The Angel, Rachel Maddow, Bart Everly

Year End Shout Outs PT 1…

As the year draws to a close, and I have a minute to think back over 2008, I’ve realized something I’d kind of blanked on, while it was happening. During the presidential race, I made it a daily habit of watching Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. I kept thinking that she seemed really familiar, but I couldn’t place it right away…

It took me a minute to realize that it was Rachel, who interviewed me back in ’04 on Air America along with director, Bart Everly, about the documentary film, “Let’s Get Frank.” I scored the film about Congressman Barney Frank and his role in the Clinton Impeachment hearings… So we talked about the differences between scoring a scripted project versus a documentary.

Rachel has earned one of my ’08 shout outs for telling it like is, questioning the absurdities of every day life in politics and helping maintain a level of sanity out there in the big bad world. So thanks, Rachel… and it was nice to meet you. Digging through the archives, we found a photo from that interview…
