Hello, Larry

Show Summary

Following the breakup of his marriage, radio talk-show host Larry Alder moved from Los Angeles to Portland, to get a fresh start. He got a job at a radio station KLOW, where Morgan Winslow became the producer for his phone talk show. Earl was Larry's obese engineer. Lary had been given custody of his two daughters, 13-year old Ruthie and 16-year old Diane. Glib and in total control of the air, he was much less sure of himself at home as the single parent of two maturing girls. Leona, a school teacher and neighbor, tried to bring a little of woman's touch to this chaotic household. Larry's ex-wife Marion (Shelley Fabares) also turned up occasionally. Added to the regular cast in the fall of were former Harlem Globetrotters basketball star Meadowlark Lemon, playing himself as a owner of a sporting goods store, and Tommy, a 14-year old neighbor. In February 1980 Larry's retired father, Henry, also moved in. Hello, Larry's timeslot on the NBC schedule was right after the much more popular "Diff'rent Strokes." Since both shows were produced by Tandem Productions, and "Hello, Larry" needed a boost, it was established that Larry Alder and "Diff'rent Strokes," Phillip Drummond were old army buddies. And that Drummond's company had purchased the radio station were Larry worked. The producers hoped that by having the casts of the two shows appear together in crossover episodes so that the much larger "Diff'rent Strokes" audience would be attracted to "Hello, Larry". It never was meant to be.moreless
