Bob Barry's Unearthed Interviews

Remember the nearsighted cartoon character Mr. Magoo? Jim Backus told me how he developed that identity. He started his career in radio on CBS as the rich Hubert Updike III on the Allan Young Show and later on TV as the super wealthy Thurston Howell III on the 1960s sitcom Gilligan’s Island. He owned many other radio-TV credits between 1948 and 1989. He will explain what he had to do to make more money in radio at that time.
