02/25 Robert Davi

Robert Davi, one of the most recognizable entertainers in the world, was singing long before Frank Sinatra hand-picked him to play Mickey Sinardos in the 1977 NBC television drama "Contract on Cherry Street." As a teenager, Davi already had an insatiable desire to not just distinguish himself as a singer, but to follow his idol's lead and become a singer who really could act. Davi studied opera as a young man, and always intended to make singing his career. As fate would have it, however, his screen career took flight and there was no looking back.

An iconic screen presence, Davi worked with the biggest names in Hollywood, from Marlon Brando, Clint Eastwood, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Josh Brolin, Bruce Willis and James Franco, appeared in such iconic pop cultural movies as "Die Hard," "Showgirls," "The Goonies," and considered one of the top three Bond villains, Franz Sanchez, of all time in "License to Kill". His television credits are just as vast, starting with the hit NBC television series "Profiler" and continuing with "Stargate: Atlantis" and most recently "Criminal Minds". Now after 100 movies with remarkable diversity, hit television credits and his award winning directorial film debut ("The Dukes"), Davi is returning to his first love.

While Davi may portray characters in drama, comedy and action that define "the tough guy persona," it's nothing more than an artist working his craft. The real Robert Davi is the man we hear on this album: a sensitive romantic; a gentle soul who brings a masculine edge to these songs; a great mixture of sensitivity and toughness.

For the recording, Davi chose two music legends, producer Phil Ramone and mixing engineer Al Schmitt, which speaks volumes about his intentions to make this a meaningful career endeavor.

Frank Sinatra encouraged young singers to "Pick up the torch" and perpetuate this amazing music. With Davi Sings Sinatra, On The Road To Romance (available Oct 24), Davi has heeded the rally cry of "ole blue eyes".

02/01 Billy Gray, Father Knows Best, Charles Smith, Jimmy Mac, Handicapping, Super Bowl

Billy Gray joins the show to share with our audience what he's been up to the past few years...

Five-year-old Gray's first film was a low-budget melodrama, Man of Courage. After that, he spent much of his childhood in front of cameras, appearing in tiny roles in several films every year. Most of his early movies are forgettable, and his earliest film that might be available in a video store is 1951's Jim Thorpe -- All-American, where Burt Lancaster played the Native American athlete, and Gray played Thorpe as a child.

In the mesmerizing science fiction epic The Day the Earth Stood Still, 12-year-old Gray was the unintentional comic relief. He played Patricia Neal's obedient young son, delivering chipper dialogue peppered with lots of "Gee"s and "Aw, Mom"s. On Father Knows Best, Gray played the adolescent son "Bud", and aged from 16 to 22 during the show's long run. The plots were silly, the dialogue trite, but ratings were high. In an interview years later, Gray apologized for the sitcom that made him famous:

"I think we were all well motivated, but what we did was run a hoax. Father Knows Best purported to be a reasonable facsimile of life. And the bad thing is that the model is so deceitful. ... If I could say anything to make up for all the years I lent myself to that kind of bullshit, it would be: You know best."

After the sitcom was cancelled, Gray disappeared from public view for a few years, and competed as a speedway motorcycle racer. In 1962, his squeaky-clean image was shattered when he was arrested for possession of "marijuana seed and residue". Gray's arrest and a short jail term were the only hint of scandal in his entire life, but the publicity made him virtually unemployable in Hollywood for years.

In 1971, he had a brief comeback in the mind-blowing junkie film Dusty and Sweets McGee. Taking advantage of Gray's undeservedly-decadent image, he was cast as "City Life", a greasy-haired heroin dealer who cruised Van Nuys Boulevard looking for underaged girls to have sex with and hook them on drugs. The film's publicity bragged that some cast members were actual street urchins, and Gray was so believable in his role, some viewers refused to believe he was acting: rumors of heroin addiction have dogged him ever since.

The rumors are false, and very frustrating to Gray, who hires lawyers to respond when newspapers cite his alleged addiction as fact. His biggest legal victory came against film critic Leonard Maltin, who wrote in a review of Dusty and Sweets McGee, "Among real-life addicts and pushers shown is Billy Gray of TV's Father Knows Best." Despite Gray's complaints, that sentence appeared in Maltin's best-selling annual movie guide for more than two decades, until Gray sued. The case was settled in 1998, with an undisclosed payment, a rewritten review, and a statement from Maltin: "I did not intend to convey that Billy Gray was a heroin addict or pusher."

Gray now earns his living as co-owner of BigRock Engineering. The company sells his inventions, including the "love'n'thumb self-massager", and the F-1 guitar pick that sticks to the player's finger.

Then Jimmy Mac and Charles Smith join in for the final Handicapping Segment of the season!
