George Kennedy, author of Trust Me A Memoir, spoke with Joe Donahue about his career, his book, and who he wished he would've gotten the chance to work with. Listen to the podcast below to learn more about the remarkable George Kennedy!

About the Book
I write like I talk. A long time ago I tried making 'talking and telling the truth' one and the same. That isn't just difficult; it means painfully reviewing things you've been led to believe since you were a child. That's very hard to do. Like many, I have marched along adhering to conventions (sex, color, church, party, gang) without examination. There's a wonderful, protective 'togetherness' in that anonymity. You obey or are damned, less joined together than stuck together. You become an echo rather than a voice.
This book is about what happens when you stop fearing and think.

George Kennedy has appeared in over 200 films and television shows, including Cool Hand Luke, The Dirty Dozen, Airport, Earthquake, Death on the Nile, and The Naked Gun. He most recently appeared in Another Happy Day with Ellen Barkin, Demi Moore, and Ellen Burstyn.

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.

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.”
