Rob Reiner and The Bacon Brothers on The Bob Edwards Show

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 12:37 pm

Everything goes better with Bacon! (Ah, c’mon…I just had to!)

Today, some celebrity artists. The program of July 24, 2014 started out with actor/director Rob Reiner, and closed with The Bacon Brothers. In this case, I think the intro will do a much better job than I could:

Film director Rob Reiner is my guest today, a man whose credits include Sleepless in Seattle, A Few Good Men, Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally and Stand By Me. Reiner’s latest film opens tomorrow. It’s titled And So It Goes and it stars Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton as next door neighbors. Rob Reiner will talk about growing up as the son of comic writer Carl Reiner and then starring in All in the Family, a truly historic and popular sitcom. And later in the hour, music by the Bacon Brothers, a six piece band fronted by actor Kevin Bacon and his movie composer brother Michael Bacon. The brothers have released seven albums. Their latest is called 36 Cents.

I’ve included the script; while missing the roadmap (that page at the beginning which times-out the show and gives overall segment information), it does include the “prep” for the Bacon Brothers interview. That’s the information provided to Bob by the assigned producer (in this case Brigid McCarthy); as Bob told me when I talked to him in September of 2015, he then uses those questions as a general guide, never fearing to take the conversation in new directions when the guest points the way to something interesting.

(There’s also a page in this script for an interview with Lonnie G. Bunch III which aired on the June 24th show that apparently got inadvertently shuffled-in.)
