Six Million Dollar Man
Quick link to iTunes Episode #6
Proving that “the show must go on”, Suzanne shows up with the New Year Flu to ignore Bob’s been-there-done-that arrogance.
She presses him to detail his “below the line” move from Paramount TV and we learn how Bob found himself inside the gates at Universal City Television in its heyday.
With more than 20 prime-time shows on the air from Baretta to The Rockford Files, Universal had a runaway hit with
The Six Million Dollar Man.
As the show’s Location Manager, Bob had an inside track to fulfilling his ambition of becoming a writer…and he took full advantage of it to sell his first story on the show and overcome the “system” that invariably tried to screw young wannabe writers.
While Suzanne details the bio of Lee Majors—cracking wise about Lee and Bob growing 70s-era mustaches–Bob describes life on the inside of The Six Million Dollar Man, recalling the professionalism and good cheer of the show’s iconic star…
…as well as the unforgettable day he spent alone with Farrah Fawcett well before she became a household name on Charlie’s Angels.
Suzanne dishes a little gossip about Lee & Farrah, but admits to wearing the hairstyle Farrah made famous…and throughout the podcast she only coughs once! What a trouper!
