Rodney Crowell & Mary Karr on The Bob Edwards Show

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 10:34 pm

Rodney Crowell had visited the Edwards show before in 2005, so when he and Mary Karr released Kin in 2012, it was a natural thing to revisit. Now, I could tell you all about how the two met, and what lead to their collaboration, but since they’re going to tell you themselves in the interview, I’ll skip it. As Bob says in the opening:

Rodney Crowell Is a Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter. Mary Karr is a critically-acclaimed poet and a best-selling author of memoirs. What they have in common are redneck roots in eastern Texas and a gift for using that background to tell moving stories of colorful characters in a certain place and time. Crowell and Karr have joined forces to produce Kin, a cd of songs both poignant and comic-representing the upbringings that were too painful to be appreciated at the time. Guest vocalists on the album include Norah Jones, Vince Gill, Lucinda Williams, Lee Ann Womack, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris and Rodney’s ex–Roseanne Cash.

So enjoy these two for the full hour, originally broadcast June 21st, 2012.

Jerry Lawler & Chad Shaffler on The Bob Edwards Show

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 12:21 pm

Every now and again, The Bob Edwards Show went all-out, choosing as a subject the most elite and aristocratic topics possible. Today’s program is one of those:

Professional Wrestling.

Jerry Lawler and Chad Shaffler visited the program on December 1st, 2011 to talk about Shaffler’s documentary Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin’ which tells the story from the carnival days of Sputnik Monroe to integration, female wrestlers, and Jerry “The King” Lawler, who famously wrestled Andy Kauffman. From the introduction:

Professional wrestling is characterized as a spectacle combining showmanship and athleticism—a soap opera for men. Originating as a carnival sideshow, professional wrestling has had a colorful history—and some of it is captured in the documentary film titled Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin’. Film director Chad Schaffler is my guest today-along with one of his principal subjects-Jerry “The King” Lawler. We’ll discuss Hulk Hogan and Jesse Ventura, the tag teams, the females, the midgets— and the late comic performance artist Andy Kaufman, who went to the hospital after a bout with The King. When we’re done, you’ll know a heel from a babyface.

And if that isn’t enough for you, the program then visited the Nightmare Wrestling School, a professional wrestling school in West Memphis, Arkansas that carries on the tradition of regional training and performances. So join the program as it wraps a corner clothesline around the subject of professional wrestling…
