George Maharis, co-star of CBS-TV’s “Route 66″ drama of the early 1960s, was interviewed for 21 minutes a few days ago on “The Vintage Rock and Pop Shop” on WFDU radio in New Jersey.
Maharis now is 85 years old.
In 2007, I interviewed Maharis for about a half-hour before “Route 66″ episodes finally trickled out on DVD. It’s become one of the most popular posts on Route 66 News.
All four seasons of “Route 66″ can be purchased here in one box set. If that’s too much for you, there’s a two-disc package of the 11 best episodes here.
