Meeting Don Collier, Barbara Luna, and Robert Fuller

I booked a threesome of celebrity guests for the TV show today: Don Collier, Barbara Luna, and Robert Fuller.

Don Collier was a star of many westerns back in the day including The High Chaparral TV show on NBC, numerous movies, and the best Hubba Bubba bubblegum commercial ever made. "Big bubbles, no trouble"!

Barbara Luna starred in multiple TV show episodes in the 1960's and 1970's and the comedy movie "Five Weeks In A Balloon", and one of the highlights of her career (in my opinion) was being cast in an episode of the original 1960's Star Trek TV series. She played Lieutenant Marlena Moreau in the episode titled "Mirror Mirror". She was bad ass.

Robert Fuller starred in multiple western TV shows and movies when they were enormously popular, but I remember him best in a non-western role as Dr. Kelly Fuller in the 1970's TV show "Emergency!".

All of them were a delight to have as guests this morning and were great interviews. I pointed out to them that one of the great highlights of their careers would be the photo you see below. Oddly enough, my joke barely got a laugh.

I have a long way to go to win any awards for my comedy. Long, long, long, long way.
