John Kruth, author of This Bird Has Flown, was on Talk Radio Europe. He spoke with Dave Hodgson of The Daily radio show. They spoke about the book, The Beatles, and more! The podcast is available below, click play to hear what they had to say!

Onstage and Backstage 

About the Book
The Beatles' sixth studio album, Rubber Soul, was a game changer. By December 1965, when the album was released, the Beatles had played the first arena rock show at Shea Stadium for 55,000 delirious fans, been awarded MBE (Member of British Empire) medals, and were indisputably the greatest musical phenomenon since Elvis Presley. With their first film, A Hard Day's Night, John, Paul, George, and Ringo laid down the blueprint for everyone who ever wanted to form a group. The movie, entertaining as it was, became an instruction manual for aspiring pop stars of the day on how to play, dress, and act. Richard Lester's 1964 comedy turned out to be the touchstone for every music video that followed.

Michael Seth Starr, author of Black and Blue: The Redd Foxx Story, spoke St.Louis Public Radio about his book and about the life of Jon Sanford (Redd Foxx). Click play below to hear more!

Onstage and Backstage

 

About the Book
Black and Blue: The Redd Foxx Story tells the remarkable story of Foxx, a veteran comedian and “overnight sensation” at the age of 49 whose early life was defined by adversity – and his post-Sanford and Son years by a blur of women, cocaine, endless lawsuits, financial chaos, and a losing battle with the IRS. Interviews with friends, confidantes, and colleagues provide a unique insight into this generous, brash, vulnerable performer – a man who Norman Lear described as “inherently, innately funny in every part of his being.”
