    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

Rupert Holmes and Bob Edwards In Conversation

Filed under: Old-Time Radio, Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 2:41 pm

I know, I know, I’ve been derelict in my duty to post shows…what can I say, working for a living keeps getting in the way of the important stuff. ;) (And no, this is not an April Fool’s joke.)

Rupert Holmes is known for a lot of things…for example, he wrote the preeminent pop tune, The Pina Colada Song. In my hobby, Old-Time Radio, he is beloved for creating the television program Remember WENN, although I will personally never forgive him for the confusion he caused turning the sound effects artist’s name into a pun. He’s written theater works, including his The Mystery of Edwin Drood where the audience completes the story. From the introduction:

Today we’ll explore the many incarnations of a very talented man. Rupert Holmes wrote top-40 songs back in the day when a band might exist only in a studio for several hours. Holmes became a producer for Barbra Streisand and others, then had a hit of his own with the Pina Colada Song. Still bigger successes followed - an Emmy for the nostalgic TV show Remember WENN - and several Tonys for The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Now Rupert Holmes wins Edgar Awards for the mystery novels he writes-complete with companion cd. The latest is titled “Swing.”

On October 13th, 2005, The Bob Edwards Show broadcast Rupert Holmes as the sole guest for the full hour. Please enjoy this conversation with a very interesting man - of course, the script/roadmap from the paper archives is here as well.
