    COLUMBO: A TRIBUTE TO TV'S GREATEST DETECTIVE

    in Entertainment

    We pay tribute to Peter Falk's iconic TV character Columbo, the erratic and absent-minded detective who was a genius at solving homicides.  In his trademark rumpled raincoat, Columbo pesters his suspects, always returning to ask "one more thing."  Joining Richard is "Columbophile," an afficionado of Columbo who has kept the show before the masses.  He describes his dedication:


    "I’ve been active in Twitter circles as @columbophile for about 3 yrs & 13,000 tweets. I’m the number 1 Columbo resource on Twitter. I’m also active on Instagram. I see myself as a facilitator in sharing Columbo humour, insight & style with fellow fans & growing the online Columbo community. I like to see everyday the interactions that go on between my friends & followers who have discovered that shared interest & used it to form relationships & friendships. I’ve been a long-time fan of the show since childhood, watching the reruns of classic episodes, as well as the new ones. My granddad liked the show & I remember watching Bye-Bye Sky High IQ Murder Case & Try & Catch Me at his house with him when I was 9 or 10. It’s no coincidence that they remain amongst my favourite episodes. In the early 2000s I introduced my girlfriend, now wife, to the show on in the UK. She’s Australian & wasn’t familiar with the show, but she enjoyed it as one of the things we had in common. As soon as the show came out on DVD I bought every new season as soon as it became available, & had them shipped over from the US to avoid waiting for UK release. I became a collector of vintage Columbo memorabilia, notably international film posters from the 1970s, I have a collection of those which take pride of place around the house. In the social media age, it’s been fun to share my passion for the program & come across others who share that love."

    Actors Laurene Landon and Mel Novak

    in Lifestyle

    Beautiful, talented, spunky and at times outrageous actress Laurene Landon often portrays tough, two-fisted no-nonsense action heroines with a winning blend of fiery aplomb and cheerful good humor. She played one of two female wrestlers managed by Peter Falk in Robert Aldrich's uproariously funny comedy "All the Marbles" the hilarious flight attendant in "Airplane II: The Sequel," the rugged warrior woman in "Hundra" and police woman Teresa Mallory in "Maniac Cop."


    Also today: Mel Novak is an American award winning character actor who is best known for villainous roles in Black Belt Jones,Bruce Lees Game of Death and Chuck Norris An Eye for An Eye. Novak made his film debut in 1974, appearing in Truck Turner and Black Belt Jones, the former starring Isaac Hayes, the latter Jim Kelly. Subsequent parts in The Ultimate Warrior (1975) starring Yul Brynner, Cat in the Cage (1978), starring Sybil Danning, and others followed. One of his more high-profile parts from the 70's was as the hitman Stick in Game of Death (1978), directed by Robert Clouse.

    Live the Day, a Washington State Cougar Football Podcast

    in Football

    On this edition of Live the Day, will the real Washington State Cougars please stand up? I repeat, will the reall Washington State Cougars please stand up?

The offense looked night and day better under Luke Falk, and the defense played their most consistent game of the season. The question then needs to be asked. Are these the real Cougars for the rest of the season, or was this a mirage? 

    We'll aslo breakdown the Arizona State Sun Devils and get you ready for Saturday. 

    Phone lines are open tonight, and you can also hit Steve up on Twitter @InsiderSteve. We'll see you at 7pm on Live the Day!

    Live the Day, A Washington State Football Podcast

    in Football

    We begin tonight's show with not so good news news. Amid last week's 44-17 loss to the USC Trojans, 5th year senior QB Conner Halliday's WSU career came to an abrupt end when his ankle was shattered by 650 lbs of lineman. With 8:45 minutes left in the first quarter, Leonard Williams rolled Sam Flor on to Halliday's leg. After withering in pain for a good ten minutes, Halliday was carted off the field to much appreciation. With everyone in attendance at Martin Statdium fearfull that Halliday's career was over, WSU Head Coach Mike Leach confimed the diagnosis on Monday. After a few days of digesting this reality, the conversation automatically turned to whether or not Conner Halliday should be considered on of WSU's QB elite. Naturally, we ask this question. Will Conner Halliday go down as one of the greatest QB's in WSU history? 

    We'll also get you ready for Saturday's matchup in Corvalis against the Beavers as the Cougs look to end their 4 game losing streak. Will the Luke Falk era start out with a victory? Tune in at 7pm PST to find out.
