I’m Brian Daley (hence the clever domain name) and I’m a freelance writer who currently writes for the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences San Francisco/Northern California. I also happen to be cursed with the ability to remember almost everything that I have witnessed during my increasingly lengthy lifetime. Fortunately, a lot of what I have retained is actually fascinating, and through this website, I can share information and insights gathered during a lifetime of reading books, watching too much television, and asking my elders countless annoying questions. Although I would not consider myself an expert or a scholar in the multitude of categories that I write about, my work is always factual, informative, and hopefully entertaining. Any subject, person or event that appears on The Daley Planet will always be something that I not only know a great deal about, but care a lot about as well, even when I may seem to be poking fun at it. Among my main interests are history, sports, movies, classic television and popular music, with a large degree of specialization within those categories. As opinionated as I tend to be, I certainly do not consider myself the final word on anything, and one of the great joys is exchanging viewpoints or obtaining additional information related to whatever is covered.
