Wes Britton says...

Once again, variety is the theme of the newest edition of online radio’s “Dave White Presents”!

For example, part one of this week’s double-feature will be Wes Britton’s conversation with keyboardist Mark Wietz, a founding member of the Strawberry Alarm Clock. Mark will tell us the story of the SAC, the composition of “Incense and Peppermints,” all about the group’s appearances in two cult films of the ‘70s, and how film critic Roger Ebert helped reunite the band in 2007— and what SAC is currently recording in the studio!

Then, Dave White will talk with former child-actress Sybil Jason about her books, My 15 Minutes and 5 Minutes More, both of which are delightful romps about Sybil’s years in Hollywood and the many stars she knew and worked with. This interview is especially timely as on Monday, Nov. 23, Turner Classic Movies will be featuring a tribute to Syblil on her birthday by broadcasting four of her films including Little Big Shot (1935), I Found Stella Parish (1935), The Captain’s Kid (1936), and The Great O’Malley (1937). In between the flicks, TMC will share some short Jason features including TV interviews and clips from her other movies.

So check out the films on Monday and join us Tuesday, Nov. 24 for 90 minutes of the Strawberry Alarm Clock, Sybil Jason, “Poor David’s Almanac,” and the usual unusual “Predictably Unpredictable” comedy airing at 7:30 p.m. Pacific Time, 10:30 EST over—

The next day, Wednesday Nov. 25, the show will be available for 24/7 access at—

Hear you then!
