Irish wake? Two Jews sitting shiva? Call it what you will, but Lionel Chetwynd and I – both old friends of Ron Silver’s – knew that this week’s Poliwood would have to be about the great actor/activist who passed away last weekend. And we knew it would have to be a special one – hence our first special edition: “Remembering Ron Silver”
Ron had told me in New York a couple of months ago that he wanted to be a guest on our show. Well, now he is. We missed him the minute he was gone and we always will. We hope you enjoy our tribute to our friend.
