for this week’s episode, i attempt (and fail) to get to the bottom of why John Salley’s searing 2011 interview with Ed Asner for the latter’s inexplicably short-lived “Game On!” series is not mentioned in either thespian (or in Saley’s case, thespian-basketball player’s) Wikipedia entry. Even stranger, “Game On!” is not currently available via any streaming service. Shouldn’t there be streaming provider devoted to this sort of thing, kind of like Light In The Attic? Maybe they could take this up — it would surely reach a more savvy audience than the Black Angels covering Roky Erickson. I don’t know if this is a million dollar idea, but it’s absolutely a thousand dollar idea and who amongst us couldn’t use an extra thousand dollars.
There’s some music this week as well, mostly because John Salley’s interviews are pretty short. STAND BACK AND LEARN, DAVID SUSSKIND.
