Child actor JON PROVOST (TIMMY on the classic TV series "LASSIE") spent last weekend as a guest on the nationally syndicated ANIMAL RADIO. PROVOST, a very active animal advocate, offered some choice recollections of AMERICA's favorite Collie, as well as shot down a popular punch line.
PROVOST told hosts HAL ABRAMS and JUDY FRANCIS that he never fell into a well on the show. Even though JAY LENO coined that phrase to the point where its part of modern day culture, "I've scoured all the scripts from 'LASSIE' and I was never stuck in a well," PROVOST said.
ANIMAL RADIO can be heard on any of the 90+ AM/FM radio affiliates including KOST/LOS ANGELES, and XM Satellite Radio channel 158, Saturday at noon ET and Sunday 9a ET. See a complete list of listening options at AnimalRadio.com.
