Gary Collins' intro for this recipe in The Hour Magazine Cookbook reads as follows: "I knew about Tim Reid from WKRP In Cincinnati and about his current role on Simon & Simon, but I didn't know that Tim is a fitness freak with an affinity for health foods. Here he offers us a quick and healthy molasses bread!" TV fans know Tim Reid best as the character DJ "Venus Flytrap".
