Police Department, and his struggles with PTSD after he was shot in the line of duty. We’ll replay our conversation with Ken Osmond in our second hour.
Also this week: We will welcome back Marvin J. Wolf—author, screenwriter, novelist, raconteur and a veteran of the U.S. Army. Marv served more than thirteen years active duty, including a combat tour in Vietnam, before returning to the States in 1974 to embark on a very successful career as a freelance writer and photojournalist that has continued for more than four decades.
Marv’s latest book, They Were Soldiers: The Sacrifices and Contributions of Our Vietnam Veterans, is a collaboration with Joseph L. Galloway, the New York Times bestselling author of the We Were Soldiers series and, like Marv, an accomplished journalist and decorated Vietnam veteran. They Were Soldiers not only profiles fifty men and women from various walks of life who served in Vietnam in one capacity or another, but shows that the Vietnam generation is every bit as worthy of respect and admiration as the generations of soldiers that preceded them—particularly in light of the animosity that many Vietnam veterans faced when they came home to the United States.
Among the veterans profiled in They Were Soldiers are former U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel, former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, and Oscar-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone. In fact, in many respects, Oliver Stone’s personal story typifies that of many Vietnam veterans. We’ll talk about that, and more, when Marvin J. Wolf joins us in our first hour.
