Rod Serling, “Hogan’s Heroes” and Bob Crane
If Rod Serling didn’t like something, you were going to hear about it. And he hated Hogan’s Heroes.
I knew that Crane, who first came to fame as a radio host, had appeared (voice only) as an announcer in The Twilight Zone‘s “Static”. I also knew that Crane had interviewed Serling on his radio show several times (most notably about “The Shelter”, which you can listen to here), and that he’d starred (post-Hogan’s Heroes) in Night Gallery‘s “House—With Ghost”).
I haven’t read the biography yet (I just purchased the Kindle edition), but if you’re a fan of Serling and/or Crane, I can certainly recommend the post. I could fill this post with quotes and other information from it, but it’s all there. Check it out.
