12/1-Dreama Denver, Larry Lipson

Dreama Denver-Actress - Mrs Bob Denver

For nearly 30 years, Dreama Denver was married to legendary television personality Bob Denver, best known to millions of fans around the globe for his two television iconic roles...first as Maynard J. Krebs, the hip beatnik in THE MANY LIVES OF DOBIE GILLIS...and as the lovable Gilligan in the classic sitcom GILLIGAN'S ISLAND.   The story of the Castaways on Gilligan's Island lives on in syndication, and continues to air worldwide over 40 years after production of the original show ended.  

A working actress who was hired as one of the very first cast members at Walt Disney World, Dreama appeared in dozens of theatrical productions throughout the U.S., appearing opposite stars of the day including Sal Mineo, Doug McClure and Gale Gordon.  She met Bob when the two were cast  as love interests in a theatre production of Woody Allen's "Play It Again Sam", and went on to tour and perform together for many years. Dreama also appeared in the final Gilligan's Island TV movie and co-starred with Bob and a young Joey Lawrence in a TV pilot called "Scamps" before retiring from acting shortly after the birth of their severely autistic son Colin.

The two raised Colin together in Dreama's native West Virginia before Bob's untimely passing in 2005.  Dreama carries on the Denver name as the head of the non-profit Little Buddy Radio and The Denver Foundation, helping disadvantaged children and continuing to spread smiles as Bob did throughout their life together.  Dreama's memoir, Gilligan's Dreams, will be released in 2011 to coincide with an upcoming Gilligan's Island major motion picture.

Larry Lipson - Live from Costa Rica 

Former LA Daily News Food Columnist (50 Years) Larry Lipson is live and direct from his research Institute in Costa Rica. He will talk about wine food and the good life and will have comments From Frommer's Travel Guide: " Wine: Although some European immigrants have been experimenting with wine grape cultivation in Costa Rica, no one has succeeded. The government did sponsor an experimental effort several years ago, but eventually most of the vines were ripped out. If you see Costa Rican wine for sale, it is almost surely from imported Chilean grape juice that is then processed in Costa Rica--the quality is terrible and it is--at least so far--not worth buying except as a total novelty."
