Ken Osmond

Our good friend Eric of JustMyShow.com is back and has started a new podcast - rebranding Just My Show to The Throwback. It's a fitting day to post this since it is "Throwback Thursday!" His first episode features a new interview with Ken Osmond, aka Eddie Haskell, from Leave it to Beaver. Eddie Haskell is one of the great characters in sitcom history. Did you know he later became an officer in the LAPD? He has also posted a fun interview he did with director Jay Sandrich a few years back in which he talks about a bunch of the shows he directed such as The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Cosby Show, Soap and the pilot for The Golden Girls. So without further adieu, please listen to the very first episode of The Throwback with guest Ken Osmond! And listen to the "throwback" interview with Jay Sandrich also.
