Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Anson Williams

Most of us know this well-known actor as Potsie on the award-winning TV series “Happy Days.” Anson Williams was nominated for Best Supporting Actor and got a Golden Globe for that popular show. In 2011 Williams and four of his co-stars on “Happy Days” filed a lawsuit against CBS claiming they hadn’t been paid merchandising revenues. They each received $65,000 in the suit. Williams as an actor, singer, and director has been involved in many TV productions including “Laverne and Shirley.” A little-known trivia fact is: Anson’s uncle Dr. Henry Heimlich is the inventor of the Heimlich Maneuver. Anson explains how he got the name Potsie and reveals some inside info about the show.
