This week’s guests will include Dan Harary, the longtime Hollywood publicist once described as the “Forrest Gump of show business,” given his uncanny knack for bumping into movie and TV stars, one way or another, in everyday ordinary circumstances.

While encounters with celebrities is not exactly uncommon for someone in Dan’s profession, what makes Dan unusual is that he has somehow managed to attract famous people ever since he was fifteen years old, when he worked as a roadie for many music acts that performed near his hometown of Asbury Park, New Jersey. Over the next fifty years, he would cross paths with not just film and TV stars, but musicians like Richie Havens, Bruce Springsteen, Micky Dolenz, and Mike Nesmith, plus Playboy Playmates, porn stars, two Apollo astronauts, and even a U.S. vice-president.

Many of Dan’s stories are funny, strange, offbeat, or simply hard to believe. He has put most of them together in a fun new book, Flirting with Fame: A Hollywood Publicist Recalls 50 Years of Celebrity Close Encounters, which we’ll discuss when Dan Harary joins us in our second hour.

Our first hour this week will feature an encore presentation of our special holiday-themed edition of The Sounds of Lost Television. Phil Gries will play rarely heard audio highlights of some of the earliest surviving network TV coverage of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, including clips from broadcasts hosted by Lorne Greene, Betty White, Martin Milner, Kent McCord and June Lockhart, as well as highlights from vintage network Thanksgiving TV specials hosted by the likes of Dean Martin and Bob and Ray.
