I was honored to interview my Dark Shadows crush, actually my all around crush, David Selby again. I had him to myself, no sharing with Donnie. We talked Dark Shadows, stalking Kathryn Hepburn, movies. We also talked about what he and Don Knotts (AKA Barney Fife) had in common. What someone said when they saw him teaching. I asked about his advice for having a long lasting marriage with his lovely wife Chip. We talked about so many different things. Hopefully David and I will do a few more. He is endlessly interesting and it would be a labor of love for his many loyal fans. He is a treasure trove of information. He is just simply a treasure. Not only is he incredibly handsome whether as Quentin or with his beautiful head of silver hair, he is a good person. I feel very blessed speaking to him. I've named myself The David Selby Historian.. HA!
I want to thank Michele Tsai, Wally Helvy and Sandra Lynn Sandoval for some questions they wanted me to ask David. Sandra can be heard playing Quentins theme before and after podcast. Also thanks to Joan Prato.
Mostly thanks to David Selby for being such a great guy and doing the show again. He really is the sweetest man. I am so looking forward to talking to him again. He is a doll.
I want to share something David wrote to me on Easter.
"Grace, Bless you, and your listeners....bless the fans- they gave me a life."
Bless you DAVID for bringing much joy into our lives!

WE TALK TO THE FABULOUS DAVID SELBY ABOUT DARK SHADOWS, THE TRUTH OF MANIACAL LAUGHS, WORKING WITH BARBRA STREISAND, MEETING THE OBAMAS AND SO MUCH MORE….
What better day then Valentines Day to post my Dark Shadows crush (my crush in general) David Selby's interview. He was so great. He was charming, funny, honest and a total delight, can you tell I love him..HA!! We talked Dark Shadows and his pals, being married as a sex symbol, the truth behind maniacal laughs and lots more. WE also talked about the movies he did and what is was like working with Barbra Streisand, legendary director George Cukor on the film Rich And Famous and how great Candace Bergan and Jaqueline Bissett were to work with. We got to Falcon Crest and discussed the wonderful Jane Wyman. We also talked about the guest stars that were on the show..Mel Ferrer, Cesar Romero, and a bevy of classic movie goddesses. Kim Novack was a sweetie, his character had an affair with Gina Lolabrigida..OOO LAH LAH...Lana Turner was not Jane Wymans favorite gal, I don't think they ran with the same crowd and lots more. We talked about him being on The Waltons and being the ONLY man other then John Walton to give Livvy a romantic kiss. Check Davids IMDB page if you want to be impressed. He's done so many great things and is still working. Lots of Theatre as well. He talked about how delightful President Obama and Michelle were when he met them. I could have talked to David for hours. I want to do a ten episode podcast titled David Selby Speaks. He is endlessly fascinating and would never be boring..
Thanks so much to David for kindly agreeing to come on our show. Truly if you love him already, you'll love him more.
Thanks so much to our listeners. We really appreciate you so much.
Donnie and Grace xoxoxo
All things David
His impressive career
I want to thank Sandra Lynn Sandavol for letting me use her rendition of Quentins Theme. Its so beautiful..
