This week’s show will include Part 2 of our conversation with actor, singer, producer and screenwriter Aki Aleong. Most of you probably know Aki as Senator Hidoshi on Babylon 5, Mr. Chiang on V: The Series, Colonel Mitamura in Farewell to the King and his starring role opposite Chuck Norris in Missing in Action, Part 3. His career as an actor began in 1955 as a member of the national Broadway production of Teahouse of the August Moon. From there he developed his craft during the days of live television, and has since appeared in more than fifty movies and 150 television shows. He has worked with such stars as Frank Sinatra, John Mills, Michael Rennie, Bette Davis, Marlon Brando, Faye Dunaway, Joanne Woodward, Ben Kingsley, Ernest Borgnine, Martin Landau, Roger Moore, Nick Nolte, Christian Slater, Jean-Claude van Damme, Olivia Hussey, and Pierce Brosnan.

Aki Aleong also has deep roots in the music industry, both as a recording artist and record producer, plus he has several projects in the works, both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. We’ll talk about that, and more, when Aki joins us during our second hour.

Sixties film historian Tom Lisanti will also join us in our second hour. Tom’s latest book, Talking Sixties Drive-In Movies, is a collection of profiles, interviews and tributes about actors and films that were particularly popular among drive-in movie goers during the 1960s. Some chapters center on one particular movie or genre (such as beach party movies, spy spoofs, and the evolution of the “Elvis movie”), while other chapters are career profiles that focus on a given actor. Talking Sixties Drive-In Movies also features recollections from such sixties icons as Shelley Fabares, Nancy Czar, Arlene Charles, Gail Gerber, Christopher Riordan, and Irene Tsu.

Phil Gries will join us in our first hour as we pay tribute to legendary comedian, actor and impressionist Will Jordan as part of The Sounds of Lost Television. Though best known for his uncanny impression of Ed Sullivan, Will Jordan also mimicked such legends from the Golden Ages of Film and Television as Jack Benny, Robert Mitchum, Bing Crosby and Groucho Marx. What set Jordan apart from his contemporaries is that he didn’t just master the voices of these personalities, he contorted his face so that he actually looked like them.

Will Jordan turned 90 earlier in 2017. Phil Gries not only interviewed him this year to mark that occasion, he will share some of that conversation with you, along with a few clips from some of Jordan’s earliest appearances on television, including The Ed Sullivan Show.
