Options June 11, 2014: Interview with MIKE MYERS, director of SUPERMENSCH: THE LEGEND OF SHEP GORDON!

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

Actor/director Mike Myers joins us tonight to talk about his newly released documentary Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon! The movie tells the story of, yes, Shep Gordon, who managed the likes of Alice Cooper, Luther Vandross and Pink Floyd before ushering in the culture of the celebrity chef through his work with Emeril Lagasse and others. Mike Myers tells the fascinating story of this legendary manager in his directorial debut; tonight he'll share that story, and the story of directing his first film, with WFMU listeners.

I learned earlier today that someone I know on another corner of the internet worked on this film in the bridge period between its inception and when Mr. Myers took over as producer.

Hi Everyone :)

Very exciting that you have Mike Myers on - I will add as a side note that as a Devils fan I am very happy that he has transferred the luck of the Maple Leafs over to the Rangers ;o)

Looking forward to the usual excellent EFD interview :)

True Story - when I heard the story of Liechtenstein's national anthem (I was like 10) - I wrote lyrics to a national anthem and send them to Liechtenstein.

I got back a ton of cool stamps and an autographed picture of the Prince of Liechtenstein :)

Danne: Cool! Do you still have the stamps from Lichtenstein?
