Attack of the Killer Soundtrack! - Episode 31

This week we talk with John Schneider and Tom Wopat, not about their beloved TV series, but about their interest and careers in music. And along the way, we build a soundtrack that is quite different then what you might expect if you were just a fan of their television show.


And as we get our first mail-order guitar, we also discuss... the double feature on Saturday, Broadway musicals, Romeo and Juliet meet Natural Born Killers, Atlanta, Ronnie Milsap, to have a foot in each of those boats, in '77 I drove to New York, Brigadoon, Wisconsin, Welcome Back, Kotter, reuniting with his family, Drift Away, Gordon MacRae, Louisiana, great scotch and popcorn, Bernadette Peters, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, we're equals on stage, Merv Griffin, an alternate universe pair of Dukes, Smokey and the Bandit, Dinah Shore, car shows, Mackinac Island, Brando's no singer, The Great Santini, I invite my friends in and we make movies, Mike Douglas, bottle of red, Steve Earle, ate a lot of popcorn, having a guitar on my back, Chicago, Kirk Douglas, Russ Titelman, Annie get your Gun and City of Angels.


"Yeah, the TV thing I thought was a complete aberration. And I didn't think... was going to do anything. I had no big plan for it."
