Interview

Andy Breckman? I have his CD! In his bio and in the show, there was never a mention about his life as a singer/songwriter! I did not make the connection until I heard him on the interview. I got "Don't Get Killed" several years ago, and listen to it often.

Andy... if the writers strike goes on... just go back to music and performing!

I LOVE this segment. As an amateur writer, I sympathize with the writers. It's good to hear that they are finding ways to survive inspite of the strike--at least the ones you spoke to.
