  1. I tried to leave a comment yesterday, Ladies, but I probably forgot to click ‘Post Comment.’ So, here goes again: Thank You Monica, Rachel and Jen for the chance to relate some of my experiences and feelings with and for Starsky & Hutch. And special thanks to Rachel for finding and posting the clip from ACFS, with David’s shadow in the background. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation and getting to relive all those good times! THX!!!

    1. We screen the comments because we get a lot of spam. And then sometimes forget to check for a couple days, oops! Anyway, you’re very welcome, and thank YOU for taking the time to share your wonderful stories with us.

  2. Great show! I love Pat’s Recollections and this interview gave them even more depth and background.

    Someone recently posted the Coffin shadow scene in an FB group – they were sure it showed David smoking at the scene. 🙂

    1. Thank you! We lucked out in getting Pat for a guest.

      Ah, I missed that post on the FB group! That’s certainly a unique interpretation!

        1. Ahh, no I’m not. There’s enough content in the slash group to keep me entertained, so it’s the only FB group I really check in on.

    2. Hi Mortmere,
      Thanks for commenting on my reminiscences podcast. I’m glad you enjoyed it! FYI, David NEVER smoked on the hot part of a set (where filming was done). If he’d been smoking in that shadow scene, the smoke would have shown in the frame. It’s a David Mannerism that I’m positive he repeated at least one other time in the series (pinching the b0ttom of his nose). So, there’s a challenge fans: find that ‘at least one other time’ and tell us what episode. I used to know every frame of every episode but it’s been too many years…. Alas…
