Los Angeles, CA, June 14, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Actor and artist Gary Burghoff, who played Radar O’Reilly on the hit TV series M*A*S*H, is guest-hosting this weekend’s AM/FM/XM Satellite Radio broadcast of Animal Radio®. This is Burghoff’s second-time on the syndicated pet show.
Burghoff tells hosts Hal Abrams and Judy Francis that the ‘animal-loving’ character he played on M*A*S*H was written into the script after producer Larry Gelbart visited his house and saw that he rescued animals in ‘real-life.’
“I’ve always had a sensitivity towards nature,” say Burgoff, “as a child, I remember kidnapping our caged-geese and putting them in my neighbor’s pond - much to the consternation of my parents and certainly the family farmer.”
Hear this special Animal Radio® broadcast of on XM Satellite Radio ch. 158 (America’s Talk) Saturday noon eastern and Sunday 9am eastern, or on any of the 90+ AM/FM radio affiliates, including KOST 103.5 Los Angeles. See more listening options at http://AnimalRadio.com
