Bob Denver will broadcast from his house



Bob Denver, who starred in the '60s sitcom Gilligan's Island, is starting a radio station in his house.

Denver says he plans to promote West Virginia by creating the station downstairs in his Princeton home.

He wants to broadcast oldies music and radio dramas when he takes to the airwaves within a month. He says the station will reach 100,000 people in southern West Virginia.

"I expect it to have quite a reach," he said.

On Gilligan's Island, (1964-67) a small boat was caught in a storm and wrecked on the shore of an uncharted South Pacific island. Denver played the hapless deckhand Gilligan.

Denver, 69, says he's surprised by the following Gilligan's Island has maintained through reruns.

"I love the letters we get from the children. They say, 'My mom and dad said they watched you when they were little.' They can't believe their parents were ever little."
