Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Thursday, August 8, 2013 - 11:30am

Peter Cushing starred in some of the most iconic horror and adventure films of the last half of the 20th Century. He has played Dr. Frankenstein a number of times in Hammer films, as well as van Helsing is another series of films. He had starring roles in The Mummy (1959), She (1964) and was a villain in The Avengers TV series. He has played Dr. Who, Sherlock Holmes as was the deliciously evil Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars. But despite his stunning list of film, television and stage credits, he is not as well known here in the States. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with film historian and writer DAVID MILLER about his fine and comprehensive new biography PETER CUSHING: A LIFE IN FILM

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
