Podcasts by Gino Sassani on October 2nd, 2013
Time-Life and Star Vista have rescued Mama’s Family from home video oblivion. Finally, the entire series is available on DVD. We’re going to have more on that later. On Tuesday I had a chance to chat with the show’s star. That’s right. I talked with Mama herself: Vicki Lawrence. You might remember her from the Carol Burnett Show where Mama first started. You could even recall her talk show a few years back. Most of you will always remember her as Mama. Bang it here to listen to my chat with Vicki Lawrence
