Back in 2006-07 I had a gig at KCCT, a Corpus Christi radio station that was an "Air America" affiliate for about a year. I got in good with the program director and learned audio production, gaining some valuable experience, etc., and eventually developing my own weekly show, "ArtScene", showcasing local events in the artistic community. When I learned that composer/performer Marvin Hamlisch was going to be performing with the Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra, I was able to gain a telephone interview with him, and I found him to be very friendly, engaging and enthusiastic. Here's the bulk of the interview -- the Symphony's managing director arrived and we chatted for a few minutes but I have eliminated those bits.
The brilliant Mr. Hamlisch passed on in 2012, one of a very small community of artists who have achieved "EGOT": Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards; and one of two people who have achieved EGOT plus Pulitzer. He was an American Treasure and is sorely missed.
