Happy Birthday to Robin Riker. Since I'm both really lazy and really late in posting the 'Today's Tune' for today, I'll let Wikipedea (see below) fill you in on this actress that has appeared in some really good television shows.
My favorite TV show that Robin Riker starred in was an incredibly funny show from the 1980's called Brothers, which I used to watch on good old Philly57. It was one of the first TV shows to deal with homosexual characters in a humorous yet respectful way in every episode. The show had a fantastically talented cast as well: Robert Walden as Joe Waters, Paul Regina as Cliff Waters, Brandon Maggart as Lou Waters, Philip Charles MacKenzie as Donald Maltby, Hallie Todd as Penny Waters, Robin Riker as Kelly Hall (Seasons 1-4), Mary Ann Pascal as Samantha "Sam" Booke Waters (Seasons 3-5), Yeardley Smith as Louella Waters (Seasons 4-5), Tommy Hinkley as Jim Grant (Season 4), Timothy Williams as Mike Chandler (Season 5) and Cathryn Hacker as Caroline Waters (Season 5). Hopefully Showtime (Series rights owner) will put the entire thing out on DVD someday real soon.
