Muppet fans were saddened to hear of the passing of longtime Sesame Street writer and composer Tony Geiss earlier this week. We pay tribute to Mr. Geiss’s extensive work by replaying many of our favorite songs and skits, as well as hearing from the man himself.
Later in the show, listener Chase Beecher gives an exciting review of his viewings (yes, plural!) of the new documentary “Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey“. Chase was present for the film’s world premiere at the Sundance film festival, and then saw it again later in the week. He also got to talk with numerous folks who worked on the film, and we have a great time discussing it all. Video footage of him at Sundance WITH ELMO here!
