Actor Robert Conrad Notches Four-Year Radio Anniversary

Last week, the “PM Show with Robert Conrad” eased into its fourth year of weekly, easygoing conversations via a live broadcast at Fullerton restaurant Angelo’s and Vinci’s. Thanks to the Hollywood connections still enjoyed by the one-time star of TV series The Wild Wild West and Black Sheep Squadron, the guest was actress Lesley Ann Warren.

Per OC Register radio columnist Gary Lycan, Conrad has bounced back very nicely from a 2003 car accident and DUI conviction. The audio-video stream is recorded every Thursday from 3 to 5 p.m. for CRN Digital Talk Radio and reaches, according to the broadcaster, a combined five million households nationwide.

“You can applaud,” the former favorite target of Johnny Carson sketches said at the top of his September 22 broadcast. “There’s nothing that says you can’t give me the clap.”

Together with sidekick-pal and CRN CEO Mike Horn, the 82-year-old Chicago native weaves a relaxed and very entertaining two hours. Intriguingly, when Horn first approached the actor in 2007, he wanted him to do a Rush Limbaugh-type political talk radio show.
