We’ll remember Charlotte Rae this week with an encore presentation of a conversation that originally aired in October 2015. Known to audiences around the world as Mrs. Garrett on The Facts of Life and Diff’rent Strokes, and as well as Schnauser’s wife on Car 54, Where Are You?, the stage and television actress passed away on Sunday, Aug. 5 at the age of 92.
Charlotte Rae made so many of us laugh throughout her career, which is all the more remarkable when you realize that she often did so while overcoming great personal trauma—including the uncertainty of raising a son with autism at a time when very few medical experts knew much about that condition. We’ll replay our conversation with Charlotte Rae in our second hour.
Also this week: A replay of a conversation from October 2010 with Ron Satlof, the prolific television director who passed away on Monday, July 2 at the age of 79. Early in his career Ron received an Oscar nomination for Frog Story, an animated short that he produced and directed. After moving into network television, Ron directed episodes of Hawaii Five-O, Charlie’s Angels, The A Team, Dynasty, The Amazing Spider-Man and other popular shows, plus he helmed eight of the popular Perry Mason reunion movies that aired on NBC in the mid to late 1980s—including the one that launched the franchise, Perry Mason Returns.
Prior to his career in television, Ron also worked as a second assistant director with Don Siegel on Charley Varrick and with Martin Scorsese and Mean Streets. Ron said that Scorsese’s meticulous preparation had an enormous influence on his career as a director.
We’ll replay our conversation with Ron Satlof in our first hour.
Plus: This being Elvis week, we’ll salute the King with replays of our conversations from August 2017 with actor Michael Dante, who co-starred with Presley in Kid Galahad, and sixties film historian Tom Lisanti. Tom’s book Talking Sixties Drive-In Movies includes a detailed look at the evolution of “The Elvis Movie.”
