Show #137 – November 22, 2009

In Podcast by Steve Swanson1 Comment

To cap our three-part Sesame Street 40th anniversary celebration, I happily bring you a new interview with longtime human cast member Emilio Delgado – better known to many as Luis. Emilio has been a part of the Sesame cast since 1971, which I believe makes Luis the longest continuous role for a Latino actor! We talk about the show’s past, present, and future, Emilio’s personal contributions to children’s cultural education on the Street, and much, much more.

Emilio is also appearing with the group Pink Martini at Town Hall in NYC on December 10 to celebrate their new CD. See “Luis” sing the famous Sesame Street song “Sing”!

The MuppetCast is sponsored by our friends at Bell, Book & Comic. Life should be more Fun!
