Mel Brooks is promoting History of the World, Part 1 on KGO Radio on a show hosted by my dad! Bonus info: I was there in studio and also escorted Mr. Brooks to the TV side to do AM San Francisco. Bonus Bonus info: He was utterly great and even told me a joke -- just to me! A private joke from Mel Brooks to me! Lastly, that network news anchor at the very end, Bob Schmidt? Ten years after this was recorded, I was working with him the the ABC Radio Network Newsroom in NYC.
Bonus Bonus Bonus info: our collective memory is that a very young Tom Hanks was also on that same show promoting Bosom Buddies. I can't verify it but my dad and I both remember it that way so it must be true.
(iTunes is weird sometimes and I'll find things mysteriously deleted. I recovered the full interview on a backup drive and reposted it with the additional content.)
