I'm surprised Bonnie was not offered some Mr. Pibb.

Bonnie IS "beautiful"--it's the Scottish word for it!

On this day in 1980 - Paul McCartney was jailed in Tokyo for possession of a half pound of marijuana. He spent ten days behind bars before being kicked-out of the country by Japanese authorities. The remainder of his tour was canceled.

We lost 2 supporting TV actors today ....

Dave Madden -- who played "The Partridge Family's" aggravated band manager on the 1970s TV show -- has died after a long illness at age 82 ... TMZ has learned.

Madden played Reuben Kincaid on the show ... who was often bedeviled by the antics of the Partridge kids, particularly Danny, played by Danny Bonaduce.

Dave's former agent tells TMZ ... he died of congestive heart and kidney failure early this morning.

Madden also appeared on another popular 70s TV show, "Laugh-In" and was the author of a couple books, including a book of memoirs published in 2007.

We're told Madden died in Florida ... where he lived with his wife.

ALSO...

The actor who played the Professor in "Gilligan's Island" has died ... TMZ has learned.

Russell Johnson, who played Professor Roy Hinkley, died of natural causes at his home in Washington.

Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann, just posted on Facebook, "My 2 favorite people are now gone. The professor past (sic) away this morning. My heart is broken."

The other person who died is Bob Denver, who played Gilligan. He died in 2005.

Johnson was on the show from 1964 to 1967. Johnson was not in the original opening of the show. He and Mary Ann were referred to as "The rest." But Denver insisted that they be included and that happened later.

Wells went on: "Russell was a true gentleman, a good father, a great friend, and 'the rest.'"

Johnson was married -- this was his third wife. He passed away in hospice, surrounded by his wife and 2 kids.

Johnson was 89.

The only surviving members of the original cast are Mary Ann and Ginger, played by Tina Louise.

i only know her from true grit and that movie of the week - did she continue acting?
Avatar Thu. 1/16/14 6:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Well the Professor's gone off to "the Island", this time never to return for a made-for-TV movie.
Avatar Thu. 1/16/14 6:14pm glenn:

I look so forward to Clay's show but tonight's story looks to be as endless and maudlin as that dump yard snow downer

Yeah -- bit of a bummer.
Avatar Thu. 1/16/14 6:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@sorree: Most of Clay's stories lean towards (and into) the dark side. I love them though. Closest thing to a modern day Twilight Zone.
Avatar Thu. 1/16/14 6:18pm Fuzzy:

Hey Clay! I think the story's going great!

Thanks for your comments. It wasn't my best. I just like to crank 'em out. Sometimes they work. Hope you are all happy and well.

Don't worry about the critics Clay! This is amazing, and besides -- *everything* you do is cranked out rapidly. This one though is legendary!

Avatar Thu. 1/16/14 6:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Have a good one, Ken! Bon voyage on the Dusty Trail (RIP, Bob Denver...)

@Al Dente: Your critique seems mainly on Clay's production. Well, he's ANALOG and proud of it! And his real fans would have it no other way!
Avatar Thu. 1/16/14 6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Clay, play some MELLOWSTONE!!!

Do you have their "National Park" LP with you?

Bon Voyage Professor!

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port
Aboard this tiny ship.

The mate was a mighty sailing man,
The skipper brave and sure.
Five passengers set sail that day
For a three hour tour, a three hour tour.

The weather started getting rough,
The tiny ship was tossed,
If not for the courage of the fearless crew
The minnow would be lost, the minnow would be lost.

The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle
With Gilligan
The Skipper too,
The millionaire and his wife,
The movie star
The professor and Mary Ann,
Here on Gilligans Isle.


So this is the talel of the castways,
They're here for a long, long time,
They'll have to make the best of things,
It's an uphill climb.

The first mate and the Skipper too,
Will do their very best,
To make the others comfortable,
In the tropic island nest.

No phone, no lights no motor cars,
Not a single luxury,
Like Robinson Crusoe,
As primative as can be.

So join us here each week my freinds,
You're sure to get a smile,
From seven stranded castways,
Here on "Gilligan's Isle."

Nice story clay. I'll have to hit the archives to catch the beginning. Still haven't listened to that clown opera that everyone. Raves about, but I have a feeling this phone will open up the floodgates on catching even more fmu
Avatar Thu. 1/16/14 6:50pm Matt from Springfield:

And the closing song too!
Classic Sherwood Schwartz, making sure the theme explains the whole premise of the show. Because "confused people don't laugh".

I'm pretty sure it's Finnish.
  Thu. 1/16/14 6:55pm sorree:

Sorry I was harsh because I love this show and was at FMU during marathon when the Clay/Fabio team first emerged. But reading stories on the radio is a tough gig-- the Doug said, she said stuff. Special folks like Jean Shepard and Dave Emory perfected the radio story. First person seems to work best. It just falls flat if it sounds too readerly

Not true Dale. you seem to have issues with critique.
