Donelle Dadigan, founder and president of The Hollywood Museum, will join us this weekend as we continue our look at the innovative ways in which entertainers and entertainment institutions are creating new content, and/or new ways of delivering content, in response to the challenges posed by the national lockdown. In the case of the Hollywood Museum, it has taken to social media (Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter) to bring the museum to the public. Among other things, Donelle will talk about the series of videos in the works that will see Ruta Lee, Dee Wallace, Judy Tenuta, Bob Bergen and other stars sharing memories about their favorite Museum exhibits. We’ll also ask which of the current exhibits will be on display once the Museum gets the OK to reopen its doors. Donelle Dadigan will join us in our first hour.
This week will also include a return visit by Adam Sharp, president of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (aka the Daytime Emmys). The National Academy oversees The Daytime Emmys, the Sports Emmys, the News and Documentary Emmys, and the technical and engineering Emmys—the ceremonies for which have all been postponed for the time being because of the corona virus pandemic. Daytime television viewership, however, continues to experience double digit growth in competition and viewership presentation, even in this unusual time, while viewership of the nightly network evening news broadcasts has increased by about 50 percent since the lockdown began in March. We’ll talk to Adam about that, as well as what impact the news coverage of COVID-19 may have on next year’s Emmy categories.
Adam will also discuss how the Daytime Emmys rebranded its logo—a dynamic new emblem (seen to the left) that, in many respects, reflects the forward thinking embodied by the National Academy in recent years. Adam Sharp will join us in our first hour.
Last Thursday, Apr. 23, marked the birthday of Roy Orbison, the Rock and Rock Hall of Famer known for such iconic songs as “Blue Bayou,” “Running Scared,” “In Dreams” and, of course, “Pretty Woman.” Orbison sang about love, pain and heartache like few others—no doubt, because he understood it like few others, having experienced more pain and misery than most of us will see in a lifetime, including the tragic deaths of his first wife and first two children.
We’ll remember The Big O this weekend with a replay of our December 2013 conversation with author and musician John Kruth. John’s book Rhapsody in Black: The Life and Music of Roy Orbison not only provides the back story behind every hit record of Orbison, but also includes information about Roy’s many appearances on television, including Roy Orbison: A Black and White Night, the award-winning special produced by Cinemax that is still considered one of the best concert films ever made. As John himself put it, perhaps Roy’s most remarkable attribute was his unfailing ability to make lemonade, no matter what life threw at him. We’ll replay our conversation with John Kruth in our second hour.
