The first era of Saturday Night Live that I was exposed to in reruns was the era when Lorne Michaels was not producing the show. That period from 1980 to 1985 really made an impression on me, and one of the cast members from that era who impacted me is my newest interview subject, Gary Kroeger. Gary Kroeger is not just an actor, though. He’s also a committed political activist whose interest in helping people goes all the way back to his show business days. We talked earlier this month about Saturday Night Live, politics and more, and I hope you all enjoy getting to know this great talent.
Several years ago, I asked Lisa, my good friend and fellow lover of retro pop culture, whom she would like to see me interview. She suggested Kristine DeBell. Ms. DeBell is known to film audiences for her work in projects like the classic 70s comedy Meatballs, the Jackie Chan film Battle Creek Brawl, and, more recently, interesting films like Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance and A Talking Cat?. I sent Ms. DeBell an interview request several years after Lisa suggested her, and we spoke on September 26th. I hope you all enjoy getting to know this talented actress.
