The leading highlight of the week, by far, is Vincentennial – the 100th anniversary of the birth of Vincent Price. Our 24 hour special will air on his birthday, Friday May 27th with multiple episodes of The Saint; Suspense (including Fugue In C-Minor, Name Of The Beast, Pit & The Pendulum, etc); Escape (Three Skeleton Key, Blood Bath, etc); Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar (The Price of Fame Matter) and more.

From his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri the 24 hour special will also feature my interviews with his children – daughter Victoria Price and son V.B. Price as well as famed film producer/director Roger Corman

The special begins at Midnight ET on Friday (so that is Thursday evening 5/26 at 9pm PT, 10pm MT and 11pm CT) and continues for 24 hours.

That’s not all going this week, we also have birthday tributes for John Wayne (Red River, Fort Apache); Al Jolson (The Jazz Singer); Dashiell Hammett (Sam Spade); Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes, Escape-Ring of Thoth); Ben Alexander (Dragnet, Great Gildersleeve) as well as Herbert Marshall, Barbara Luddy, Paul Lukas, Richard Lane and more.

  1. Hi Greg, What is the name of the actor that was on Gunsmoke last week? He was the cattle owner that needed water. I think he is also on a episode this week, I only heard a little of it but it sounded like the same person.

  2. just finished listening to a J.D. marathon a little bit ago. Well thought out characters, story lines and flow/continuation between each episode…makes me wish this kind of all around creative talent existed today on a regular basis!

    Looking forward to Vincentennial on Friday. V.P. is one of the great actors of time in my opinion. He was able to transcend most every media, performing almost any imaginable role at the highest level of sucess one could expect.

    Actors like V.P. used their “it” to achieve the kind of belief in the role they were creating. V.P. couldn’t be “pigeonholed” into being just one character.

  3. I’m SO excited about the “Vincentennial,” especially since I know you’re going to play “Fugue in C-Minor” and an EA Poe story. I always loved VP – his voice was so distinctive yet he was able to be delightfully camp, too. The best thing about Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video was his spoken-word contribution towad the end, especially that laugh. That laugh could curdle blood! So thank you, dear Greg, for honoring one of radio’s finest.

    1. Me too. I wish it was on Saturday so I could listen all day but I hope to hear most of it.
